Rihanna - Cry [NamiK's Bad Boy Gone Good Remix]18th Mar 2012, 02:05 #1
I already know what you're thinking... Rihanna? WHY?!?! SELLOUT!!
but no, it's not like that at all my friends.
Daftclubbers, please do me a favor and hear my new track.
Let the music speak for itself, and this isn't just a "remix."
It's more like an original song, with a Rihanna sample.
I needed to use her words, if you know what I mean.
free download too btw
Rihanna - Cry [NamiK's Bad Boy Gone Good Remix]
Please believe me.
Even if you don't like Rihanna, you will probably still like this song (I hope so!)
So one morning while my roomie was playing video games, I walked over and sat on the couch.
I sung a little random melody to myself like "Dooo, doo-dooo... Dooo, doo-dooo..."
and that's how the melody of this song was born, lol. I immediately opened up FLstudio,
and wrote down the melody, extended it, added some chords, bass, and voila!
It all just kinda clicked, but I didn't actually finish the song until weeks later.
I decided to add Rihanna's voice to the song because that's how I was feeling.
That's why I put Will Smith's voice in there too (word to CH). It's just how I felt...
Let the song speak for itself.
*This song contains a sample from the movie "Hitch"

You never fail to impress me Namik! Again, you take a genre I'm not always 100% on and make it ridiculously classy. Don't know about the "I-I-I heard every word" section though (but I like the Hitch sample). And if you enjoyed working with Rihanna's vocals like that I'd recommend listening to some Todd Edwards remixes (or his original stuff for that matter)! That guy is a genius with vocal editing.

i really enjoyed this remix.
the "great guys like NAMIK" bit scared the crap out of me, haha.
the sequences after it, had me boogyin' a little on my seat; and the unsettling outro was a nice touch, in my opinion.
also, don't stress too hard over the idea that you used a rihanna sample, people have done wonderful justice, using her as a sample (ie. starslinger's remix of we found love - i actually enjoyed the original, being a calvin harris fan, but i really loved his remix).
i don't normally listen to progressive house either, but i found myself engaged through the entire track.
well done. =]

Thank you so frickin much! You guys make me happier than anything in the universe, lol. But just so you guys know, I don't listen to Proggy House. Just every once in a while. but it's too slow and... well, "progressive" lol. Waste's my time. I just didn't really know what to label my song as. "Electro House" would've been weird, I think. In reality, I'm just a sucker for chords, yeah, gotta love some killer chords. I'll check out those 4 links, Champiness. yours too Tom, and sorry for scaring ya. btw I love the outro too, haha. Also creepy
