Listen: Chance The Rapper, Clams Casino, and Pia Mia join forces on “Fight For You”

Young adult SciFi flick Divergent has put together an impressive soundtrack, chock full of original songs and collaborations. Already, we’ve heard M83’s contribution in “I Need You”. Now, check out “Fight For You”, the collaboration between Chance The Rapper, producer Clams Casino, and singer Pia Mia.

Despite their somewhat divergent (get it?) musical paths, the trio come together in a kind of splendid harmony. Clams lays down a beat of booming bass drum and static synths, blurring the line between shimmery pop and filthy grime. It just so happens to be a near-perfect accompaniment for Mia’s angelic croon about young love in the face of unmitigated hardship. For his part, Chance occupies the rear of the track, spitting stream of consciousness rhymes that have less to do with the overarching theme but sound gleefully bizarre amidst Clams’ soundscape.
