Imagine having nearly 170 million streams on a single song. That's the insane reality for Canadian duo Loud Luxury and their golden-voiced collaborator brando. Their single "Body" became a damn-near overnight sensation. It dropped in December 2017, and it continues to be a summer favorite for dancers around the globe.
Before "Body," Loud Luxury were hustling hard, having moved to L.A. to chase their dreams dance production stardom. A chance encounter with brando and his band led them to a session. The singer had already recorded the vocal over a slower, strip-club type beat, but once Loud Luxury picked up the pace and gave it a melodic twist, they knew they had something special.
It's the duo's biggest hit to date, and it's spawned some wonderfully-fresh remixes, too. Today, we celebrate "Body" as the tune that keeps giving back with five our favorite remixes below.
Loud Luxury feat. brando - "Body" (Orjan Nilsen Remix)
The tempo stays lit and brando stays rich and full, but Norway's Orjan Nilsen gives "Body" a serious injection neon lights and Scandinan club energy. Released Armada Records, this remix is for anyone who wants "Body" to cut a little deeper into the night.
Loud Luxury feat. brando - "Body" (Dirtcaps Remix)
Right from its orchestral start, Dirtcaps' remix "Body" is a fresh perspective. The familiar melody and vocal soon comes through over an island-infused rhythm. The catchy hook is twisted into a cool futuristic pop take.
Loud Luxury feat. brando - "Body" (Tim Gunter Remix)
Maybe your "Body" is down with a little bite. Tim Gunter comes through with a peppy edit perfect for sets that like to mix trap and Jersey Club bounce into its bark. It's still bright and bubbly, but it's got a little more edge to rock that sound system in your trunk.

Danish DJ and producer Mike Hawkins keeps the club vibe alive on his hard-hitting remix "Body." This is a bass beast booster for all the heads that really feel like turning up. Unleash your inner monster with this one.
Loud Luxury feat. brando - "Body" (Late Nite Remix)
We finish our list on a come down tip with this cool take from Late Nite. The tempo slows just a tad, so you can catch your breath and the eye that cutie across the room. Let your "Body" do the talking while Late Nite lets the vocal linger on a magical sunset melody.
