If you didn’t know already, we’ve been obsessed over Kiiara and blackbear’s collab ‘So Sick‘ for the past month. Now, Kiiara and blackbear have teamed up with Danish DJ Martin Jensen for the remix. The collab was already at bop material status, but this remix is truly a masterpiece.
The song’s official collab came out with Kiiara’s debut album lil kiwi, released last month. Kiiara’s album received widespread acclaim. With the remix release, the song has over 15K views on YouTube so far, which you can view below.
We learned that Kiiara wrote ‘So Sick’ about blackbear himself. Kiiara revealed that they briefly dated back in 2016. Yes, you read correctly! Kiiara and blackbear dated, are still friends, and now have a great song together. The two give us a look into that relationship.
‘So Sick’ is a playful song about my relationship with blackbear back in 2016. We dated for a lil and this is a look into that. We stayed friends thru it all even tho I was blocked for a solid 2 years lolll. Bear is incredibly talented and he really brought this song to life. As soon as I cut the vocals on that song I could hear him on it. We hadn’t spoken in a long time but he hit me right back and said he’d love to do it. It ended up being a playful, dramatic song.
According to Entertainment Weekly, ‘So Sick’ is “a bittersweet breakup song that gives the ‘Gold’ singer’s usual blend of electropop and trap a breezy twist.” The remix makes the song even more upbeat and catchier, and you can’t help but dance along to it!
The new track is available on all platforms, and you should add it to all of your playlists right now!
