HEART BEAT (DEXPISTOLS REMIX)
HEART BEAT (MANABOON BOOGIE REMIX)
1. HEART BEAT
More of this experimentation Miliyah has been riding on but at least this actually sounds relatively good because instead of that messed up rock-style she took more to a dance style and I thought it’s been a long time coming from Miliyah since she does these kind of songs really well. I do think the chorus doesn’t have enough bang to it, but it’s definitely a song that stands out in this current era.
As for the A-side, it’s a bit more to her style in R&B which at first is nice and all, but the song then dives into dubstep which is really disappointing for me because that’s where it stands for most of the song. At least it’s nice that Miliyah is singing over to try to make it interesting and the song does get better over time. It kind of just grows on you despite the overuse of dubstep, but this is a good track.
3. HEART BEAT (DEXPISTOLS REMIX)
The rest of the single is filled with HEART BEAT remixes. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a DEXPISTOLS remix (last one I think was for Crystal Kay’s “ONE”. Taking out the synths and adding some lighter beats and acoustic guitar, I thought that this was a pretty sweet remix and a lot better than the original track.
4. HEART BEAT (MANABOON BOOGIE REMIX)
The other remix on the single, the MANABOON remix features a piano-led arrangement but keeps the fun going with the arrangement as well. I kind of like this remix the most because it sounds like Miliyah’s style and her vocals seem to fit here the best amongst the original.
I hope there’s an album coming soon just so we could get over the mess this entire era has been for her. Luckily, HEART BEAT is the best single of the four because both A & B-side were actually good and not hot messes, especially after “AIAIAI”. Though, the remixes both were a lot better than the original HEART BEAT so take that as you wish. Pretty good single overall ^_^
