Iris Gold – Freakaholic

Iris Gold Freakaholic

Iris Gold, who made herself known less than a year ago with her debut R&B track “Goldmine”, just dropped a new crazy single. “Freakaholic” is a cover of Egyptian Lover and this new version was produced by MNEK.

As you can read on her Soundcloud account:

The track was born spontaneously in the studio when Iris showed MNEK the video for the original on YouTube, and the two decided the sexy 80’s funk-house gem was due an update.

The new version gets an obvious relift with a lot of attitude (did you recognize the sample of “Scandalous”?). As a club banger, it should definitely become a favorite piece for radios like BBC Radio 1 and DJs. It is quite different from what we heard from her so far but it proves her versatility and everyone need a kickstart like this to launch a career. We have to admit that it is not normally the music that we naturally cover but we have been seduced by this Fleur East-Uptown Funk vibes and by the production of MNEK.

Apparently, there is a video coming that was filmed during a Halloween warehouse party. While waiting for it, you can still watch the video of the original track by Egyptian Lover (1986):

And as a bonus, you can (re)discover her debut single “Goldmine”:
