Fat Joe, Remy Ma and The-Dream Drop Valentine’s Day Anthem “Heartbreak”
The New York rappers are the latest MCs to ride the dancehall wave. For four minutes, Joey Crack and Remy trade verses over a feel-good, breezy instrumental, which serves as the perfect Valentine's Day anthem. The-Dream handles the catchy hook, singing, "Now I can't prove my loving/Heartbreak 101/At least stay here in my arms/Until the song's done."
The song is slated to land on Fat Joe and Remy Ma's new joint LP, Plata o Plomo. Fat Joe recently spoke to Billboard about their latest single. “The song has a beautiful vibe," Fat Joe says. "I called Dream because he's one of the greatest and I’ve always wanted to work with him."
Fat Joe and Remy Ma were nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards. Unfortunately, they did not end up taking home the hardware. However, they were both extremely thankful to be considered. XXL recently spoke with Remy Ma, and she shared her excitement about the Grammy nods.
“It was just so amazing. Just to see all your hard work and your determination and…we did the BET Awards, we won that, the Soul Train [Awards], and we won that. But you know, the AMAs, they didn’t nominate us,” Remy says. “So to actually get nominated by the Grammys, which is like, you know, it’s like the Oscars of music, is just like very humbling, and just, I can’t explain how I feel now…I’m smiling for no reason at all.”
