KAYTRANADA Wants to Start His Own TikTok Challenge with “Caution”

The Montreal producer premiered “Caution” on TikTok as part of the platform’s Black History Month celebration.

After taking some time away from solo releases, KAYTRANADA appears to be back in a standalone mood.

Yesterday, the Montreal producer premiered the new track, “Caution,” on TikTok, taking part in the platform’s Black History Month celebration with an infectious and challenge-friendly instrumental. “Caution” joins Leon Bridges‘ commissioned cover of Pastor T.L. Barrett and The Youth for Christ Choir’s 1971 gospel epic, “Like a Ship,” in launching the TikTok campaign. But unlike Bridges’ contribution, the producer’s submission has been ported to DSPs for broader, non-TikTok, rotations.

The track arrives as a placeholder for the producer’s next project. In late 2019, KAYTRANADA released his sophomore studio album, BUBBA, as his major-label debut with RCA. Last year, the producer stripped the album of all vocal treatments, releasing an instrumental version that was quickly absorbed into the mash-up multiverse. And never one to leave the remix game, he also shared a hypnotic edit of Sade’s classic “Love is Stronger Than Pride,” as a loosie on his Soundcloud page.

But the producer’s collaborative streak is still alive and well. He supplied his little brother, Lou Phelps, with a grip of heat for the rapper’s 2020 EP, EXTRA EXTRA!, turned in an official remix of Dua Lipa’s “Don’t Start Now” and linked with Lucky Daye on the one-off single “Look Easy.”

Hear KAYTRANADA’s latest song below and hold tight for his next transmission.
