Borrowing the name of its originator, the newest rendition builds sentiment with the world famous vocal, all while adding steady house beats, sweet piano chords and searing guitar licks - fabricating a heartfelt and instant classic all over again.

2x Grammy winning,10x Grammy-nominated, 45x platinum – that's a one-of-a-kind success story.

These days, !llmind is more into making his own samples from scratch. You can see for yourself in our inspiring new Sketches video with the Blap God, where he crafts a certified club heater from scratch using MASSIVE X, BATTERY, LO-FI GLOW, and more fire from our new KOMPLETE NOW bundle.
