The Chemical Brothers and Miguel join forces for "This Is Not A Game".

The upcoming soundtrack for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1 has been curated by New Zealand pop sensation Lorde, and as a result, the OST is full of unconventional collaborations between, rap, R&B, electronic, and left-field pop artists. Today, we get a collaboration between veteran UK big beat duo The Chemical Brothers and R&B big wig Miguel.

Not only does "This Is Not A Game" find the Chem Bros leaning into a decidedly hip hop direction (not far off from much of the EDM Trap that's currently more popular than ever), but has Miguel taking the role of a rapper. Aside from name-dropping Gucci Mane, the singer enunciates his lines with the cadence of New Atlanta's best. Lorde guests with her more reserved take on a "Turn Down For What"-style vocal drop.

Quotable Lyrics:
Wait, play the game to change the game
Word to Gucci, that's my hitta
Your wave is living in the moment, huh?
My wave is living for forever
