The rapper recently released his latest song, titled “Stranger Things,” in which he samples the theme song heard round the world. Khalifa takes bits of the eerie synth-driven, ’80s-inspired track created by Austin band Survive and turns it into a hip-hop beat featuring rapper J.R. Donato.

Throughout the track, Khalifa makes use of song’s namesake and repeatedly uses the word “stranger” — like a lot. “It’s like I’m talking to a stranger/ Now everybody getting stranger,” Khalifa sings. “They’re stranger/ I think I’m in danger, gotta wake my game up/ Gotta stay the same, watching everybody change/ Ah now they’re getting stranger.” How inspired.
