Smiler – “Spender” (Feat. Lana Del Rey)
In some alternate reality, Lana Del Rey is probably a full-time singer of hooks on rap songs. She briefly took on that role in 2010, singing the hook on “Big Spender,” a song from the London rapper Smiler, who happened to be recording in the studio next to hers. That track, on which LDR sings an interpolation of Shirley Bassey’s “Big Spender,” has now surfaced online, and it’s about to appear on Smiler’s new mixtape All I Know. It’s… weird. Listen to it below.
All I Know is out 2/27.
