With over 1 million plays on Soundcloud and YouTube combined, Stwo’s remix of Sango’s record ‘Middle Of Things, Beautiful Wife’ is far and away the biggest thing i have EVER been a part of. The recent success of the song given new life by Stwo, made me a little nostalgic. Here’s the story behind the song.

In January of 2013, Sango sent me a beat titled ‘Middle Of Things’. it had a weird vibe that i had never worked with before, as my ears were rookies to the style of production Soulection artists were creating. I had no idea what to do with the record, but liked it, so about a month later i recorded to it. My brain blank of ideas, i decided to use the beat title as the song title.
I literally wrote the song with no main goal or clue of where i would go next, but it began to flow. A King with big dreams, living them out in real life with his beautiful wife. Not concerned with dominating from their thrones, they travel the world that they believe God created. Living their luxurious dream, they never stay in one city overnight, but instead they make love on their private jet as they fly to the next destination. Whether London, Tokyo, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Sydney, or Spain, they knew that one thing was consistent. Right there in the middle of their laughs, success, and joy was Jesus.
Not thinking all too much of the song, i lazily recorded the lead vocal in one take, (which I’ve done 0 times before and 0 times since). All the while I had no true understanding of who Sango was or that this record would be a big deal to anybody. I finished recording and had it mixed for my 3 song project releasing that March, which is also when i revived my Soundcloud. My post alone gave the song about 1,000 plays. Good stuff for a fairly new artist. Then Sango reposts the record, plus 37,000 plays. At the time, most ever plays for me seeing that my account had 2,000 total plays to that point.
THEN SOULECTION POSTS IT AS A SINGLE FROM SANGO’S ALBUM AND WHAT THE HECK 200,000 PLAYS, I THOUGHT I GOT FAMOUS.
That was the end of the song until Stwo’s remix. I owe him so many hugs. I just never thought my song about a happy marriage, success, and Jesus would ever be a big deal to people. For that song and many other reasons, the SPZRKT stock is steadily increasing in 2014. And right there in the middle of things is Jesus.
