(FP) Toxic Bad Guy LWYMMD (Billie Eilish, Britney Spears)

TOXIC BAD GUY LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO
Billie Eilish vs Taylor Swift vs Britney Spears

Stems:
Billie Eilish - Bad Guy
Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do
Britney Spears - Toxic

Notes:
I'm fairly new to Billie Eilish's music, but when I first heard her track Bad Guy, I immediately thought there was some mashup potential there (actually, the first song that came to mind was Jeff Hardy's theme haha). Ultimately, I decided to bring in Toxic and Look What You Made Me Do (which I realize is a mashup on its own, but I figured I could put my own little twist on it). The three individual instrumentals are so interchangeable that I played around with that a few times throughout the track. The toughest challenge for this was making Billie's vocals legible. At times I couldn't really hear what she's singing (but when I listen to the original track I still have the same trouble lol) but all the vocal layers sometimes made her sound a little muddled. So I spent a lot of time messing around with the EQ of her vocal stems and finally came to something that I think works (mostly). If anyone has any suggestions on other things to try on her vocals, please let me know (I'm using Adobe Audition).

Version 2 (Taylor vocals have been lowered a little bit to match the levels of the other vocals):

Cool idea. I recommend turning down Taylor Swift a little but overall very creative blend.

Oops, yeah I don't know how I didn't catch that the first go around. I lowered the Taylor vocals about 1.5db and it seems to match the other vocals better now. Re-posted the track as Version 2. Thanks!

Congrats on making the Bootie Top Ten List for July, jimmylin!

Sometimes mashups come from two shockingly complementary tracks coming together from opposite corners of the musical spectrum, and sometimes combos are so obvious that they are begging to be put together. Either way, when it works, it works! Great work!
