Tink is a Chicago R&B singer who released her mixtape Winter’s Diary more than a year ago. Since then, that tape has caught on as an under-the-radar favorite among online R&B enthusiasts. (They’re out here; look around on Twitter.) And one of those enthusiasts is Tom Krell, who’s now thrown his own pleading, lovestruck verse on the Winter’s Diary track “Can I.” Given how completely Krell has created his own Xanax-heavy soundworld, it’s a bit of a trip to hear him adding his lo-fi murk to an R&B song that’s otherwise pretty straightforward and catchy. Listen below.
