Kaytranada and Aminé have partnered as KAYTRAMINÉ for an upcoming self-titled album. “4EVA” featuring Pharrell Williams is the first single from the project that has roots in 2013. Aminé did a bootleg remix of Kaytranada’s “At All” calling his version “Not At All” that year. Kaytranada heard the remix and reached out to Aminé to offer official music for him to use. Their meeting in 2013 resulted in Kaytranada producing three songs on Aminé’s 2015 mixtape Calling Brio. Fans had suggested for years that they collaborate on a full-length project and they agreed. Pharrell added some of his production skills and vocals to the hip-hop, house and Caribbean rhythms of “4EVA.” The Afro-diasporic beat mashup also reeks of Afrobeats and conveys warmth with gliding synths. Listen to the festive vibe of “4EVA” from the album that officially drops on May 12th.
