Smart devices and home assistants are taking over our lives. So it is only right that they start making music together. The 40th anniversary of rapper’s delight just passed and although we are a little late for the promo it is still something you guys need to check out. I love the way everything was put together.

CELEBRATE THE 40th ANNIVERSARY OF “RAPPER’S DELIGHT” WITH A 2019 COVER FEATURING VOCALS BY SIRI, ALEXA & GOOGLE ASSISTANT.
On September 16, 1979, the Sugarhill Gang released the classic song “Rapper’s Delight” and introduced hip-hop to new audiences worldwide. And just in time for the song’s 40th Anniversary comes a new cover version with a 2019 twist — this version features the voices of three popular virtual assistants, Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant.
Kicking off the track is Apple’s Siri, doing the opening verse originally performed by Wonder Mike. She then throws it to Amazon’s Alexa, who does Big Bank Hank’s notorious 2nd verse. Alexa hands off the song to Google Assistant who raps the longest verse (originally performed by Master Gee), before throwing it back to Siri to take it home.
Despite the expert flow and irresistible disco-rhythms at play in the track, aspiring rappers shouldn’t fear that their efforts be replaced by machines any time soon, because these virtual assistants can’t exactly make hit records on command just yet. The song’s producer, Steven Rosenthal, took about a month to coax the correct lines out of the digital devices and manipulate their cadences in Logic Pro X to perfect their delivery.
“Rapper’s Delight” by Siri, Alexa, & Google Assistant is now playing on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, and Deezer at the following links:
