Kendrick Lamar x Tame Impala - "Backwards"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Kendrick Lamar teams with Tame Impala to drop "Backwards" - a rework of "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" that debuted on the Aussie band's 2012 Lonerism LP - from the Divergent soundtrack. The arrival of "Backwards" coincides with the recent emergence of a new A$AP Rocky track, which also samples the song. This development suggests that Tame Impala is getting way more burn amongst rappers than fans might have expected. It is refreshing, however, to see that the working relationship between rockers and rap cats has yet to wane. That said, Kendrick Lamar follows his buzz worthy Imagine Dragons performance with another impressive showing over a smashing production from Tame Impala. Check the track below to listen to "Backwards" from Kendrick Lamar and Tame Impala. Grab the Divergent Soundtrack on March 11th via iTunes. Stay tuned for more.
