    Kaytranada ft. Craig David - “Got It Good”

    When I was first introduced to Kaytranada almost four years ago, he was gaining popularity and catching my own attention for his impressive ability to flip well-known, previously down-tempo records into party starting remixes. Years later he’s grown into an artist of his own who is not only able to create rhythms that speak for themselves, but he now has this incredible talent to construct production that brings out the best in other artists. His debut album 99.9% is the combining result of all of this.

    Though 99.9% is brilliant from start to finish, one of the immediate standouts is “Got It Good,” a collaboration with Craig David. There are many times when the names on a collaboration look better on paper, or even too good to be true. However, “Got It Good” is far from that. The smooth production quickly transitions into a steady bounce layered under a catchy hook—resulting in an undeniable record. David’s name has been buzzing once again after a hiatus that felt much too long, and hearing him on this track makes me anxious to hear more from him soon. This was a collaboration I didn’t know I needed but I’m so grateful that it now exists.—Adrienne Black
