Hear Jaden Smith and Raury’s new collab, ‘Losing Your Mind’

The two-minute track was made for Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Netflix series, The Get Down

Last night, Raury and Jaden Smith shared their contribution to the soundtrack of Baz Lurhmann’s upcoming Netflix drama, The Get DownThe track, titled “Losing Your Mind”, is a remake of CAN’s 1972 single “Vitamin C”, and is – in the words of Raury himself – all about being a “weird kid that’s fly”.

Lurhmann’s 12-episode series, which premieres on Friday, follows the birth of hip-hop in late 70s’ New York. It stars Smith as a teen graffiti artist, as well as Shameik Moore, Justice Smith and Herizen Guardiola. Unsurprisingly, given the theme, the accompanying soundtrack is set to feature a number of big names; with Miguel, Zayn, Malay, Nile Rodgers and Leon Bridges all confirmed on the tracklist. Nas and Grandmaster Flash – who both produced the series – will also be included. 

“This album is an introduction to the many musical genres and styles that can be heard in The Get Down, which is really a story of New York in the late ’70s, an incredibly fertile time of creativity amid chaos,” said Lurhmann in a statement. “While our production is a musical that embodies many classic hits, we also use contemporary sounds and techniques connecting the dots between then and now. My great privilege is to have associated with such a diverse musical community.”
