Published Jan 20, 2015Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One are preparing to release a self-titled album as Tuxedo on March 3 through Stones Throw Records, and they've given us a taste of what to expect with the single "Number One."
The song is a funky, pop-friendly number that pairs vintage soul elements with bright, modern-sounding synths.
In a statement, the duo explained that the song was inspired by Snoop Dogg's early '90s track "Aint No Fun (If the Homies Can't Have None)." They said, "We always wondered what the original sample was for 'Ain't No Fun.' Since we couldn't figure it out, we decided we would make it."
Hear what they came up with below.
