Melt Away w/ Jhené Aiko & Gallant's Adrian Younge-Produced Collabo, "Skipping Stones"
Jhené Aiko and Gallant may seem like they’re worlds apart, but it only takes one collaborative effort to see and hear just how close they are. Today, precisely that sort of linkage took place with the release of their joint single “Skipping Stones,” produced by the analog abbot, Adrian Younge and Stint (who produced Gallant’s breakout single “Weight In Gold.”) And truth be told, it’s a match made in modern r&b heaven, with Aiko’s whispery vox and Gallant’s soaring howl playing perfectly off one another as Younge’s crisp and cool arrangement sweeps you up into its rhodes-y groove.
It’s always a nice a cap on the day when two of r&b’s brightest stars align to bring us the vibes. So melt away with Jhené Aiko and Gallant’s gorgeous new collaboration below and if you’re looking to catch Aiko’s whispers live and direct, refer to the list of her forthcoming tour dates just under the player. Here’s hoping the duo cross paths once more.
