One does not simply tell Skrillex when to release his coveted “Red Lips” remix!
The viral meme broke out earlier this summer after the OWLSA kingpin built a massive amount of hype playing his remix of GTA’s original in sets across the globe. In true artistic fashion, Skrillex had a bigger vision in mind for this release and teased a music video trailer that’s left many of us speechless with excitement!
Skrillex has a long standing history for delivering imaginative music videos that conceptualize his audio creations. "Ragga Bomb", "Burial", "Fuck That" and "Dirty Vibes" featured cinematic depictions throughout their storyline and had some visions of a post-apocalyptic world in all but "Burial". "Red Lips" looks like it's going to be just as legendary to tie into Skrillex's ethos.
The music video drops Monday, November 30th on Apple Music, so be sure to check back to this post when the song and video drop.

Top Dawg Entertainment has a roster of very talented artists including Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Isaiah Rashad, SZA, and Ab-Soul. After multiple years of staying quiet, TDE’s Jay Rock released his album 90059 earlier this year, and one of the best songs off the album just received a major upgrade by none other than Kendrick Lamar.
The beat switch for the second half of “Easy Bake” is possibly the best part of Jay Rock’s album with SZA offering sexy singing over a slick instrumental track complimented by Rock’s on-pont verses. Now Kendrick joins his label mates for a remix titled “Traffic Jam,” and it’s just what the song needed. Kendrick always delivers, and this new verse is no different as he goes in the the incredibly smooth beat making this track one that you’ll need to listen to more than once. Enjoy!
