Great kid, don't get cocky!

It may have, understandably, escaped your attention but, over the Christmas period, a small, low-budget, movie was released into a limited selection of UK and US cinemas entitled Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an English-language remake of the French art house film "le force l'awaken" which roughly translates as "the printing of money".

Anyway, the long awaited Chinese release finally arrived earlier this month and to give it that extra publicity push it so desperately needs, Chinese popstar LuHan was given the task of composing the official Star Wars affiliated banger.

Yep.

And, as the video shows, it fits very much into the WTF? genre of modern pop.

See.

Tonight I’m gonna rock this place, shake it to the ground now/Wanna feel that 808, make my move at the sound of beat.

Still, better dialogue than in the prequels, am I right?

The beat feels like a synthed-up imperial march and is actually quite fun, even if the connection to the film is somewhat questionable. But hey, Batman Forever had "Kiss From A Rose" in the soundtrack - anything is acceptable.

Watch the masterpiece of a video below:

The beat is strong with this one.
