To say Selah Sue's self-tiled debut album released in 2011 was a commercial success is an understatement seeing as the album recently was certified five-times platinum in Europe. The Belgian singer-songwriter's hit single "Ruggamuffin," which was recently released here in the U.S. last week via iTunes, captivated the attention of a certain Roc Nation artist by the name of J. Cole and subsequently spawned an unlikely collaboration between the two artists.
While the pairing may seem odd to some the actual products is quite a treat. The Supa Dups produced remix features two well placed verses from Cole. While I liked the original, I see no reason not to vibe out and enjoy this surprising remix. Stream both the original and the remix below and revisit the video for "Ruggamuffin" which originally appeared on Sue's 2008 Black Part Love EP.
