One of my most anticipated moments of the Grammys last night was a performance by Kendrick Lamar. I did zero research going into the performance, so I don’t know if it was expected that he would perform alongside Imagine Dragons, but nevertheless, I was not expecting it in the least. The outfits and choreography were pretty strange (looked a lot like a scene from Breaking Bad), but Kendrick went off on his verses, and Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons was quite the emphatic performer. I appreciated it.
I also appreciate how quickly the Internet minions released a stream of the new remix (sans a couple verses, but I’ll take what I can get) on both SoundCloud and Spotify. Enjoy both below, and if you’re as curious as I was about what Kendrick is actually saying during that nervous breakdown of a verse, read the lyrics here.
