R. Kelly has released the remix of his sex-as-chart-topper single “Number One,” which features T-Pain and Keyshia Cole, and lest you think that T-Pain was totally giving up on digitally manipulating his voice for the purpose of topping the charts, the new track is an AutoTune-drenched affair that makes me think the whole lot of them should try and see what Britney Spears is up to. Clip after the jump.
Meanwhile, there’s a remix of Shakira’s “She Wolf” around that also purports to have the Big Ass Chain-wearing singer/rapper on it. “She Wolf” has stalled out on the charts, dipping from No. 11 to No. 13 on the most recent edition of the Billboard Hot 100, and presumably someone thought that adding a lot of AutoTune and a not-as-discoish beat would save it. I am skeptical, but I also know that the goofiness that makes me love “She Wolf” as much as I do was probably death in the eyes of those focus-group members who appreciate being bludgeoned into oblivion with their pop music.
