Lila Drew x Majid Jordan – “2023 Majid Jordan Remix”
“I’m so pumped about these 2023 remixes that Majid Jordan did — they really put a different spin on the song in a way that I could never have imagined when making the song. I don’t typically gravitate towards electronic sounds when writing, and it’s so awesome to hear 2023 taken in that direction. Each remix is quite different, but they’re both 2023 reimagined by a duo I’ve been listening to for so long. And Majid Jordan has made the song into something I’d love to dance to, and I know other people will want to dance to it as well.” – Lila Drew explained
‘2023 Majid Jordan Remix’ takes listeners on a euphoric journey, emphasizing bright synthesizers which contrast beautifully next to a deep, thumping beat.

“It’s about that deep frustration that comes with feeling like you’ll never change – that the things that you hate that you do will continuously be repeated throughout your life, and that fear will always get in the way. It’s about being trapped in your kitchen and paralyzed by the anxiety of growing up and the strange, dark humor in that. That’s something I think of all the time. It’s funny because we’re so much closer to 2023 now compared to when I wrote the track.” – Lila Drew explained
Lila Drew grew up immersed in her parent’s diverse record collection. During that time, she took piano lessons, taught herself how to play guitar, and recorded herself using GarageBand.
