Young US rap duo Rae Sremmurd have jumped on Baauer’s collaboration with AlunaGeorge on One Touch.
Originally created ‘just for fun’, the addition of Rae Sremmurd’s vocals happened following a chance meeting in Las Vegas. Speaking of the new rendition, Baauer told The Fader, “I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met. The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said ‘you gotta give me something to work with’ and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA V loading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded reaal good. :D”
