Kali Uchis’ “Only Girl” featuring Vince Staples and The Internet’s Steve Lacy debuts today.
“This was a lot of fun to make,” Uchis says of the track. “I don’t collab often, but the hook popped into my head as soon as I heard Kaytranada’s beat and I knew Steve was perfect for it. Vince is one of my favorite rappers so I was just happy he was down to jump on it.”
Kali Uchis is currently in the studio finishing her debut album, following a whirlwind 2015 that found her touring North America with Leon Bridges, releasing her critically-acclaimed project Por Vida, starring in the Nick Knight-directed acoustic video for her song “Loner,” directing videos for “Ridin Round,” “Loner” and “Rush,” starring in a campaign for British designer Sophia Webster and much more.
Twenty-three-year-old Uchis was born in Pereira, Colombia, raised in Alexandria, VA and is now based in Los Angeles, CA. Uchis has released two much-lauded projects, 2013’s Drunken Babble and Por Vida, featuring production from Diplo, Tyler, The Creator, Kaytranada, BADBADNOTGOOD and more. Further collaborations include work with Major Lazer, Snoop Dogg, Tory Lanez, Tyler, The Creator and more.
