Earlier today, Kranium released "Can't Give A Fuck," but that wasn't enough: he also connected with Shaggy for a similarly-optimistic collaboration titled “It’s Alright.” This is a flirtatious track that fuses a classic reggae beat—played on a synth—with a blurting bass backbone appropriate for the age of DJ Mustard. The two singers make a compelling duo: there’s an appealing contrast between Kranium’s flexible, lightweight presence and Shaggy’s thicker, earthbound vocal.
