Today (September 17), Lustre and her label Careless Music released a remix of ‘Ivory’ featuring new verses recorded by Filipino-Canadian R&B duo Manila Grey, with added production from North. It was also accompanied by a rework of her James Reid-assisted song ‘Complicated Love’, also remixed by North.
Listen to both remixes below:
‘Ivory’ and ‘Complicated Love’ are the third and fourth tracks from Lustre’s 2020 debut album ‘Wildest Dreams’ to receive remixes. The album’s title track received a house remix dubbed ‘Wildest Dreams (The Sun Is Falling Remix)’ in February, and in early September, Lustre enlisted Filipino DJ Arthur Tan for a remix of ‘Intoxicated’.
In a three star review of ‘Wildest Dreams’, NME’s Saab Lariosa said the album goes to “unforeseen heights to distinguish [Lustre] from fellow celebrities and carve out an identity separate from who people think she is. It’s this reintroduction, more than the musicality, that leaves a convincing lasting impression.”
Manila Grey released their sophomore album ‘No Saints On Knight Street’ in late March. In 2020, they released a “slowed + reverb” remix of their 2019 debut album ‘No Saints Loading’.
Azel North, Manila Grey’s producer and manager, has produced all of the Filipino-Canadian duo’s releases since their 2016 debut single ‘1z’.
