New arrangements? It's basically the same song with new verses and a slightly different structure.
Probably they used stuff from the sessions to not be the exact same thing.

Loving the Doja vocals.

I don't think her vocals match the feel of the song

I agree but I think what really sounds out of place rap verse. She needs to stop trying to be Nicki Minaj 2.0.

Yes? They’ve added brass arrangements and the Doja verse alters the song original structure a bit, otherwise its the same. Don’t think they recorded any new instruments. The brass was probably cut from the original

I hope there's a version with the extra brass without Doja.

I wasn't expecting a remix but well... I kinda like Doja's singing voice more than her rapping.
