Kris Wu releases two official remixes of his #1 single, “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott. Norway’s Lido and Chicago’s YehMe2 each offer their own unique rework of the groundbreaking cross-cultural collaboration. Lido uses melodic piano with his signature orchestral flourishes as build up to a percussive club drop while YehMe2 propels his house influenced mix with a four-to-the-floor feel. Released last month, the original track shot up the charts, historically making Kris Wu the first Chinese recording-artist to reach No. 1 on iTunes and racking up over 30M total streams.

Chicago-based producer, YehMe2, came up as half of the pioneering Trap-EDM duo Flosstradamus and has earned a loyal following on SoundCloud where remixes under his new alias have racked up over 1.5M plays.
