By Annie Reuter
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 last 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.
