DJ Premier has always been considered one of the absolute masters of the hip-hop remix, but when he breathed new life into Miguel's "Damned," it became a whole new song.

"2 LOVIN U," now has a new video too. There are layers to what makes "2 LOVIN U" so pleasing, and all of them excel.

DJ Premier's mixing of the instruments gives them such a lively bounce, and Miguel's emotive voice with a classic scratch-hook as only Premier can do allows "2 LOVIN U" to basically be a Venn diagram of hip-hop greatness.

The comparatively minimalist video, showing sultry caressing in the shadows between Miguel's stroll through a Brooklyn warehouse as Premier on the turntables, shows just how the track is bursting with life. It's the first release from Premier's TTT (To The Top) imprint.
