This song is part of our “THE SUMMER 97 (1998 x 2023)” playlist. Check out the full list here.

When the heat becomes too hot to handle, the only way to cool off is to get wet. Beyoncé understood the assignment on the “CUFF IT (WETTER REMIX),” taking a page out of Mariah Carey’s 90s remix handbook to craft a mash-up of her 2022 hit and a two-decade-old hip-hop classic, Twista’s “Wetter.” This quiet-storm-ready version will make things drip where the once-funky original made ’em drop. Sliding atop the throbbing beat, Yoncé serves #BigVersEnergy by delivering both soulful vocal runs and slick-mouthed rap bars that masterfully bring this intercourse between R&B and Hip-Hop to an intense climax.
