Usually, when big stars put out remixes of their hits, the strategy is to line up appearances from a bunch of up-and-coming artists. The big hit from Justin Bieber’s recent album Justice is “Peaches,” which went to #1 back in April and which is sadly not a Presidents Of The United States Of America cover.

Three years later, Ludacris told the origin story. On Missy Elliott’s 2002 single “Gossip Folks,” Luda lays out his whole narrative in his usual twisty, frantic bellow: “Knowing he could rap, no one lifted hands/ So he went about his business and devised a plan/ Made a CD, then he hit the block/ 50,000 sold,…

Dominic Fike was born at the end of 1995, and so was his musical aesthetic. Fike, a singer, guitarist, and rapper from Naples, Florida, looks like a hypermodern rap-adjacent pop star — he has an Apple logo tattooed on his face where many people put a teardrop, rocks a loosely androgynous style highlighted by a…
