Who saw this coming? Hot on the heels of their new six-song EP, The Fear of Fear, released last week, Spiritbox surprised fans today with what will likely stand as the most unexpected collab of 2023: an official "Rock Remix" of chart-topping rapper Megan Thee Stallion's smash single "Cobra."
The new track finds Spiritbox adding singer Courtney LaPlante's signature powerhouse vocals and guitarist Mike Stringer's crunchy djent riffage to the hit song, flipping it into a Linkin Park-esque rap-metal banger. Crank the remix above via its visualizer video.
"Thank you Megan for allowing us the opportunity to collaborate on your already iconic new song 'Cobra,'" LaPlante commented on Instagram, a post she capped with a heart emoji. "I am beyond grateful to you."
In his own Instagram post, Stringer added: "Thank you to Megan for trusting us to mash up both of our worlds. Nothing but respect, and gratitude. It's an absolute honor."
