Pop singer Mike Posner has been gearing up to release his sophomore album Sky High since he first released its smash first single “Looks Like Sex” back in December. Although Sky High is set for a February release, little other details have been made available about what else to expect from the rest of the album. What we do know is that he released a music video with a wardrobe that looks like it was inspired by Tron and a little bit of Justin Timberlake’s “My Love” for “Looks Like Sex.” The lights combined with the women have made “She Looks Like Sex” look fantastic. However, away from the fantastic video, little else has been said about his new album \
Perhaps that is why he decided to release his phenomenal acoustic cover of Rick Ross’s “Stay Schemin,”to tide fans over while he works to finish the album. He recorded the song while between things recording in a studio in Miami with his friend “Black Bear” providing back up vocals and guitar. Posner did provide a slight hint about who may be producing on the album when he dropped the name Pharrell while talking to Allhiphop.com.
“I was in Miami the last two weeks working with Pharrell, and after I would finish recording, I would kick it with Rozay at his crib. Rick [Ross], French [Montana], and I went to the club one night in Miami, and I saw the reaction people had to “Stay Schemin”, even though it had only been out for a day. That made me fall in love with the song, and I knew Blackbear and I could put a fresh spin on it.”
“Shout outs to Pharrell for letting me borrow his keyboard in the making of,” he continued, while laughing.
