Well this is the collaboration we never knew we wanted. Until we heard it, that is. And my goodness, it is wonderful.
As unlikely and unexpected as the collaboration may sound, it couldn't work better. Glass Animals' hypnotically sexual trip-hop rhythms, coupled with Bada$$'s aggressively East Coast delivery, have met smack bang in the middle to create a precise, perfect balance. As the track progresses, it shifts from Bada$$'s trappy rapping to Dave Bayley's recognizable breathy vocals.
The end result sounds like neither act on their own. It's something new, something dripping with cool, something that'll hopefully turn into a fruitful relationship between the four-piece and the rapper.
The collaborators, who were long time fans of one another, recorded the track in one crazy 12-hour session at a New York studio. They have also created a short but unbelievably on-point hip-hop Spotify playlist -- so if you're digging the track, be sure to check this out too.
