Kali Uchis has to be one of the more promising female artists doing well right now. For her latest, she reveals “Tyrant,” the first new single from her upcoming debut album. The track was premiered on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 show.
From her feature on Daniel Caesar‘s song “Get You” to British crooner Jorja Smith‘s assistance on “Tyrant,” Kali lets her unique-but-still very angelic vocals shine. On this track, however, she brings out her Columbian roots, setting the tone for Jorja to add her own flavor to the record.
“A post-apocalyptic love song,” she said about the song in a press release. “Wanting to stay in the haze of puppy love forever and never face the power struggles, because that’s your only real escape from the cold realities of life.”
While she was also recently featured on Gorillaz‘s fourth studio album Humanz, “Tyrant” is her first new solo material since 2016’s “Only Girl.” Her debut studio album is expected to arrive later this year. For now, take in the track below.
