Produced by KAYTRANADA, the track is the first release following GoldLink’s critically acclaimed album Diaspora. Released in June 2019, the album was recognized by Pitchfork as “the best music of his career” while Highsnobiety stated “GoldLink can conceive of and execute his ideas better than most anyone in hip-hop today.”

After receiving critical acclaim, the album made several Best Albums of The Year lists including Complex, UpRoxx, Hot New Hip Hop and more. Standout track “Zulu Screams” ft. Maleek Berry and Bibi Bourelly also made The New York Times “54 Best Songs of 2019” list calling it “A supremely catchy international collaboration.”

More about Goldlink:

Where the intersections of the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) collide, GoldLink is a direct product. Washington, D.C., and the broader DMV area, have long been treated like a musical Rubik’s cube. There are bursting, Technicolor patches of musical brilliance, but the component parts never line up in a way that made sense to those on the outside. GoldLink is not interested in spelling out all the nuances of his hometown; what he does aim to do is synthesize his environment’s litany of influences and inspirations into something unique, singular, and all together his own.

With his debut studio album At What Cost (Squaaash Club/RCA)–helmed by the monstrous single “Crew”–released in March 2017, he’s done just that. By merging the sensibilities of go-go with the African diaspora, he’s done what hip-hop has done from its inception: repurpose what’s available into something magical.

The success of At What Cost and now 4x Platinum single “Crew” saw GoldLink achieve a number of career firsts in the past few months — from his Grammy nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration to the iHeartMedia Music Awards nomination for Best New Hip-Hop Artist to his BET Awards nomination for Best New Artist.
