As music fans prepare for a warm season filled with festivals and weekly day parties, artists are filling up the month of June with perfect tracks to start the summer. After GoldLink made waves with his Grammy-nominated single “Crew” in late 2016, the DC rapper is back to fulfill all dance floor needs on his latest single, “U Say.”
GoldLink teams up with Tyler, The Creator and Jay Prince as the three float effortlessly on the bossa nova-inspired production. The sweet instrumentation on “U Say” makes for a perfect dance track filled with body rolls, shoulder shimmies, and two-stepping. As GoldLink gears up to release his sophomore album Diaspora on June 12 and joins Tyler, The Creator on the IGOR Tour, it’s safe to say the rapper is ready to take over the summer.
If chill vibes are the wave all summer long, then put GoldLink’s “U Say” in the rotation and check out this week’s pertinent reading material:
