Track of the Day: IDKW – Rvssian, Swae Lee & Shenseea feat. Young Thug

I got put on to this one when my girlfriend told me about some discussion on Facebook where they were questioning the true origins of the sample (interpolation) in this song.

The song has Shenseea and Swae Lee singing what most people would be familiar with as Buju Banton and Wayne Wonder’s “Movie Star” chorus from 1992.

However, that song is actually a remix of Wayne Wonder’s cover of a 2 decades old song called “I Don’t Know Why”, which “IDKW” stands for by the way, originally sung by Delroy Wilson in 1969.

The song “IDKW” itself is OK and the best part is probably Swae Lee’s silky smooth voice singing “I don’t know why” although most of the YouTube comments say it’s Vybz Kartel sampled voice saying “Ayy Rvssian!”


It’s good for a change to get suggestions for new songs to listen to instead of having to go find them. This will help me to complete my 30 day challenge to listen to one new song every day in January which I’m also blogging about.
