Florida’s finest Cool & Dre join the chart-topping talents of DJ Khalid - yes, another one! - to co-helm the production on Fat Joe’s latest dancefloor banger “Sunshine (The Light)”. Unbelievably, it’s just shy 20-years since the rap royal’s worldwide Ashanti and Ja-Rule aided smash “What’s Luv?” asked the question “what’s love gotta do with a little ménage à”? No comment!

Now, a double decade later, you wouldn’t bet against Fat Joe smashing his way into the charts in similar fashion with a mashup that takes all-time Luther floorfilling classic “Never Too Much” with its instantly recognisable guitar lick and melds it together with one of today’s finest vocalists, Rihanna, as Amorphous drops the R&B-pop princess’ track “Kiss It Better” into the mix. To perfection, making it sound like an original groove from back in the day. It’s that good!

This tune makes you wish for bright and better days and is as uplifting as they come. Special mention for the video which includes all those mentioned above bar Rihanna, but you do get Sean ‘P.Diddy’ Combs and a bevvy of beauties instead. Welcome back Joe with a full-phat killer tune!
