Tyler, the Creator, Kali Uchis, Bootsy Collins, & BadBadNotGood join forces on smooth new track

This post was originally published on this site

Colombian-born R&B singer-songwriter Kali Uchis has tapped Tyler, the Creator, funk maestro Bootsy Collins, and eclectic jazz outfit BadBadNotGood for her diversified new song, “After the Storm.”

Uchis is preparing to release her debut album this spring via Interscope/Virgin Records, of which this track will be a part of. “After the Storm” is not the first time Uchis and Tyler have worked together on a track, but its funky-melodrama is significantly more prominent than past collaborations “Aunt Wang Syrup Theme Song” or “PERFECT.” “If you need a hero / Just look in the mirror,” Kali sings, while Bootsy ad-libs for affective touch.

“We can find solace in the fact that we have to go through the bad stuff to truly get to the good,” Uchis said of “After the Storm” in a press statement. “Just because you’re losing at the moment doesn’t mean you’ve lost yet. The storm may be scary now but it’s how your flowers bloom later, and paradise is just beyond the rainbow.”
