Postmodern Jukebox Is Back and Biggie-er Than Ever With Their Latest Time-Traveling Tune

And if you don't know, now you know.

Postmodern Jukebox, the musical masterminds who made us swing to Drake's "Hotline Bling" and even took Justin Bieber's "Sorry" to Motown are back and Biggie-er than ever.  


In their latest video, the group, featuring singer Maiya Sykes, puts "a jazzy spin" on The Notorious B.I.G.'s “Juicy."

According to Scott Bradlee, the leader of Postmodern Jukebox, "Juicy" wasn't just "one of the most iconic rap songs of the '90s," but also a "permanent fixture" in his car's cassette player. His group's rendition will probably secure the same spot in their devoted fans' Spotify and iTunes playlists. 

Sykes' lavish vocals transforms the original rap into a fast-paced, high-flying jazz ditty, while still paying tribute to the master. "This cover really highlights Maiya's impeccable phrasing, agility, and creativity," Bradlee said in a press release. 

And if you don't know, now you know ... and can watch the full video:

The music video and song release also coincide with the group's announcement of a 45-date North American headlining tour. Kicking off September 29 at The VETS in Providence, R.I., the tour will feature everyone's favorite time-traveling tunes. Tickets went on sale Thursday.
