A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie has made a name for himself over the last two years with bouncy, piano-heavy hits like "Drowning," "My Shit," and "Say A."
These songs don't need much improving, but the team over at Audiomack couldn't help but fantasize how they would sound backed by a nine-piece orchestra. The experiment worked so well with the Migos that they thought they'd try it again with A Boogie's The Bigger Artist single "Say A."
As expected, the buoyant piano line and colorful verses from A Boogie pair very well with the addition of strings and live drums. Shot in his home state of New York, A Boogie comes across just as comfortable in front of the orchestra as he would performing with a DJ. Looks like Audiomack has found a winning formula here—we're already fantasizing about the possibilities of other rappers in this setting if the series continues.
For comparison, A Boogie dropped the official Michael Garcia-directed visuals for the original, which you can see below.
