Gallant Hooks Up With Saba For His New Version of "Bourbon"
Back in February, R&B singer Gallant appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk series.It was a pretty special performance. One that got even better when, seemingly out of nowhere, Chicago rapper Saba popped up and rapped a monster verse. Saba performed on Gallant’s “Bourbon,” which is one of the standout tracks off the singer’s debut album Ology.
Now that version of “Bourbon” is getting an official push. The new version of the song, which is produced by Lophiile, is a little more upbeat and a little grander.
The just-released video for the song is stylish, featuring sharp shots and cuts of Gallant and Saba in a city.
The Fader premiered the video. And they were able to get some quotes from Gallant and Saba about how the video came about.
Saba told the Fader:
“When Gallant reached out about remixing ‘Bourbon,’ we only had a few days to put it together before performing for the first time on NPR’s Tiny Desk…The performance got such a great response from the fans that we had to do an official release, so I caught a flight out to L.A. where we linked up to shoot the visual, and we’re excited to share it today.”
