Perhaps best known for their breakthrough modern dance revision of Salt-N-Pepa's timeless tune "Let's Talk About Sex" on Spinnin Records, fellow 300 Entertainment signees Cheat Codes have been - for lack of a better term - crushing it. In addition to touring with The Chainsmokers, their crossover track "Queen Elizabeth" has become a fan favorite en route to garnering millions of collective streams online. When asked about the direction they took on their "Pretty Girl" remix, Cheat Codes explained how smitten they were by the original's lyrical significance:
"When we first heard the song we loved the message and how catchy it was. With the remix we wanted to speed it up a little bit, add some of our our own flare, and create a version that could be played in a party / club setting."
Delivering a velvety, infectious vocal performance that resonates over a plethora of bubbly basslines, Maggie Lindemann has watched "Pretty Girl" soar to #5 on the Next Big Sound chart and #26 on the Spotify Viral 50 chart. With a lethal combination of pipes and poise, she is undoubtedly primed for a breakout year.
