Millions of women around the world marched for freedom last weekend. Today, Ducky and Jessica Audiffred celebrate their musical formidability with “What’s Good,” a playful yet powerful collaboration that’s as aggressive and trappy as it is downright adorable.
“I was really thrilled to work on a project with Ducky because, to me, she is one of the few girls out there with great style and a fresh point of view,” Audiffred says in an emailed statement. “We understood each other right away and we actually had a lot of fun throughout the process, from the very beginning when deciding on the direction of the genre to the very end when trying to figure out the name of the track. It was the ideal collaboration.”
Pitched-up vocals, finger snaps, and 808 rhythms lure the listener to the dance floor, “and then it goes” mad noisy on the drop. You wouldn’t guess it, but “What’s Good” actually started as eight bars of prog house Ducky sent Audiffred on a whim.
“I’ve been a fan of Jess since her NEST mini mix, and I was really excited to work with her,” Ducky says in an emailed statement. “The whole vibe was fun and effortless from start to finish. We were stoked on each others ideas and the music just flowed.”
“What’s Good” serves as the lead single from Main Course’s Snacks Vol. 17 compilation, out in full Friday, Jan. 27 with pre-order online. You can listen to “What’s Good” below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
