Lil Yachty and Carly Rae Jepsen Remake Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two”
Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock's "It Takes Two" was a staple at house parties during the 1990s. Now, Lil Yachty, Carly Rae Jepsen and Mike Will Made-It have remixed the smash hit for a new Target commercial.
"I wanna rock right now/I'm Lil Yachty, and I'm down if you're down," Lil Boat spits over the classic instrumental. One might not expect the 2016 XXL Freshman to collaborate with pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, but the snippet is sounding pretty good. You can check out a 30-second preview of the "It Takes Two" remake below.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jepsen speaks about the new collaboration and talks about filming the commercial with Yachty and Mike Will Made-It.
"I think that’s what we loved about it! It was reaching from different worlds and coming together to make something that hopefully nobody would expect," Jepsen says. "It was a total blast. Yachty is a lot of fun, and Mike is incredibly talented, so the combo was unlike anything I’d done before."
Jepsen continues, saying she and Yachty had a ton of fun while shooting the Target ad. "One of my favorite moments was filming the teasers with Yachty," she says. "We were just in a shopping cart going back and forth, and Roman was there shouting out directions to us. For some reason, we did about 20 takes of it. We were just in fits of giggles because Yachty was in his element. He could honestly be a comedian on top of everything."
