Keyon Harrold continues on the path to greatness. You’ve seen him in supporting roles for legends like D’Angelo, Jay Z and yes, even the late Miles Davis. But as we creep closer to the release of his next studio album, Harrold has treated us to a smoldering new collaboration with Bilal and Big K.R.I.T.  “Stay This Way” finds Bilal handling a haunting hook, while Harrold laces the cut with flutters and K.R.I.T. dishes lovelorn romance raps. It’s the kind of track that could easily score your next head-0ver-heals moment or your drunken late-night reminiscences. Regardless of how you apply it, “Stay This Way” is precisely the soul-heavy jazz we’r ready for in 2017 and beyond.

Hear the latest from Keyon Harrold down below. You can catch him live and direct for the first shows in his residency NYC’s Blue Note tomorrow and Wednesday night. He’ll perform two sets per, and is slated to be joined by both Bilal and Big K.R.I.T..
