Emeli Sande Gets Kendrick Lamar Assist on "Next to Me" Remix

We've been obsessed over UK soul singer Emeli Sande's "Next to Me" since watching her rousing performance of the song on Ellen, and now the BRIT Award winner has released a remix to the track featuring Kendrick Lamar that rivals the original.

Over a bouncy piano riff, the gravelly-voiced rapper deftly counters Sande's house-diva vocals over thumping drums that punch you repeatedly in the head. Lamar's verses get increasingly insistent as the track progresses, but "Next to Me" remains buoyant enough to cause spontaneous dancing around your apartment.
