GoldLink Songs

    New Black
    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.

    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.
  • Unique
    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.
  • Spectrum
    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. 
  • Movin' On
    Movin' On
    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. 
  • Aquafina
    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. 
  • Compromise
    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
    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.
  • Vroom
    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".
  • Velho
    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.
  • On You
    On You
    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)
    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.
  • Funeral
    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.
  • Sober Thoughts
    Sober Thoughts
    The mysterious GoldLink returns today with a new cut, "Sober Thoughts", featuring production from Montreal native Kaytranada. After dropping off the Sango-produced "Wassup" a few weeks back, GoldLink keeps the weird vibes and sing-song raps going on "Sober Thoughts."
  • Wassup
    Sango is a talented producer who has been on the rise for a minute, first remixing tracks from artists like The Weeknd and later stepping out more so as a production artist. Since that time, he's been able to connect with some dope artists such as JMSN on "Affection". 
    Stream and/or download CNTRL, a choice selection from emerging DMV artist and Squaaash Club member GoldLink's new 9-track project The God Complex, which is now available in our mixtape section. Let us know what you think, folks.
  • Planet Paradise
    Planet Paradise
    The reason why GoldLink is rising through the ranks amongst better promoted artists just through his soundcloud account is because of drops like this. Enter "Planet Paradise," a song with skyrocketing viral attention. The cut starts with a sample from A Tribe Called Quest until the bold direction from the acclaimed Louie Lastic kicks in, and the DMV native starts dropping straight fire, with some impressive rapid delivery.
