If you thought Kaytranada had a firm grip on 2016, then 2017 is some serious trouble. The Canadian producer has received critical acclaim and vast recognition for his projects during this past year. His debut album, 99.9%, and his mixtape titled .001% ??? took the electronic and hip-hop world and completely redefined them. Not to mention, he dropped some pretty tight edits to Ri-Ri, Chance The Rapper, and Solange.
In the past, K has linked up with some pretty big names including Craig David, The Internet, and AlunaGeorge, but we think his most recent collaboration may take the crown. Alicia Keys and Kaytranada just joined forces to create on a track that was premiered on Swizz Beatz’s SoundCloud.
This song is downright sexy. It’s a side of Alicia Keys we haven’t seen in quite some time, and it’s refreshing to have it back. Keys doesn’t flash her vocal range too much, but her soft singing and whispers float over Kaytranda’s distinctive bass lines and tickle you in the pit of your stomach. Listen below.
