"Tyrant" is the first teaser to Uchis' forthcoming debut album and upon release, hit Spotify viral charts worldwide. Her airy, dreamlike vocals carry the weight of the song's story and intermix with emerging British artist, Jorja Smith's soothing voice.
Uchis' debut EP, Por Vida released in 2015, nabbed universal acclaim from the likes of the New York Times, Pitchfork and Guardian. She has since collaborated with major artists including Diplo, Tyler the Creator, Kaytranada and, of course, Gorillaz -- she appears on two tracks from their new album, Humanz.
With a highly anticipated album coming later this year, expect to hear much more from Kali Uchis in the coming months.
