Steve Aoki & Kiiara – Used To Be (feat. Wiz Khalifa)
Featuring the dazzling vocals of Kiiara paired with the hip-hop spitting lyrics of Wiz Khalifa, “Used To Be” transforms Matchbox Twenty’s sensational hit “Unwell” into a star-studded genre-defying collaboration. Steve Aoki showcases his boundary-crossing ability by seamlessly modifying the original into a perfectly crafted melodic dance-pop production. With familiar lyrics declaring, ”I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell,” audiences will be able to sing-along to the revival of the timeless classic.
Directed by Noah Sterling and animated by Dreambear, the track’s accompanying music video sees Steve Aoki, Kiiara, and Wiz Khalifa join together to free a galactic city from an evil villain. With neon-animation and a compelling superhero theme, the video becomes a fun-loving way to depict the track’s release. Noah Sterling is also known for working with lauded acts Doja Cat, The White Stripes, ZAYN, John Legend.
