Summertime hasn’t sounded this ’80s since, well, the 1980s.

Demi Lovato’s “Cool for the Summer” was a straight up party hit this time last year, but it could have been so much more. Thankfully, musician TRONICBOX ripped out all the guts of this 2016 track and turned it into a song that would have been perfect on any number of 1980’s soundtracks for movies like “Pretty In Pink” or “Just One of the Guys.” Fans of the ’80’s synths and instruments will definitely be delighted, and everyone’s fave, the saxophone, makes a delightful cameo. The nostalgic aesthetic might not be for everyone, but it’s obvious that TRONICBOX poured love into every second of this track.

TRONICBOX is known for reimagining modern tracks, like Rihanna’s “Work.”

TRONICBOX deconstructed Rihanna’s “Work” into a ménage à trois of polka, jazz and emo that has to be heard to be believed.

Here’s a bass-slapping flashback version of Fifth Harmony’s “Sledgehammer.”

In the ’80s, people loved themselves some Seinfeld-ish slap-bass sound. Check out the original track, which has a driving bass line that hits hard like, well, a sledgehammer.

After listening to the remix, check out Demi Lovato’s original “Cool for the Summer.”

Lovato’s original version of “Cool for the Summer” really captures the late night, party atmosphere in some parts of Los Angeles. It’s 2016 all the way, decades removed from the TronicBox’s ’80s remix.

So how do you feel about TRONICBOX’s remix of “Cool for the Summer”?

The Island of Guava may have been born out of the mind of Donald Glover, it’s creator, but for Afro-Latinos it is a real place. “Guava Island,”, out now on Amazon, was a concept written by Glover, his brother Stephen, and developed by director Hiro Murai. It made its premiere at the Coachella Arts and Music Festival, and now that’s out to the general public, people have lots of thoughts about this so-called fictional island.

The film, completely shot in Cuba, tells the story of two loves played by Glover and Rihanna is being hailed as a short version of “Purple Rain” because it incorporates original music and love. It’s also so much more than that.

Audiences are loving how Glover perfectly captured the Afro-Latino culture.

Did we mention there’s Spanish in the movie? Oh yes there is.

Afro-Latinidad is not one type of person.

That’s the beauty of the Latino culture, it’s really so many types of people.

Oh, should we discuss Rihanna’s beauty and all that incredible fashion?

Rihanna’s talent and her colorful style in the movie is by far as important as the island and music itself.

Of course, tons of people mused over a chance to visit the island.

So sad not all of us can go!

Now we know what they were doing in Cuba.

For a second there we thought they were on vacation.

Rihanna loved filming the movie in Cuba, by the way.

So much good music too!

You will be dancing while watching it no doubt.

You can still watch it now!

But just be aware, it’s not all fun and games, so grab a tissue. The ending is everything.
