Even though Kanye has been doing his daddy/hubby thing lately, we can’t forget that he’s a total musical genius! He remixed Lorde’s ‘Yellow Flicker Beat,’ and it’s so awesome. Listen to it here!

Lorde, 18, recently released a video for “Yellow Flicker Beat,” a new track off The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack, but Kanye West has already revamped it into an even more sinister song. It will give you chills!

If you thought Lorde’s original version of “Yellow Flicker Beat” was amazing, then there’s no way you won’t love Kanye’s remix of the track. The rapper took the slightly upbeat song and made it completely dark and even more mystical than before by taking out the chorus drop and opting for a slower build.

Kanye is so talented! He also added a few mysterious sounding echoes for a dramatic affect. But what we love the most is that he added beautiful piano rifts halfway through the song. The light sound is such a perfect contrast to the dark melodies.

Kanye West Makes Lorde’s ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ Sound Even Darker

Kanye undoubtedly makes the song sound a little creepier, but more importantly, the message of the song seems to come across more powerfully this time around.

The song, which was produced for The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 1, gets into the head of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who is taking on the capital in an attempt to save her poor home district.

We love the way that Lorde captured the emotion of the movie, but Kanye made the song sound so much better! Which version do you like best, HollywoodLifers? VOTE and let us know!
