A pile of colourful floppy discs. With one pink disc with a label on it, which features the cover art of my Beyoncé x The Fatback Band mashup. The cover art of which features a shot of Beyoncé at her Renaissance listening party.

I don’t know what it is with me doing mashups of Beyoncé songs that probably should not be touched. But here I am with a “Cuff It” mashup. My second in fact.

“Cuff It” is beloved. And rightly so. It was an instant favourite for many upon listening to Renaissance for the first time and it truly is just a great song. It’s a shame Beyoncé didn’t push it properly as a single or give it a music video, but that’s a whole ‘nother post.

The Fatback Band’s “I Found Lovin’” was a song I always adored growing up. (People in my family always found it weird how I always liked the old shit adults listened to). Everything about it is just so feel-good. It really has become my theme song for a good mood over the years. And even when I’m not feeling all that great, hearing it is always able to lift me a lil’ bit. And “Cuff It” is a song with a very similar energy.

Where-as my first “Cuff It” mashup was for the runways, the high energy lip syncs and the girls who be high on Kool-Aid powder. This one is a whole lot slower and less energetic than the original, which makes it perfect for the elder aunties and uncles to step to at the family functions. And how could I resist throwing in a bit of Cameo’s “Candy”. Seeing as Black folk be doing that dance to the original version of “Cuff It” anyway.
