Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons Team Up for 'Radioactive' Remix

(Radio.com) For all those fans who wanted to get their hands on Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons's mash-up of "M.A.A.D. City" and "Radioactive," which they performed on Sunday night's (Jan. 26) GRAMMYs, you're in luck. Their collaboration is now available on iTunes, but you might be surprised by how little Kendrick has to say this time around.

The studio version of Lamar and Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" remix is is simply the original song with Lamar jumping on for a verse towards the end of the track.

Two-and-a-half minutes into the song, Lamar can be heard spitting about martians, Tater Tots and wanting to be the first rapper on Mars. Though its less dynamic than their live performance, Lamar still manages to electrify the song.

Lamar went into the night with seven nominations for his major debut, Good Kid, m.A.A.d City, but unfortunately he went home empty handed. Some felt he was robbed, including the night's big winner, Macklemore, who wrote K. Dot an apology text that let the Compton rapper know he should have really taken home the prize for Best Hip-Hop Album. "You got robbed," Macklemore wrote. "I wanted you to win. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you." Listen to the remix here.
