Lovecat cover girl Lana Del Rey doesn’t pop her cork for every man she sees, but she did lend her vocals to “Spender”, a track that appears on the All I Know mixtape by UK rapper Smiler. The Born To Die songstress was apparently recording in the studio next to the MC two years ago, and opted to sing a few lines of Sweet Charity showtune “Big Spender” on the track’s chorus. Hear this pair make beautiful music together below.
We’re pretty sure Smiler had no idea how much he’d lucked out by collaborating with Del Rey two years ago. And he was smart to wait till now, when pretty much everyone with Internet access has an opinion on her, to release the track.
As for “Spender” itself, Smiler probably won’t be bothering the thrones of successful overseas MCs Tinie Tempah and Dizzee Rascal anytime soon. But kudos for potentially capturing lighting in a bottle via Del Rey’s playful vocals here.
