#songoftheday / REVIEW: CHARLI XCX FEAT. RITA ORA: DOING IT (A.G. COOK REMIX)

We’ve already told you that we felt like there was no reason to add Rita Ora to Charli XCX’s “Doing It.”  We do like Rita, but this version just didn’t differ from the original version much; they simply gave her some of Charli’s lines.  They could have re-recorded it and made it sound more like a real duet but they just had Rita sing some of Charli’s lines and swaped them out, to the best of our knowledge.  But A.G. Cook has delivered a lovely remix of the Charli/Rita version of the track that somehow makes the pairing feel more natural, meanwhile giving the track a more subtle, less cocky vibe.  It’s quite an achievement, really, and we’re curious to hear what A.G. does next.
