Reneé Rapp invited the talented Coco Jones to work together on her new remix to the hit “Tummy Hurts.” The song is part of the “Snow Angel” Deluxe Edition by Rapp, which includes four new songs. Just like the original, the remix is more of a karma warning of what might happen to an ex-lover. The singers take their listeners through the uncomfortable situation that occurs after the unexpected end of a relationship.
The collaboration was quickly followed by a music video in which the two talented artists showcase their awesome singing skills and stunning looks.
A Perfectly Matched Duet
In the song, the “Messy” singer finds herself on the wrong end of a relationship that appears to have come to an abrupt end. Rapp is suffering both emotionally and physically – hence the fitting reference “Tummy Hurts.”
Both the remix and the original songs share the same chorus. In this part of the song, Rapp sings, “Now my tummy hurts, he’s in love with her / But for what it’s worth, they’d make beautiful babies.”However, she flips what seems to be a veiled compliment over by finishing off the chorus singing that the children will grow up to be monsters just like their parents! Rapp is known for having great vocals, but it's her vulnerable and piercing lyricism that stands out the most in her performance.
Coco Jones comes in on the song's second verse, flexing her soulful vocals and lyrics. She encourages the ex-lover in the song to turn to religion, by signing, “Baby, go open a Bible / ‘Cause God knows that sin is a cycle.” She continues by asking whether such guys have to pay for their actions, or whether they get away with it just because they are boys – and that’s how they are supposed to act.
Given the way that both singers complement each other’s message using their verses, it is clear that this was a perfect match – something that Rapp admitted to when talking about how much she enjoyed working on the project with Jones. In one of her Instagram posts, the “I Do” star noted, “Coco Jones, it’s like you were made to be on this track”
Both Rapp and Jones have been dominating their respective genres (pop and R&B) in recent times. And even though no one expected there to be a remix, the project has been a treat, to say the least. The two singers complement each other visually and vocally – making for an exciting audio and visual production.
And They're Both Into Acting!
Music is not the only thing that these two rising stars do well. They are both crushing it in the world of acting – just to show how well their energy is matched. Rapp has appeared in “The Sex Lives of College Girls” as the loveable but sassy Leighton Murray. She also made her big screen debut in “Mean Girls” – the movie-musical adaptation. On her part, Jones has also been featured on “Bel-Air” (the Peacock hit show) playing the role of Hillary Banks.
