SHEILA V. - Swimming Pools (DRANK)(ReFix)
Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pools" has been remixed by the lovely Sheila V. The female singer/rapper couldn't resist adding her own unique style to the track with different female vocal sound effects and lyrics that keep a listener tuned in. This project would not be complete without the help of BrickHeadz/Sound Rebel, Shon Roka. With his producing skills and great ear for music, he was able to direct the artist to an individuals' concept. So dive in... B%tch.
