Yaeji’s been coming up for a minute now, but she hasn’t released a whole lot this year so far. That may be about to change—the DJ/producer just dropped a hot remix of Charli XCX’s “Focus.”

Yes, it may be Charli stamping her name all over the track, but the cut is as much Yaeji’s as it is the pop star’s.
