Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks Team Up for “Blue Jeans” Remix
I CAN’T FEEL MY FACE.
OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD: It’s the collaboration we’ve all been waiting for! Wait–Britney and Madonna did a new song together?! No! Janet and Britney then, surely?! Still no. HEIDI MONTAG AND PARIS HILTON? No. But close. No, actually not close at all. But still, a very good thing!
It’s been talked up for weeks now, and it’s finally arrived: My ever-enchanting Queen Lana Del Rey has joined forces with fellow fashion darling/”212″ rapstress Azealia Banks for the newly debuted Smims & Belle remix of Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans.”
“Tell me what bad boys do/I’m a bad girl, if you want a bad one too/My American dream in jeans so blue,” the rising Harlem-bred MC spits on her verse of the hectic, electro-fied remix.
It’s, you know…it’s good! Really good, actually! It’s hot! Not amazing. Not a mind-blowing collaboration. But it’s better than Beyonce and Shakira‘s “Beautiful Liar,” right Katy Perry? That’ll do, Lana Del Banks. That’ll do.
