Lil Yachty & Katy Perry's 'Chained to the Rhythm' Remix Is Better Than the Original: Listen

Katy Perry's "Chained to the Rhythm" gets a fresh and unexpected twist from none other than Lil Yachty, who dropped his remix of the single. Instead of lazily slapping on a guest feature, the rapper transforms the entire production that is actually better than the original song. Stream it above.

“Chained to the beat now / Feelin’ good, got good vibes / I can feel it in my feet now / Take a shot, baby, loosen up / You the star of the scene now," Lil Boat warbles with Auto-tune over a wildly catchy downtempo beat. "I went from reading magazines to being on the cover / Get up in the groove now / Let me see you move now.”  But the best part goes to his animated "I LOVE YOU KATY!" shout out.

The "Chained to the Rhythm" remix comes after Perry's live performances at the 2017 GRAMMYs and BRITs. The single is the first taste from Perry's upcoming fourth major-label album, the follow-up to 2013's Prism. It also comes after last summer's "Rise."
