Hudson Mohawke remixes Tweet’s “Oops (Oh My)”—and wow, whatever happened to Tweet? Her time has come, and she’s nowhere to be found!
Previously. Here’s his album. Via TMRW.
I love this. I had a genuine love affair with this song back in 2002, when it made its first appearance. I remember running into my roommate’s room in college, playing her the video, and saying, “Look! Look what’s happened!” It was a hip-hop video! Where the women get all the satisfaction! Lesbian undertones! There’s a subtle subplot about the frustration of the male gaze! No Ja Rule cameo in sight!
It was a breakthrough moment.
Then came the radio edit, with Fabolous delivering one of the ugliest, laziest, sleaziest guest raps I’d ever heard on such a commercial track. It felt like a betrayal.
But it’s been a long time. I’m ready to love this song again. Thanks.
