LORDE OVERSEES "HUNGER GAMES"
While the world has to anxiously await the third installment of the "Hunger Games" franchise until tomorrow, you can hear some of the music from the film right now. The eighteen year-old New Zealand artist, Lorde was approached to once again contribute a song but this time she wanted to have a bigger role in creating the soundtrack. She was given the reins to curate the music for "Mockingjay, Part One" and assembled an impressive list of artists to participate.
Kingdom" and Lorde herself with a crazy team featuring rap artists, Q-Tip and Pusha T and the rock group, Haim on Belgian hip-hop artist, Stromae's song, "Meltdown".
She even got Kanye West involved to remix her track, "Yellow Flicker Beat" and re-titled the tune as "Flicker". My favorite part of this whole enterprise is the inclusion of the legendary Grace Jones with the song, "Original Beast". The idea that Lorde was aware who she is, let alone, wise enough to have this incredible performer a part of this project makes me love her even more.
Listen to a few of the tracks from the soundtrack:
"All My Love" - Major Lazer featuring Ariana Grande (2014)
"The Leap" - Tinashe (2014)
"Flicker (Kanye West Re-work)" - Lorde (2014)
"Meltdown" - Stromae featuring Q-Tip, Pusha T, Haim and Lorde (2014)
