Kali Uchis is the ‘Only Girl’ you need to hear right now
At only 22 years of age, KALI UCHIS is well on her way to producing her second album, teasing us with the release of her new single, ‘Only Girl’, featuring artists Steve Lacy and Vince Staples.
After the delivery of her self produced mixtape, Babble, in 2012, the likes of artists such as Snoop Dogg, Diplo, Tyler, The Creator and several other major producers found interest in Uchis and her work. This lead to the release of her debut album, Por Vida in February, 2015, in which she collaborated with several of these artists on, as well as the announcement of her first tour with Leon Bridges last October.
The Columbian pop singer/songwriter/producer/videographer is one talented girl and with the release of ‘One Girl’, (produced by Kaytranada) you can tell the hard work she puts into her music is paying off.
Take a listen to the Uchis‘s unique vocals, those ’60s influenced electronic and bass sounds (oh and those harmonies in that rap section) and feel those funky vibes. It’s a great song, and an easy listen for a slow Sunday afternoon at home.
