In case you forgot, Kanye West's 2007 hit "Can't Tell Me Nothing" is a classic, steeped in some moody, hard-hitting braggadocio. But take out the thumping bass and Young Jeezy and replace them with Sam Smith's orchestra on "I'm Not the Only One" and you have what sounds a great deal more introspective than the original product. Soundcloud remixer Carlos Serrano slammed the two tracks together recently, and it's amazing how well the mix works. Some might say it's better than either original song. Have a listen.
