Texas & Wu-Tang Clan – Hi

No need to introduce Scottish pop act Texas and no need to introduce American hip hop crew Wu-Tang Clan. No need even, I presume, to mention their earlier collaboration. Or perhaps I should, for those who were born in this century…

In January 1997, Say What You Want was the first single to be released off Texas’ fourth album White On Blonde. It’s the band’s biggest hit to date. A year later, the song was re-recorded featuring Method Man and RZA from Wu-Tang Clan. Re-named Say What You Want (All Day Every Day), this version was re-released as a double A-side with Insane in 1998. Partly thanks to a joint performance of the song at the Brit Awards in London, it became almost as successful as the original.

Over 22 years later, Texas teams up with Wu-Tang Clan again. With the group’s RZA and Ghostface Killah to be exact. Less than 3 minutes long, Hi is a fun upbeat track that gives plenty of room to the rappers in the verses. Basically, Texas singer Sharleen Spiteri only sings the choruses.

Hi is the first single to be released ahead of Texas’ upcoming tenth album of the same name. The long-player will come out in the new year.
