Vince Staples and Flume got together with Kučka, Vera Blue, and Ngaiire to cover Ghost Town DJ's' 1996 hit, "My Boo," for the latest episode of Triple J's "Like a Version" series.

The track finds Flume changing up the arrangement, but it's Staples raps that really take the whole thing to another level. "Would you mind moving closer/Let me look into your eyes/ This is a sight for the ages/Got me anxious/So punch drunk right now," he raps for his first verse with eyes closed.

The rapper's second verse gets even more intimate as he continues to spit about trying to get that special person back. "I can't write my wrongs/So I just write my songs/Won't you dance with me to help escape my misery/My two left feet I'm pacing/Where you left me I'm waiting/Send me your directions for my final destination."

This isn't the first time these artists have gotten together to collaborate. Staples, Flume, and Kučka previously worked on the latter's Skin standout, "Smoke & Retribution." Kučka and Flume have also linked up before for the Australian producer's other Skin track, "Numb & Getting Colder."

Fans will have the opportunity to see a lot more of Staples in 2017 when the rapper heads out on his first major headlining North American tour. His recently announced Life Aquatic Tour kicks off in February in San Diego and will have him on the road performing through April.
