jj “CEO Birthday” (Semi-Jeremih Cover)”

Mysterious Swedish indie-pop entity jj aren’t above tapping into the urban music pool for a little inspiration (previous entries have borrowed hooks, verses and musical signatures from the catalogues of Akon, Lil’ Wayne and The Game), so it doesn’t really come as too much of a surprise that their newest cryptic creation, “CEO Birthday”, would lift melodic and lyrical content from Jeremih’s 2009 debut smash “Birthday Sex”.

The track is no less of a head-scratching marvel though, heightening the drowsy, lullabye undertones of “Birthday Sex” through singer Elin Kastlander’s gentle, ethereal coos and an extended downbeat instrumental section that brings to mind the chilled erotica of Art of Noise’s avant-garde bedroom staple “Moments In Love”.
