Listen to a dope mashup of Kanye West’s ‘Homecoming’ and Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die.’
Mashups can be tricky, especially if the two artists you’re “mashing” have headstrong fan bases who will probably really hate the fact that you effed with the original. But producer Carlos Serrano, the remix master behind that white-hot Adele and Daft Punk remix, has managed to not offend Kanye West stans (VERY shocking) or Lana Del Rey stans with his mashup of Yeezy’s “Homecoming” and Lana’s “Born To Die.” In fact, we think he’s pretty much impressed everyone.
Listen to a mashup of Kanye West’s “Homecoming” and Lana Del Rey’s “Born To Die” after the jump.
Titled “Coming To Die,” Carlos’ mashup is a laid-back, sultry track that layers Kanye’s aggressive rhymes over Lana’s honeyed “Born To Die” instrumentation. Unfortunately, we don’t hear anything from the “Dayglo Reflection” songstress, but we do get plenty of lush vocals from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, whose pipes were featured on Kanye’s original “Homecoming” recording. Is this record gonna soundtrack your next rager? Probably not, but it’s the ideal song to play while you’re taking a long, relaxing bath, cooking or making out with someone. But no seriously, try that last one.
