Throwback Thursday: Brandy & Ray J – “Another Day in Paradise” (Remix)
Today is Ray J’s birthday, so I figured I’d make a selection from his catalog for this week’s TBT post.
In 2001, Brandy and Ray J took on Phil Collin’s classic, “Another Day in Paradise,” for the tribute album, Urban Renewal, which was a collection of “urban” remakes of Collins classics.
The “Paradise” remake served as the album’s lead single and reached the top 10 in many European countries. The single — much like the album — wasn’t promoted in the United States, and quite frankly, if I didn’t live abroad at the time of the song’s release, I probably wouldn’t know it.
The Norwood siblings definitely made this classic their own. And as if a cover wasn’t enough, they made a Stargate-produced remix that knocks oh so hard. Check it out below.
