Right before touching the stage at Coachella, FKJ drops some new heat with Col3trane. The French multi-instrumentalist will be taking his one-man show to Coachella at 3:15 p.m. on today (April 13) in the midst of his sold-out North American tour. FKJ enlists Col3trane for some assistance on the track. In a statement, he explained that he had been longing to collaborate with Col3trane and the two finally linked up in October.
"I already had a melody in my head for it, but what he came up with outdid what I had originally imagined," FKJ says. "He added words in the right spots. It also has that dancehall vibe that I love. When I was a teenager, I listened to a lot of dancehall and this beat is definitely an inspiration from it. I originally made the beat while on tour, just me on my laptop, very quickly and with a clear mind. Once Col3 sent over his vocals, I went back to the studio and worked on it. I haven't produced for many voices yet, but I quickly realized that this is something that I love to do. I'm free to expand into different genres that people don't expect from me."
Feels bad to go away, I just wish I would stay
But all the times I stayed behind on purpose
It felt like wasted times but never worthless
