Get 'Glowed Up' With Kaytranada and Anderson .Paak
Seemingly the music gods heard our prayers and have blessed us with this beautiful collaboration between two of our absolute favorite artists at the moment. Taking a low-key approach with a funny, tongue-in-cheek video that will probably leave you scratching your head if you tried to analyze it, ‘Glowed Up’ is sure to be a hit at smoke sessions all summer.
The track is classic Kaytranda, laid-back vibes that puts the focus on the drums and bass with minimal synth work, giving Anderson .Paak plenty of room to shine. Speaking of Paak, is there anything he can’t do?? He just got done melting our faces at SXSW, released a stellar new album in January, featured on the new Snakehips track, and now this? He doesn’t seem to know how to take a break, and for that we are eternally grateful.
The track takes a left turn about halfway through with Kaytranda switching up the beat and lets the beautiful cinematography of Bo Mirosseni take over. Floating on a mattress in an overflowing pool underneath neon fluorescent lights while the viewer watches from inside a closing fridge (seriously, don’t try to analyze it), the video ends with a subtle hook from Anderson that will probably get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Kaytranada’s new album 99.9% is due out May 6th, and if this video is any indication it is going to be heavily in our rotation.
