Scotland and Compton have been united in a remix of “Next To Me.” Emeli Sandé, who is one of the biggest names in UK pop right now (as evidenced by her two trophy haul at the BRIT awards), pairs surprisingly well with Kendrick Lamar. The latter adopts one of his gruffer flows for the guest spot, contrasting excellently with the sweet, FM radio-ready sounds of the original. Check it out below.
