Lorde, HAIM, Q-Tip, and Pusha T team up for “Meltdown” — listen

on November 13, 2014, 11:35am

The Lorde-curated soundtrack to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1 is chock full of exciting collaborations between Lorde and Kanye West, The Chemical Brothers, Lorde, and Miguel, and Major Lazer and Ariana Grande. Perhaps most intriguing, however, is the track titled “Meltdown”, which pairs Lorde and HAIM with rap kingpins Pusha T and Q-Tip, and Belgian producer Stromae.

You wouldn’t think such an oddball grouping of musicians would gel together so well, but Lorde and HAIM’s tantalizing chorus proves the perfect bridge for Pusha and Q-Tip’s hard-hitting verses. Listen in below.

The Hunger Games soundtrack is out November 17th and also includes contributions from Bat For Lashes, CHVRCHES (“Dead Air”), Charli XCX, and Raury. See the full tracklist below. Pre-orders are ongoing.
