KAYTRANADA’s talent is the gift that keeps on giving. This week, the talented producer revealed a three-pack EP titled Intimidated including “Intimidated” featuring H.E.R., “Be Careful” featuring Thundercat, and “$payforhaiti” featuring Mach-Hommy to close his year out strong. On the title and intro track, H.E.R. angelically rides the blissful beat courtesy of KAYTRANADA:
Open water, just what you wanted (Just what you wanted) so don’t leave me drownin’/ Don’t let me, down don’t, don’t hold it back like that just pull me closer, baby/ Hold on, love, let’s make the most of this before it’s over, over
Don’t, time, don’t wanna waste the feel, like we can make it real/ Don’t run away when you could be lovin’ me/ Signs, too busy readin’ minds hopin’ you made it here/ Don’t overthink when you could be lovin’ me/ (Babe, when you could be lovin’ me) (Babe, when you could be lov-)
Back in December, he revealed a short film for his collaboration with Lucky Daye titled “Look Easy,” which takes place in Tokyo and stars artist-actress Luli Shioi. In addition to “Look Easy,” 2020 has also seen KAYTRANADA liberate the loose singles “Dysfunctional” with VanJess, combined talents with J.I.D for “JIDtranada (Freestyle),” and “The Recipe” with Aluna and Rema. Prior to that, he released his sophomore LP Bubba, which saw 17 cuts and assists from Pharrell Williams, Tinashe, Teedra Moses, GoldLink, Estelle, Masego, Kali Uchis, SiR, and more. Subsequently, he also blessed his fans with an instrumental only version of Bubba in September.
