See I Miss Pt. 2
GoldLink Feat. Marsha Ambrosius
GoldLink hasn't put out too much since his impressive debut album, And After That, We Didn't Talk, which was released exactly one year ago. Tonight, he has decided to celebrate the anniversary by sharing a new single, "See I Miss Pt. 2," which is the sequel to the final track on And After That, We Didn't Talk. The new song features Marsha Ambrosius, the British R&B singer who guested on T.I.'s Dr. Dre-produced "Dope" earlier this year.
Isaiah Rashad & GoldLink Feat. Preston Harris
Both Isaiah Rashad and Goldlink have recently released some solo material, but today they come together on the equal-billing single "Untitled." Dropped on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show, we don't have much context for the single, but judging by the minimal description on the SoundCloud page, this is just a one-off "4r da fans..."
GoldLink Feat. April George
"My fans brought me to my first European headline tour ever... wanted to give you something back." GoldLink is in his feelings over the love he's been getting since the release of his 2015 album, And After That, We Didn't Talk. He's now touring the world off teh strength of the material, and he's grateful for the opportunity, sharing some new music to thanks his following for the support.
Fall In Love
GoldLink Feat. Ciscero
Following up last month’s video for “Spectrum,” Goldlink decides to return to the scene today by sharing a new single via Apple Music called “Fall In Love” featuring Cisero.
"I was 18, angry, and woke up everyday ready to die for wuteva , and now here I am at 23 years old. Shits wild," GoldLink writes on SoundCloud, accompanied with his a new record released on his 23rd birthday.
Rewind (GoldLink Remix)
Kelela Feat. GoldLink
Kelela's "Rewind" is a dark, slow-burning R&B jam, but on a new remix from GoldLink, it's reimagined as a high-octane garage record. As well as switching up the instrumental, GoldLink also adds a verse to the record, and naturally, he fits right into the mix. "We know Kelela is pretty happy with it, describing the remix as "one of the smartest" remixes she's heard in a long time. You can hear her rave about the new version, as well as give an update on her upcoming full-length album following the track, as she talks to BBC1's Annie Mac.
Chaz French Feat. GoldLink
Chaz French is getting ready to drop his mixtape These Things Take Time on Friday, December 11. Before he does that, he liberates one last track, a sensual jam called "Ready" that features his fellow DMV spitter Goldlink. Frequent Chaz collaborator Super Miles produced the beat, which gives off some chill Odesza vibes. Goldlink and Chaz have somewhat divergent styles on the mic, both are holding it down for the DMV (scope the video below).
GoldLink is making sure that we keep his debut album on our minds, dropping leak after leak, each as consistent as the last. Yesterday we heard the record "Dark Skinned Women," as premiered by BBC 1 Radio with Annie Mac. He's also moved up the release date of his album, so it definitely seems like he's anxious to get And After That, We Didn’t Talk out sooner rather than later.
Dark Skinned Women
Last week GoldLink dropped off some new material with Anderson .Paak, the Louie Lastic-produced "Unique." Not only a song title, the word 'unique' sums up just about everything GoldLink does. The XXL Freshmen has quickly solidified his spot in the rap game, with a quirky flow and equally quirky-yet-danceable production. His latest album leak, dedicated to "Dark Skinned Woman," puts both those elements on display.
GoldLink Feat. Anderson .Paak
A DMV vet, Wale, was chilling with the region's most promising youngster, GoldLink, in the studio, and Folarin was feeling the vibes so much that he decided to premiere GoldLink's latest track on his own Twitter. "Unique" follows last month's "Spectrum," and it's another piece of chilled grooviness from GoldLink and his main producer, Louie Lastic.
GoldLink has blessed us with a new single, "Spectrum," his first since "Movin' On," which was released at the end of August. With the new single comes the announcement of GoldLink's imminent debut album, And After That, We Didn't Talk.
GoldLink Feat. Louie Lastic
GoldLink just scored an opening spot on Mac Miller's upcoming "GO:OD AM" tour, and today, he's shared a new freebie to celebrate. "Movin' On" features his frequent collaborator Louie Lastic, who has possibly the best "Remember The Titans"-inspired name possible. The track samples Tupac's classic summer anthem "I Get Around," which is given an update via the glitchy, electro-inspired production that GoldLink usually favors. Blending Zapp-style vocoder with jerky percussion, Lastic crafts a funky, upbeat track that could go off at any dance party.
Falcons Feat. GoldLink & Chaz French
Fool's Gold-signed producer Falcons hails from L.A., but on his latest track "Aquafina," he ventures out to the DMV to nab Goldlink and Chaz French for a pair of great verses.
Christian Rich Feat. GoldLink, Sinead Harnett & Secaina Hudson
Born in Chicago, raised in Nigeria, and currently based in L.A., production duo (and twin brothers) Christian Rich, have been popping up everywhere recently. Most recently, they supplied the punishing beat for Vince Staples' "Senorita," but they've also worked on Drake's "Pound Cake," Childish Gambino's "I.Crawl," and Earl Sweatshirt's "Knight".
Dance On Me
It's been a while since we've heard new material from Washington DC's Goldlink (he dropped "Vroom" in February), but as is en vogue for artists selected as XXL Freshmen, he quickly follows up his appearance on the cover with new music. This one's called "Dance On Me," and it was produced by Milo Mills and co-produced by Hasta.
GoldLink & Falcons
GoldLink hasn't dropped new music in a minute, but he did make headlines recently when we learned he was working with famed hip-hop producer Rick Rubin on a full project. The DMV native first made waves in the rap game/blogosphere with his debut project The God Complex, which put his unique dance-rap style on display. Staying in that lane, GoldLink connected with L.A.-based producers Falcons for "Vroom".
Last we heard from GoldLink he popped up with Chet Faker mid-summer for "On You." The New York-based rapper has been markedly low-key since dropping his debut The God Complex, but returns again today with a new contribution to a compilation mixtape helmed by streetwear brand Stussy and Soulection.
GoldLink Feat. Chet Faker
Yet another outstanding collaboration put together by the on-going Songs From Scratch series courtesy of yours truly & adidas. Following up two previous collabos involving Chicago singer/rapper Tink (one with DJ Dahi, "M.E.N." and one with Kelela "Want It"), we get a collaboration involving the buzzing rapper GoldLink and electronic artist Chet Faker, "On You."
Ay Ay (aywy. & Fortune Remix)
GoldLink changes up the production on "Ay Ay" for the aywy. & Fortune remix which dropped today. While there are still hints of the original bouncy Fingalick production, it's been given a Brazilian flavor in FIFA World Cup spirit.
The Celestics Feat. GoldLink
Earlier today, we introduced you to The Celestics, an emerging duo out of Montréal, Québec consisting of producer / DJ Kaytranada and emcee Louie P, AKA brothers Kevin and Louis-Philippe Celestin.
