Swae Lee shared a brief cover of Eminem‘s “Stan” on TikTok this week, and now fans are begging for a full remix.
In the clip, Swae can be seen meandering around his apartment shirtless as he sings the song’s hook, which was sampled from the opening lines of “Thank You” by British singer Dido.
Fans in the comments were losing it over how good the Rae Sremmurd rapper sounded doing what he referred to as just a “vocal warmup.”
“Nahh bro sounds angelic,” one fan wrote. While another demanded that Swae, “Remix the whole song immediately.”

On Twitter, the fanfare continued, with fans demanding the “Sunflower” singer remix Eminem’s 200o’s smash, taken from his diamond-selling album, The Marshall Mathers LP.
“@SwaeLee please record a full remix of stan by Eminem,” wrote one fan. “I really need that Stan remix!” another added.

The original video for “Stan” featured Dido in the music video. While the visual has accumulated over 575 million views, Dido told the New York Daily News in 2013 that she has a hard time watching herself in the video.
“That wasn’t my finest moment,” the “Thank You” singer said of her on the toilet in “Stan’s” opening scene. “Every time I watch that video, the beginning bit properly makes me giggle.”
She continued: “I remember sitting on the loo on the set with Eminem and Dr. Dre there and thinking: ‘How surreal can life get?’ It’s quite hard to sit on the loo without wanting to go to the loo. It wasn’t my sexiest moment.”
Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi have been hard at work on their forthcoming album Stremm4Life, which will serve as the pair’s first new album in four years. The pair dropped off the project’s first single “Denial” earlier in the year and returned with “Community Dick” in August, which features Flo Milli.
Music aside, Swae also announced on Tuesday (August 30) that he’s expecting his first child with girlfriend Victoria Kristine.
Kristine revealed the big news on her Instagram page with photos from the safari-themed baby shower.
“Our little wild one is on the way,” she wrote in the caption.
Kristine also confirmed they’re expecting a son by writing “SON OTW @swaelee” on her IG Stories, before showing off a new Land Rover gifted by her “baby daddy” to mark such a special occasion.
