Good question. I don't even know what DMX stands for.

BMX is a bicycle.

My wife asked for a BMW and I bought her a BMX. It's only off by one letter....

I remember the BMXs. Quite popular when I was a child.

Better version than the leaked one I think. Bono's vocals haven't changed.

Definitely the best of the collabs released recently.

B really nailed this one.
First Chair. Last Call.

Your comment made me click....

And yes you are correct.  WOW Bono sounds....FANTASTIC!

The beauty of this song is, quite simply; Bono's crooning in contrast to the rough edged rapper's lyrics and traditional beat. I think i like this and im not exactly into rap.

Well done B. And RIP DMX

I'm not into rap either, but I guess I'll have to give it a listen...

I am not into hip hop either but I love this song and i think you are right. This rapping compared to the leaked version creates better contrast to Bono's singing and that's why this version is better.

Yeah somehow it all just kinda fits together and it works. 

Don't know if i heard the leaked version prior to this.
