When Outkast gave us Ms. Jackson, they gave us one of the most infectious songs of all time, and a very fun and playful one at that. Some earworms are not welcome. You can’t get rid of their melody from your head, and you find it annoying. I’ve never felt that way about Ms. Jackson, which will surely pass the test of all time. It makes sense then that Ms. Jackson has been the subject of much remixing and covering over the years, many of them incredibly fresh and innovative (don’t forget ZHU launched his career with an anonymous Outkast mashup/cover not too long ago). That brings us to this track, a banger through and through. New Los Angeles duo Party Pupils bursts on to the scene with an epic version of Ms. Jackson, a hyper active cover re-work that takes the original’s funky hip hop and turns it into a Jersey club bouncing, future funk slicing, and electro house surging sonic oasis. This frisky sleek Ms. Jackson is easily one of my favorite approaches on the track, and we’ve had plenty over the years. Party Pupil’s Ms. Jackson is a free download, here.
