Lil Wayne Joins Love Mansuy for New “Count On You (Amazon Original)” Remix Only on Amazon Music

Today, Montreal-born, New Jersey-raised artist Love Mansuy released a brand-new remix of his track “Count On You” featuring the multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning music mogul Lil Wayne, which is only available on Amazon Music. Originally drawn from Love’s 2019 EP, Of Age, “Count On You” is an examination of Mansuy’s relationships with his family as he contemplates whether he can count on his family to support him as he pursues his dreams, and the remix finds Wayne adding a new verse that builds on Mansuy’s smooth R&B number. Fans can currently hear Mansuy and Wayne’s track on the R&B Rotation Playlist, Amazon Music’s home for R&B in heavy rotation.

“Being a student of music and the game, Wayne is hip-hop’s Kobe Bryant to me. I was just a kid when I started observing Wayne. His dedication to his craft, his individuality and pure genuineness as a person has always appealed to me. Not only did he revolutionize music with his mixtapes and albums but he cultivated his own sound that in turn cultivated a generation,” said Love Mansuy. “So for a legend like him to recognize my work and respect it enough to jump on my single, a song in which I contemplate the difficulties of choosing to pursue music, while raising a son with my partner, is something you can only dream of. Being an artist is not easy but Lil Wayne has taught me with hard work and dedication you can do anything and his blessing means the world to me.”

This remix is just the latest development for the 27-year-old, Mansuy. Last Fall, the singer released his EP Of Age, which is a heart-wrenching window into a soul struggling with the realities of bringing life into the world and committing to the process of creating a family. The EP finds the 25-year-old singer, songwriter and musician in excavation mode, digging up emotions and putting them under a sonic microscope in order to get closer to an understanding of what “love” really is other than his birth given name that his late mother gave to him.

Lil Wayne released his highly anticipated, 13th solo studio album, symbolically titled, Funeral via Young Money Records/Republic Records. The 24-track album, released earlier this year, was Wayne’s fifth album to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and included standout features from Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby, The-Dream, XXXTentacion, Jay Rock, Takeoff, Adam Levine, O.T. Genasis and Lil Twist. Funeral followed the massive success of Lil Wayne’s long-awaited, RIAA-certified platinum album, Tha Carter V, which also debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 with the second-largest streaming week for an album of all time. And in 2019, Wayne teamed up with blink-182 for an electric, co-headlining tour across North America.

Amazon Music listeners can find Love Mansuy and Lil Wayne’s “Count On You Remix” on Amazon Music’s R&B Rotation playlist, or customers can also simply ask, “Alexa, play the Amazon Original from Love Mansuy,” in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. This remix, secured by the Amazon Originals team, is just another example of how Amazon Music shines a light on emerging talent while also bringing exclusive content to customers. In addition to the new track, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
