The 30th episode of OVO Sound Radio delivered plenty of gems. We’re talking new music by everyone from Gucci Mane to Majid Jordan to Popcaan to SAFE; however, there was another track that generated a good amount of buzz on social media: dvsn’s remix of Frank Ocean’s “Godspeed.”
The original version is widely considered one of the standout tracks from Ocean’s Blonde album, with many praising it for its bare-bones sound. Thankfully for fans, dvsn took a similar approach. The duo added an infectious drum track as well as a new verse, while maintaining the song's minimalist vibe. It's more catchy than Ocean's version, but the original's mellow quality is till very much there.
You can listen to the CDQ version below.
In addition to "Godspeed," Nineteen85 also premiered his group's "Dear Summer Sixteen" during his guest DJ set.
