“I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” – Jamie xx
Jamie xx got himself a certified summer anthem when he collaborated with Jamaican superstar Popcaan and Young Thug on “I Know there’s gonna be (Good Times)”. At a recent live performance in LA, Jamie xx debuted an extended version of the song featuring a full verse from Popcaan. This is apparently an unfinished version of the official remix but it definitely sounds good enough to share. I wonder if dancehall will ever make a solid comeback to the mainstream, but that’s a discussion for another day! Watch the live footage above.
For the Nerds: Jamie xx sampled “Good Times” by The Persuasions (1972) via Who Sampled.
