KAYTRANADA has shared an eclectic rework of Sade‘s 1988 single, “Love Is Stronger Than Pride,” convening elements of lounge and chill-out on his contemporary rinse of the Sade original.
“Love Is Stronger Than Pride” is KAYTRANADA’s second unofficial remix of the English band, with the Toronto producer having previously shared his “Kiss of Life” edit in 2018. His latest features a lush mix of R&B inflection, basslines, guitar melodies, and intricate drum patterns, which comprise a blissful atmosphere for Sade’s serene vocals. The impromptu edit pays direct homage to the contemporary R&B genre as the track includes a melismatic vocal arrangement over the electronically influenced beat.
The edit follows KAYTRANADA’s “NIKE SHOE BOX” collaboration with his brother Lou Phelps, his remix of Dua Lipa‘s “Don’t Start Now,” and the instrumental version of his sophomore album, BUBBA.
