Ever since she released her progressive and promising debut mixtape CUT 4 ME in 2013, R&B singer/songwriter Kelela continues to impress with new material like the bass-heavy “The High” and the Bok Bok-assisted “Melba’s Call”. Her latest, “Want It”, is a collaboration with rising Chicago rapper Tink and features production courtesy of DJ Dahi.
The song, which was commissioned by Yours Truly for its Songs From Scratch series, is sensual and understated. DJ Dahi’s click-clack percussion and ambient synths provide an inviting canvas for Kelela’s soulful hooks and Tink’s laid back verses. Listen in below.
Watch a behind the scenes look at the making of the song.
