Mella Dee’s production on the original version is very strong – my goal was to provide a unique interpretation. ‘Love It or Not’ has a great vocal performance and carries a positive message. I’m proud of my new remix of “Love It or Not” on Three Six Zero Music. Can’t wait to play this for the fans!”
