Pop-rapper Will.i.am recruited some big names in hip hop to appear on the remix of his smash hit "Scream And Shout", including Lil Wayne, Waka Flock, Diddy and Hit-Boy.
Cross genre appeal is something that many rappers have been relying on for awhile now to make the massive dollars in the music industry. Now it’s not enough to just sell hit rap records, but you have to appeal to the fans of massive pop artists. Now Will.i.am and Britney Spears are enlisting Diddy, Waka Flocka, Lil Wayne and Hit-Boy to appear on the remix of Will's hit single “Scream And Shout”.
The original is a collaboration between one-time hip hop artist, turned pop icon, Will.i.am and was produced by hit-maker producer Hit-Boy, who has been open to creating music outside hip hop. He took to twitter to announce the rap remix of the track, “Will I Am + Britney Spears + Hit-Boy + Diddy + Waka + Lil Wayne. #SreamandShoutRemix #HS87.”
No word on when this track will drop, but expect it to get heavy rotation on the mainstream radio stations.
