New Music: Lyrica Anderson – If You’re Remixing This It’s Too Late (Mixtape)


Well this is interesting!

R&B singer-songwriter Lyrica Anderson has decided to drop another mixtape, but this time, she borrowed a few pages from the book of Drake.

The Rap superstar, who released his surprise mixtape album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and debuted at No. 1 with 535,00 copies, hadn’t even had the opportunity to fully bask in its glory before it was deemed as perfection, and Lyrica is giving her stamp of approval as well. Remixing 8 of the tracks from the album, the famed songwriter – who titled her mixtape ‘If You’re Remixing This It’s Too Late‘ as a play on Drizzy’s title – lets it be known that the hate will be real on this one.

Taking her turn at tackling the beats to “Energy,” “Legend,” “Madonna,” “10 Bands,” and more, the sultry singer turns the tracks into anthems for women. While she’s revving up for the release of the third installment to her King Me trilogy, Lyrica has been spending time with the OVO 6 God himself in L.A. – and we’re hoping that a collaboration from the two will be the result.

Take a listen to her flip of Drake’s project below:
