Kali Uchis – “Only Girl” (Feat. Vince Staples & Steve Lacy) (Prod. Kaytranada)
Kali Uchis is a Colombian-born, Los Angeles-based singer who’s worked with people like Tyler, The Creator in the past; she was featured on Tyler’s 2015 tracks “Yellow” and “Perfect.” She’s got a new album coming sometime soon, and her new single “Only Girl” features contributions from a very cool cadre of musicians. Steve Lacy, of the Odd Future-affiliated narco-soul group the Internet, sings the song’s hook, and Vince Staples stops by for a quick verse, while the Montreal beatmaker Kaytranada produces. In its construction, this is almost like a woozy, way-out version of, say, a Katy Perry single. Consider it an alternate-reality pop hit, and listen to it below.
Uchis is working on her official debut right now.
