Shekhinah And Mr Eazi Connect On The Remix For ‘Suited’

This is a great jam.

Shekhinah's 2017 certified Platinum hit single "Suited", just like most of the singer's hits, was an amalgamation of R&B, pop and electronic music. The track's so good it was easily one of our favorites songs of last year.

Mr Eazi adds a new verse, which transforms the song into a great duet.
