La Roux teams up with Kanye West for “In for the Kill” remix

Awwww yeah.  Eccentric UK electro/synth pop duo La Roux has teamed up with arguably the hottest rapper in the game right now–Kanye West–to create the remix for “In for the Kill.”  Not only does the enhanced beat off the popular single from La Roux’s self-titled debut album have Ye’s fingerprints all over it, Kanye also spits a wondrous verse about halfway through the track.  A music video will accompany the remix soon.  Says La Roux frontwoman Elly Jackson to MTV News about working with Kanye: “He’s a very exciting person to be around.  He’s a special breed of person.  He’s not quite like anyone I’ve ever met before.  He’s very, very, very creative.  He comes up with ideas every five seconds.  We’ve had a very interesting three days.  It’s a very interesting mix of things.”  And as for the upcoming music video?  “[The setting is] very slick but quite seedy.  [You’re] not quite sure what is going on in a lot of it, but it’s got some amazing visuals, some amazing characters.”  You know where to look when it drops.  For now, preview and download the remix below.
