And the Weirdest Remix Award goes to… Rick Ross! The Big Boss loved Adele’s new song ‘Hello’ just as much as the rest of us, and it even inspired him to drop his own verse on the track. Give it a listen!
Rick Ross, 39, heard 27-year-old Adele‘s long-awaited new song “Hello” and he realized he just had to be a part of it. Rick “remixed” the track and added his own verse, and the results were… odd. Luckily he uploaded his version for the world to enjoy! You’ve gotta hear this.
We get it, “Hello” is awesome. We sing it in the shower. We sing it in the car. But when you’re a head honcho like Rick, you can take that love to the next level and drop your own remix for everyone to hear. But listening to this one, we almost forgot it was a remix because it sounds almost exactly the same until the 1:20 mark, when Ricky comes in with a pretty emotional verse, beginning with “I miss you kissing my lips” and ending with “from the poorest to the richesssstttt.” Yes, the hissing is included. He also giggled as it fades back into Adele’s chorus. Like we said, weird.

Rick is clearly a true fan of the heartwrenching songstress, announcing the song by tweeting “Salute Adele. I remixed her vibe.
#anotherone #RenzelRemixes #Hello.” The drop is a part of his Renzel Remixes series, where he puts his own verses to other artist’s songs, often asking fans via Twitter what they want to hear him cover. Adele was a surprising choice, and we can’t wait to hear what he does next!
Rick Ross is killin’ it lately. On top of his awesome remixes, he’s got a beautiful new fiancee, Lira Galore, 22, and just dropped a trailer for the music video of his song “Sorry” with Chris Brown, 26. You keep doing you, Ricky, we love it!
