I’m a little behind on this one, but that’s what happens when school piles up and you procrastinate as well as I do. I stumbled upon this song yesterday and have honestly listened it to maybe 30 times already. Anything Kaytranada produces is almost guaranteed to be a hit, and “Only Girl” is no exception.
On top of that this song as an all-star level of talent to help it out. Kali Uchis has a daydreamy voice that skips along over the beat. Vince Staples delivers a snappy verse, flowing in and out over the smooth bass and drums that you don’t hear him rapping over often. But the highlight of the song is the chorus. Steve Lacy from R&B group The Internet brings such a catchy chorus it’s tough not to have it stuck in your head and waiting for it again while the verse plays. If you’ve heard The Internet you know he is more of a backup singer but hearing the way he takes over a song is leaving me needing more from him.
Check the song below and let me know what you think.
