Tyler, the Creator & Kali Uchis Duet Over Musty Soul on the “Aunt Wang Syrup Theme Song”

Listen to the first collaboration from Tyler and Colombian singer Kali Uchis

July 16, 2014


In our F92 GEN F profile of Colombian singer Kali Uchis, we mentioned her working on music in L.A. with Tyler, the Creator. Today, we stumbled upon the first leak from those sessions: Tyler's "Aunt Wang Syrup Theme Song," featuring the rapper tip-toeing through singing riffs and harmonies from Kali throughout. It's a woozy 3/4 ballad about spreading butter and syrup on waffles, with altered pitches and a distorted grain that sounds like digging for vinyl rips on YouTube. But Kali's alto tears through: an imperfect but interesting voice that upends old soul music's perfectionism, like a sweet sugary breakfast cereal you know will rot your teeth. Tyler will be launching his Golf Wang x Vans collaboration along with exclusive tees and a pop-up skatepark this Friday at the Pemberton Music Festival in Canada.
