Kanye West‘s “Real Friends” song is only a few days old, but it’s already getting remix overhauls thanks to artists like Erykah Badu. The soul singer put her spin on the rap track that she calls “Trill Friends,” which dropped today (January 12).

Badu maintains the original tune’s melodic production while adding in her soothing laid-back vocal harmonies, and even borrowing lyrics from hip-hop trio Whodini’s 1984 track “Friends.”

Last November, Erykah Badu released her But You Caint Use My Phone mixtape that was inspired by Drake‘s “Hotline Bling.” And according to her Soundcloud description, “Trill Friends” will be featured on an upcoming mixtape humorously titled THIS $h!t TOO EASY.

As for Yeezy? He’s gearing up for his SWISH LP release on February 11. Get into Badu’s latest remix below.
