It’s scary and intimidating but that’s not the only thing in the world right now. We’ve been through crisis before time and time again. We’ve got this. But what you may not know is that human beings are still being human; caring, loving, passionate, and creative. There are many artists that are taking this time as inspiration to create music about the Covid-19 virus. It’s poignant. Remixes are about taking something and making it something completely new. That’s what these remix artists are doing — turning the Covid-19 crisis into an inspiration of art.

Here are remixes inspired by the Corona virus to bring some positivity into the world and your music.

 

 

Bringing you a Pastor Kenneth Copeland COVID-19 Remix is WTFBrahh. This remix is a beat that would be amazing in a rave (separately or together once the quarantine is over).

For a bit of background to this remix, Paster Kenneth Copeland is an American televangelist. Here’s the original video where Copeland discusses the power of God and Christianity to destroy the virus.

“In the Name of Jesus, standing in the office of the prophet of God, I execute judgment on you COVID-19. I execute judgment on you, satan, you destroyer, you killer. You get out. I break your power. You get off this nation. I demand judgment on you. I demand. I demand,” quotes Copeland.

 

 

 

“Donald Trump – CHY CHY CHYNA!!” by Laugh out Loud remixes Trump comments about Covid-19 and it’s origins from China. This remix brings up the concerns of racism against Asians without good reason. Granted, there isn’t a good reason for racism or any sort of discrimination.  Many news sources have noted the increase in xenophobia and discrimination using the corona virus as an excuse.

from The Guardian writes, “Across the US, Chinese Americans, and other Asians, are increasingly living in fear as the corona virus spreads across the country amid racial prejudice that the outbreak is somehow the fault of China. It is a fear grounded in racism, but also promoted from the White House as Donald Trump – and his close advisers – insist on calling it “the Chinese virus”.”

Suyin Haynes of Time magazine writes, “Since the outbreak of corona virus, which was first officially reported to the World Health Organization by Chinese authorities in Wuhan on Dec. 31, several accounts of racism and xenophobia have been reported and documented on social media. While some governments and politicians have denounced such incidents related to the outbreak, others think much more could be done to show support for Chinese communities worldwide.”

Remember this remix and remember that everyone is dealing with the same problems more or less in this outbreak regardless of who they are.

 

 

 

Brought to you by Dave Wave, and Tedros Adhanom, the current Director of WHO, is the #StayHome Remix reminding you to stay home and stay safe. 

As Tedros Adhanom said: “let hope be the antidote to fear, let solidarity be the antidote to blame, let our shared humanity be the antidote to our shared threat…we are all in this together, and we can only succeed together”.

Working together is the only way that we’ll get through this. Working together is how human beings have survived up until this point.

 

 

 

Cardi B ‘Coronavirus (Sh*t Is Real!)’ Remix By DJ iMarkkeyz is a remix of Cardi B’s comments on the Corona Virus. This is a hopping beat for dancing in quarantine.

The original video of Cardi B was posted on her Instagram to highlight her thoughts and concerns on the Corona Virus.

 

 

With 29,331,516 views on this Instagram post alone, it’s no wonder that it got picked up by remixers. With the content and the talent, it’s also no wonder DJ iMarkkeyz’s remix skyrocketed the way it did. This remix has become a viral sensation with worldwide coverage and over 1,449,272 views.

 

 

 

Coronavirus (Trump New Hoax Remix Video) remixed by Remix Maniacs brings more of a political feel to the corona virus with Trump’s comments on the virus being a democratic hoax. Take that as you will.

The creator commented that “In this ever evolving time that we live in, we wanted to provide a little comedic relief to the situation. We have to remember to try and laugh and smile when times are tough. As the nation deals with this Pandemic, Music has always been a powerful way to bring people together. Stay Home, Wash Your Hands, Be safe and we love y’all!”

 

 

 

Coronavirus Remix (COVID-19 Lofi Hip Hop) brought forward by Rifti Beats. This is a lofi remix to bring some chill to all of the political content of these remixes. This is not a specific remix as some of the others were but instead looks at the whole of the pandemic. The voices of the corona virus plus the harsh dry coughs bring forward the solemn seriousness of the virus itself.

 

This is a time to come together (separately in self-isolation) and support one another (from a safe social distance). Remember to be safe and enjoy these tunes!
