Steve Aoki x Kiiara x Wiz Khalifa has arrived!
The mega collab titled “Used To Be” is an unexpected twist on the Matchbox Twenty hit “Unwell.” Resonating in new form, the styles of Aoki, Kiiara, and Wiz are strongly represented, all finding a sweet spot in the reimagination of a 2002 classic.
Nearly two decades later, the nostalgia hasn’t worn off as Kiiara takes the reins on familiar vocals, making them her own. Trading the gritty edge of “Unwell” for a bright, EDM-pop soundscape, Aoki adds his golden touch to the production and Wiz lays down a signature verse.
