Hotel Garuda Re-Unite To Usher In “Sweat Season” With Remix of Nelly Furtado’s “Say It Right”
Manila Killa is checking back into Hotel Garuda.
It's welcome news that longtime fans likely did not have on their radar, though in a new announcement made via Instagram this week, it's been revealed the reunited duo has been secretly hard at work on a new project for at least the last seven months. "This time it's different," their statement read in part as they teased the dawn of a new era. "Sweat season is coming."
Fans didn't have to wait long to decode what exactly the duo meant by that last part as they've since quickly followed it up with a remix of Nelly Furtado's Grammy Award-winning hit, "Say It Right."
The spirited single jolts off to the races with an unrelenting hard dance beat while receiving a tonal uplift from melodic pluck synths. The track preserves the original call-and-response vocal structure of Furtado's 2006 original while adding a flurry of driving dance synths that make for an unexpectedly catchy combination.
The release marks the first single the duo has dropped together since parting ways in 2018.
