British singer-songwriter Julian Perretta has teamed up with multi-platinum US rapper Lil Baby to release an incredible remake of Ginuwine's 1996 hit 'Pony'. Listen to 'Pony' by Julian Perretta feat. Lil Baby here.
After a string of solo hits across Europe, from working with producers like Mark Ronson and to touring with Beyoncé as well as childhood friend Ed Sheeran, 2019 is set to be another big year for Julian Perretta.
On this new release, Julian Perretta reveals: "I decided to make a cover version of this record because I fell in love with this song while being on tour with Ed Sheeran." Recorded by Perretta and arranged by Sheeran, the new instrumentals are hardly reminiscent of the original Timbaland synthesiser hook, and convey a whole new feeling and sound.
Lil Baby's verses add another modern twist to the classic track, while Perretta's emotional vocals shine, delivering a unique trap pop flow. The two came up with the idea of a collaboration after Perretta posted a re-work of Lil Baby's track 'Pure Cocaine'. 'Pony' marks Lil Baby's first team work with a pop artist.
