Experimental Bass music producer XXYYXX's remix of LA singer SIVIK's "U Got" is today's Song of The Day. XXYYXX took the song from Electro Pop territory to the hard to define bass heavy/ RnB world, now SIVIK and XXYYXX have a winner on their hands.

MIYNT - Baby One More Time

This is Britney Spears' debut single "Baby One More Time" but not as you know it! Swedish singer MIYNT injected emotion to the song, transforming it into a heartfelt Folk song. Lyrics like "my loneliness is killing me," resonate alot more when sung acoustically and at times it's hard to believe that this and Britney's song are the same. This is mint.
