ONTD Original: The original or the remix?

Apr 08, 2021 20:55




For all my oldies ONTDers (and lurkers 👀), don't remember back in the day where we would watch BET (or sometimes it was MTV) where we would stay tune to see the remix of our favorite artist songs or just watch because we knew we'll actually hear some good music. I have had the list made for quite some time (like over a year but too lazy to actual finish) of those songs where there are 2 versions (or an original and remix). I let you decide on which version of each song you prefer.
(Polls are included)

Let's start with....
I Wanna Be Down
Brandy

The original is the first single from Brandy's debut album and the remix has the rap gods MC Lyte, Yo-Yo and Queen Latifah. The remix is in a land of its own, it's a classic. But if I had to choose, I'll pick the original since I listen that one more often in the present.
But what which one do you prefer?

The original came off of the duo's Murda Muzik album where the remix had the Queen B. My choice: *check the icon*

The original comes off of their debut album (and was the 4th single from the album) and the remix (which I purchased last year) was produced by Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, Al B. Sure! & DeVante Swing. This is a tough choice since they are both good but I get more hyped with the remix.

The original comes off of their debut album (and is the 2nd single for the album) and the remix features Da Brat and J. Dupri. Another tough choice to make but it’s the remix for me.

The original was the 3rd single from her Daydream album while the remix is the first song where Ms Carey and J. Dupri they collaborated on with Da Brat and Xscape featured on the song. For me this is a no brainer, the remix is the best. Personally, I really don’t like the original and never cared for it even when it first came out in 1995/1996.

The original is from his debut album (and the 3rd single) and the remix features rapper AZ and appearances from Erykah Badu (her first music video appearance), Faith Evans and singer Joi. I believe this is the toughest to choose from since I love them both immensely so I'm not gonna try to pick one.
