Since releasing his debut EP in 2017, Boston-based artist Okay (k) has carved out a unique space for himself in the global hip-hop scene. His music incorporates elements of the music you love—with nods to the likes of Kid Cudi and Chance The Rapper—but it reaches far wider.
With the release of his latest single cold (w/ honey gentry), he continues to build himself as an emerging artist not quite like any other. If you’re not already familiar with this name, we strongly recommend you change that.
On his new single cold (w/ honey gentry), Boston-based artist Okay (k) creates a sprawling universe that you’ll be unable to resist getting lost within.
Throughout the new single, Okay (k) glides through an ethereal blend of hip-hop, R&B, and indie-pop to craft a sound uniquely his own. With hallucinatory production and effortless lyrical flow, cold feels simultaneously lush and sparse.
Across the track’s four-minute run-time, an immersive sonic universe is created. Once you walk into this sprawling soundscape, we guarantee you’ll never want to leave.
“The track cold is about the state of being cold, literally and also metaphorically in the sense another person makes the protagonist feel cold when they are around,” Okay (k) says of the new track.
cold is the latest in a string of consistently great released from Okay (k), and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality material. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new single above.
