Listen to Chromeo & La Roux’s ‘Hot Mess’ team-up!

So here it is! The internet’s been chatting all week about Chromeo’s forthcoming single ‘Hot Mess’ which features a version of the track laid out as a duet with La Roux’s Elly Jackson and now we can finally hear it.

Annie Mac, in her awesomeness, premiered the song on her Radio 1 show last night and yours truly ripped it for you all to have a little taster. The back and forth vocals aren’t what I was expecting. I was expecting something simple and, almost, tacked on, but Elly’s parts seem both fresh and like they have been there forever. You wouldn’t necessarily think that Elly’s stark vocals would sit well with Chromeo’s slick Electro Funk, but it really does! Colour me impressed!

This might well be the last time we hear Elly’s unique vocals on an ElectroPop track. Despite riding high in the American dance charts with her US re-release of ‘In For The Kill’, Mz. Jackson has stated she wants to move on from synth music. Damn shame really, another one bites the dust, so enjoy this while you can!
