Jarreau Vandal Remixes Snakehips’ ‘All My Friends’ ft. Tinashe & Chance The Rapper

Following the success of their ‘Forever (Part II)’ EP last year, Snakehips are back alongside two of R&B and Hip-Hop’s most creative new-school artists in Tinashe and Chance The Rapper to present their new single, ‘All My Friends’. An instant success, the collaboration went straight to #1 in the HypeMachine chart and after just securing a top 10 in the UK Singles Chart, they can now unveil a remix from Jarreau Vandal.

‘All My Friends’ evokes the spirit of future-facing Hip-Hop and R&B, with both the sultry vocals of Tinashe and witty, quick-fire wordplay of Chance The Rapper lacing Snakehips’ punchy, dreamscape-like beat with both power and purpose. The hook – both emotional and vividly infectious – grounds the record too, giving it a thoughtful, binding quality sure to lend itself well to international audiences.

The summer of 2015 saw the pair embark on an extensive sold out tour of the US and Canada, playing a mammoth 16 shows throughout May/June and even supporting Major Lazer on their European tour, but not before they played a series of UK dates in March following the release of the ‘Forever (Part II)’ EP. Their exploits also saw them nominated for a MOBO Award in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category alongside the likes of George The Poet, Sinead Harnett and Nao.

His remixes are fresh and provide listeners with a truly new take on the originals.

Following the success of their ‘Forever (Part II)’ EP earlier this year, Snakehips are back alongside two of R&B and Hip-Hop’s most creative new-school artists in Tinashe and Chance The Rapper to present their new single, ‘All My Friends’. An instant success, the collaboration went straight to #1 in the HypeMachine chart, has amassed over 5 million streams and reached #65 in the UK Shazam Chart – and now they can reveal the much anticipated video.

Shot in LA by director Mister Whitmore, the slick visuals explore the characters of a club-night queue via one long sweeping shot, detailing various experiences both good and bad. Tinashe makes an appearance as an outsider looking in on their fortunes whilst singing the track’s anthemic hook, as Whitmore brings the dizzying, eccentric world of late night clubbing to life.
