Kali Uchis

Kali Uchis has the Midas touch for summer jams. Even with her earliest hits – 2014’s “Know What I Want” and 2015’s “Lottery” — the Colombian-born, Virginia-bred singer has an ear for blissful R&B instrumentals that beg to be heard poolside, drink of choice in hand. Her breakout hit, 2015’s “Ridin’ Round” is anthemic in its own right: “I know I’m some shit and I’m cool with it / You can’t tell me shit, don’t come and share your dialect / Ridin’ ’round your city like the cops now/Cause there’s no way that we’re gonna stop now.”

Her newest single, “Tyrant” carries that familiar breezy, sunny vibe, this time anchored with an island-flavored bass line. Featuring British singer Jorja Smith, the two beauties sing of a dizzying new romance, relinquishing their wills to keep that punch drunk love on high.
