Allan Kingdom had a pretty good 2016, releasing his excellent Northern Lights project at the beginning of the year after joining Kanye West on ‘All Day‘ back in 2015. It only seems right for him to close out the year with one last track highlighting his hometown by remixing Lil Yachty‘s ‘Minnesota‘. Over the instrumental, Allan showcases his signature refrain by offering a fresh take on Yachty’s original. Reclaiming the song for his home state, Kingdom shouts out Timberwolves’s star Andrew Wiggins and references Prince who also hailed from the state with a refrain of “Purple rain on me.”
On SoundCloud, Allan Kingdom included this message with the song: “Happy New Year Everyone! Thanks 4 everything, new album soon. In the meantime, here’s one for Minnesota.” So the St. Paul-based artist has promised that he has a new album on the way relatively soon, so it’s nice to get a little taster before the main course arrives later this year. While his ‘Minnesota‘ remix definitely won’t turn up on his next project, it might offer a hint of what to expect.
