After linking up at Global Citizen and teasing the track in December, Black Coffee finally unleashed his debut collaboration with Usher on Tuesday (Sept. 10), as the summer-tinged “LaLaLa” landed on streaming services.
A refreshed Usher croons about a certain love interest, while smoothly gliding over uptempo electronic production courtesy of the South African DJ. “You got the motion/ You keep me flowing let me ride the wave into the morning until the daylight/ Do it again, No,” he sings.
Beats 1 caught up with the “Get It Together” artist to find out exactly how the collaboration came to fruition. “Working with Usher was a huge honor and once again opened my mind to another side of the spectrum musically. Music truly has no boundaries,” he said. “He’s always been one of the most talented people I’ve always wanted to work with. I was in Paris meeting him. He’s one of the coolest people and people usually say that when they work with other artists, but Usher is really one of the coolest people I’ve met.”
Fans can expect Black Coffee’s next album to drop before Christmas. For now, give “LaLaLa” a listen below.
