Kali shows love to Kanye and the album that inspired her.
Kali Uchis dropped off her debut album back in April that was stacked with features from Jorja Smith, Tyler, The Creator, Steve Lacy and more. The 15-track tape showcased the 23-year-old's talents and just recently she followed-up on her work with live recordings of some of her hottest tracks.
Aside from her project's favourites, Kali decided to cover a popular Kanye West track from his 808s & Heartbreak. Choosing the single "Paranoid" Kali explains just exactly why she chose to sing some old school Ye. "I think I just love this song," she said.
"I mean, I love old Kanye. This album, 808s & Heartbreak, was very inspirational to me and so I thought it would make sense to cover his song...I love all of his albums but I really love this album in particular. I'm a huge Kid Cudi fan too and so I really just love all of the musicality of it and I loved how he was, like, trying to do something different with his voice and everything in it. And the heart in it, I thought it was really special."
