Upon its release, “Like Glue” became an international hit. It reached No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and made it into the top ten on UK, Canadian, Irish, and Swiss charts. Richastic’s remix adds heavier drums and his signature vocal chops to the dancehall throwback.
“It’s a lot of fun recreating old songs in a new remix and knowing that they are played in clubs around the world,” Richastic says. “Everyone who appreciates my remixes will be especially happy about “[Like Glue].”
