It's been a few months since Kaytranada and Aminé first announced their joint project, Kaytraminé. The pair have spent that time generating excitement among fans by teasing their highly anticipated self-titled album. Fans have been eagerly anticipating this release, and in April, they were finally given a preview with the duo's first single under their new moniker. The track was called "4EVA," and it featured none other than the iconic Pharrell Williams. Building on the anticipation, Kaytranada further piqued interest in the project during the initial weekend of Coachella, where he brought out Aminé to perform.
Recently, Kaytraminé released the artwork for the album. It exudes a warm and summery vibe, showing the duo relaxing on vibrant pink beach chairs. Aminé raises his champagne glass towards the camera, while Kaytranada is seen reclining, enjoying a joint. On the reverse side of the album, a broader perspective reveals more chairs and individuals in the surrounding area. It is there that they unveiled the tracklist, indicating the exciting features. Alongside the previously released track featuring Pharrell, fans noted the presence of collaborations with artists such as Snoop Dogg and Freddie Gibbs. Adding to the anticipation, Kaytranada and Aminé recently released another track called "Rebuke." Now, fans can finally enjoy the album in full.
Kaytraminé Is A Match Made In Heaven
KAYTRAMINÉ, the album, is full of certified summer bangers. Not only is it chock-full of big features like Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams, it also has some surprisingly hard tracks. It's an album that makes it difficult to pick a standout because every track has merit and can stand on its own. However, one track that stands out lyrically is "Westside."
The track displays the antithesis to a typical rap bravado in a not-so-typical way. The wordplay feels fresh and clever, and Aminé's flow is chill but biting. "This drink got me moving my jaw like I'm Drew / Barry more drinks in my stomach a pool," Aminé raps. "Lord kill my ego, please take off the cool / I do not want to be compared to these fools." The impressive wordplay alone is enough to check out the album. Have you listened to KAYTRAMINÉ yet? Sound off in the comments below.
