09_9 - "Try Again (09_9 Remix) feat. Jack Johnson"

09_9 has a go at interpolating P'ierre Bournes' "Try Again" with his latest single. Instead of keeping the beat at a slower pace like the original record, 09_9 switches things up by upping the pitch of P'ierre Bourne's delivery and accelerating the rhythm. His take on "Try Again" is encapsulated with a line of hyper pop elements and video game-styled synths at a hit of the drum. After this, piano loops and space trap arrangements emerge, making the listen even more enticing. 


Before the soundscape hits its three-minute mark, a sonic beam riding effortlessly with the tempo can be heard. "Try Again" is a reflective offering that finds P'ierre giving the uninspired an ounce of hope and speaking on how he found light within the darkness. 

"Yeah, you're almost there, your time is up/Yeah, I know you're scared, don't press your luck," P'ierre Bourne raps. "You're stressed enough, yeah, you're blessed so much/Man, I thank God, he keep blessin' us." 


He also spits, "Just like scholarships, I learned how to get rich/I might change my name, all these counterfeits/She gon' scream my name like she throwin' fits/They throw shade, I get bread, I get lit, lit-lit-lit/Temper tantrums, they'll say it, just like lil' kids/I was broke, prayin' to the Lord, forgive me for my sins."
