JaVonté‘s “April’s Fool” just got a shiny new suit from Stones Throw member Mndsgn. Maintaining the rich, amber-like essence of the grooved-drenched breakup ballad’s original version, this breezy rework is the perfect kick back jam for the coming seasonal transition. And, spoiler alert, a subtle beat flip at the 3:35 mark envelops the Los Angeles-based crooner’s silky harmonies in audibly intoxicating bliss.
JaVonté recently shared a visual for “April’s Fool” and was thrilled to learn of the production ace’s interest in its remix. “…and [I was] eager to see how he would interpret the song. After just a few days, he emailed me the finished record. Sure enough, the remix is a masterpiece. So much, that it makes the original sound like a remix. All I could do was smile and keep rewinding and replaying the song. I sent him a message via Instagram that said, ‘Wowwww! You’re the man!’ to which his very humble reply was, ‘Thank you for letting me flip your song.’” Take a listen below.
