A remix you didn’t know was on the horizon will soon arrive from Twista. The fast-rapping music icon has reportedly worked on his version of Beyoncé’s acclaimed “Cuff It.” The Renaissance track’s original version was already enough for fans, but after DJ Esentrik chopped and screwed the song, it became a TikTok hit. Esentrik blended Twista’s 2009 single “Wetter” with “Cuff It,” slowing down the dance hit to make it a body-rolling R&B jam.
Earlier this week, Twista paid homage to “Wetter” on his Instagram page. Today (February 9), The Neighborhood Talk reported they spoke with the Chi-Town star, who confirmed that he’s working on his version of a “Cuff It” remix. “Working on it as we speak,” he was said to have exclaimed. This news was well-received by Hip Hop and R&B lovers who can’t wait to hear what he’s come up with.

Esentrik’s Twista-infused “Cuff It” remix wasn’t lost on Beyoncé, who decided to release it as an official single. “Soooo I’ve been hiding this for awhile and now I can finally say it!” Estrentik tweeted. “CUFF IT WETTER REMIX IS OFFICIAL! Thank you to @beyonce @parkwood and most importantly the DJs and fans that supported this from the start! Love to all!” Bey even added another verse to the track to spice things up.
Meanwhile, “Cuff It” was a big winner for Beyoncé at last weekend’s Grammy Awards. The track helped Bey become the most awarded artist in Grammy history, and in her speech, the singer thanked God, her family, and the queer community for their “love.” She said, “I’m trying not to be too emotional. I’m trying to just receive this night.” Despite her accomplishment, people still believed she deserved Album of the Year.

That title went to Harry Styles, who dominated the charts and social media spaces as well. Still, complaints poured in, and even Jay-Z recognized that The Recording Academy often misses important moments in music history. As news of the Renaissance Tour heats up—and rumors that it’s just the first of a trilogy take storm—the world is preparing for much more Beyoncé, sooner than later.
