RnB's fastest-rising star Kelela links up with Timbaland-approved fellow young gun Tink for this collaboration. Kelela came up hard over the past year, with her 'Cut 4 Me' mixtape (also featuring FOR 2014 performer Bok Bok) finding shine across the four corners of the globe. Her icy vocals, paired with atmospheric, often-times skittery beats supplied by a vast Rolodex of Fade-To-Mind-affiliated producers (Kingdom, Jam City, Nguzunguzu), have won critical acclaim, and her streetwise style smarts have landed her pages of editorial in fashion bibles Dazed, i-D, Elle, V, the New York Times, and Oyster.
'Want It', produced as part of the Yours Truly 'Songs From Scratch' series, showcases that slinky nighttime voice of Kelela's, which will be on display when she performs at FOR Festival this year. For more info, and to buy tickets, head to for-festival.com.
