Latto joined by Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled on remix for “Big Energy”


Rapper Latto is being joined by Mariah Carey and DJ Khaled for the remix of her hit song, “Big Energy.” That original track features a sample from Tom Tom Club’s 1981 single, “Genius Of Love,” which was also used on Carey’s hit, “Fantasy.” The original version of Latto’s “Big Energy” hit No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was the first top 40 hit for the 23-year-old Atlanta rapper,

Latto also just released her new LP, 777, which features other big names, including Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino, and more. Celebrating the release of 777, Latto wrote, “Just up still on a high from all the love I received on my album release day… I used to sell my mixtapes for a dollar dawg. This sh** hit different. I don’t take nothing about it for granted.”

Latto said of “Big Energy” in a recent interview with Billboard: “I basically took this masculine, trendy ‘big d–k energy’ quote from Twitter and made it a thing where all genders can have ‘big energy’ and take it deeper than just [something] sexual. I wanted it to be empowering. It’s an aura that you carry and a confidence. It’s just an overall vibe and when you walk in the room, you have ‘big energy’ and no one can tell you otherwise. It’s an uplifting thing and turning a funny quote into something positive.”
