When we spoke with Jerrod Niemann earlier this year about the merging of hip-hop and EDM in country music he told us he had his own remix coming up that crossed genre lines, but wouldn’t elaborate more than that.
“We’re working on a certain remix right now. I’d hate for it to fall through the cracks,” he said.
That remix turned out to be his current single, “Drink to That All Night” with Pitbull. Today (July 3) the video for the track was released and, well, Pitbull and Niemann bring the party as expected.
“One thing’s for sure. We’re gonna drink all night. Two things for certain, we’re gonna be alright,” Pitbull says at the video’s start, dressed from head to toe in black with his signature sunglasses. As the guys stand around and pose, girls dressed in white and hula-hooping surround them.
While the track isn’t a major departure from Niemann’s original, Pitbull manages to get some product placement in his raps.
“I can drink to that all night. Mix the Voli with the moonshine alright,” he raps, name-dropping his Vodka brand.
In an interview with 99.5 WYCD/Detroit (a Radio.com station), Niemann talked of his collab with Mr. Worldwide.
“Man, he did an amazing job” with the remix, Niemann told Steve Grunwald of CBS Detroit station WYCD. “I didn’t know what to expect [but] he brought it to another level.”
