Listen and Download: Los Rakas Remix Goapele’s ‘Play’

Well, sort of. The Panamanian-Oaklandish reggae-rap duo mercifully didn’t do much to the original song’s loping, low, earwormy bass line — just added yet another layer of sex appeal to an already insanely sexed-up song with a couple verses. Nope, we don’t have any idea what they’re actually saying either — not that it really matters:

Also, Spanish-speakers, take note: Goapele herself is apparently in the dark about the verses’ meaning, too. Help her out, why don’t you?
