Rising star Aminé has enlisted some A-Listers for the remix of his hit track ‘REDMERCEDES’. The track, which was released a few weeks ago on Republic Records, has been praised for its similarities to noughties rap classics from the likes of Missy Elliott and some Timberland. The rapper has taken this on board, inviting the queen herself, Missy Elliott, to spit a verse on the track alongside the UK’s own AJ Tracey. Aminé also adds a previously unheard verse where he pays tribute to the two artists, saying “Missy like my auntie” and “Hey my n*gga AJ, when I’m in the UK red Mercedes waiting in the Terminal 5”.

The collaboration is the latest in a year of unexpected team-ups this year, with Tyga collaborating with Kanye West on ‘Feel Me’,Rejjie Snow and Joey Bada$$ linking up on ‘Purple Tuesday,’ and Drake supposedly producing Young Thug’s upcoming album which, unsurprisingly, there’s still no sign of. Listen to the ‘REDMERCEDES’ remix below.
