“Jungle Lady Remix Part 2″ is a a perfect blend of old-school meets contemporary soul meets ’90’s hip-hop. Over the Isley Brother’s “Between the Sheets” sample (famously used on Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa” single), Lion Babe’s Jillian Hervey delivers sweet, soothing vocals, while Haze comes in adopting a Biggie flow.
“Tell me how you want it baby / You know you need a jungle lady / Make me go wild and crazy / So let’s move into the dark / Tell me how you want it baby / You know you need a jungle lady / You know you should stay / Cause I’m never gonna take away my love,” sings Hervey on the chorus.
Haze reciprocates spitting, “You say you’re from the jungle, I was born with the trees / And I’m good with the head like I’m f—in’ Socrates, yo / Question for you, baby, love it’s just hypothesis / I could make you feel like you’re a thunderstorm on top of me.”
The 23-year-old rapper also spoke about her role on the two-stepper. “I liked doing this s—,” Haze told The Fader. “It was like a daydream through nature and a Biggie song. Plus, Jillian sounds dope on it.”
The track, remixed by Jillian’s brother, Devin Christian, will premiere on Kitty Cash’s June mixtape, Love the Free, Volume 3, in addition to Lion Babe’s summer 2016 project. Catch Lion Babe at the 2016 Essence Music Festival on July 1.
