Kendrick invites Emeli Sandé on the track for his latest remix of "B****, Don't Kill My Vibe."
Kendrick Lamar had everyone's head nodding with his 2012 slow-banger "B****, Don't Kill My Vibe," from his second album, good kid, m.A.A.d city. But Kendrick was nowhere near finished: Later, the Compton rapper dropped an unofficial street remix featuring Jay-Z, a poignant anti-Molly music video, and now, a brand-new "B****, Don't Kill My Vibe" remix featuring the soulful British singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé.
Listen to Kendrick Lamar featuring Emeli Sandé's "B****, Don't Kill My Vibe (Remix)" after the jump.
With Emeli on the intro, the BRIT Award-winning artist interpolates some of Kendrick's lines into her own: "You don't know what pain is/ You just f*** with famous/ I don't know you but I can tell your energy is dangerous/ You don't know how long it took to finally come alive/ So b****, don't kill my vibe." While the TDE top boss' rhymes remain the same, Emeli adds a special touch to the track. Is her version better than Lady Gaga's? Apples and oranges, friends. But no need to worry -- the vibe is safe and sound here.
