Anyone who has collaborated with someone in person and on the spot can vouch for how free and comfortable the atmosphere can be. Moreso, when done organically and with partners who understand your vision, the product is that much better. This was clearly the scenario for Chet Faker & GoldLink during the making of “On You.”
Put together as part of Yours Truly & adidas originals’ Songs From Scratch series, this unexpected collaboration between the Australian electronic artist and elusive DMV rapper is a delightfully dreary collaboration, which finds the two ironically crooning one female. Not quite like Usher and Kels, but moreso a white Cee-Lo and rapping Prince. Sounds good, right? Well, it is.
Watch the making of this fresh collaboration below and check out some of the other Songs From Scratch collaborations, with artists like Chance The Rapper, Kelela, Tink, Jeremih, Shlohmo, Nosaj Thing, Danny Brown and Araabmuzik all contributing.
