Hear Emeli Sandé Accent Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’
English singer featured on second official remix
The latest artist to get a crack at Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” is the English singer Emeli Sandé, who emotes over the song’s intro and outro in a version of the track that will be pushed in international markets. This version (via Rap Radar) certainly doesn’t have the same star power as the first remix featuring Jay-Z or the original track featuring Lady Gaga, but it does sound the most organic of the three. Of course, no re-imagining can hold a candle to Kendrick’s raw track, one of the truest standouts of Lamar’s instant classic debut album.
Speaking of good kid, m.A.A.d city, the release will likely soon be in Lamar’s rear view once the promotional cycle for “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe” — its fifth single — comes to a close. That doesn’t mean he will stop touring, though; as the promotional video for Black Hippy’s “U.O.E.N.O.” remix showed, Kendrick and his crew will be on the road through June.
