Converse is back in combining all-star musicians on one track, this time with “Warrior.” Kimbra, who is also featured in the Youtube chart-topping music video “Somebody That I Used to Know,” handles most of the vocal weight. She is joined by Mark Foster of Foster the People, and world-class DJ A-Trak of Fool’s Gold Records and Duck Sauce.
The video is actually quite funny, involving Mark Foster and A-Trak getting forced into some kind of underground Lucha Libre wrestling tournament. Kimbra, backed by a mariachi band, sings along as the sort of Princes Leia to the Lucha Libre’s Jabba the Hutt. That analogy will make more sense after watching the video.
And below, watch the extended cut of Converse’s other notable all-star track, “Do Ya Thing.” This version features Andre 3000 of Outkast proclaiming himself to be “the shit,” several times over. I’m inclined to believe him. That verse starts at 4:23.
