Lana Del Rey – “Blue Jeans (Smims&Belle Remix)” (Feat. Azealia Banks)

Smims&Belle is the new DJ project from Mark Foster and Isom Innis, two members of Foster The People. Judging by their first big remix, I’m delighted to note that they sound nothing like Foster The People. However, due warning: They do sound an awful lot like Swedish House Mafia or something. Credit them, however, with keen instincts: They’ve recruited buzzed-about rapper Azealia Banks to rap over a twerked-up rendition of Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans.” It’s better than you’d expect, and it also gives off the distinct impression that everyone involved is about to make so much money. Listen to it below.

Too bad about the timing. If they’d released this a couple of weeks earlier, they could’ve had a readymade Coachella anthem on their hands.
