Kali Uchis is back with a sensual reggaeton bop.


Kali Uchis is that special talent that sounds natural next to any artist, whether it's funk legend Bootsy Collins or UK songstress Jorja Smith.

She's always wore her Colombian heritage proudly on her sleeve and has experimented with dembow rhythms in the past to great effect. 

The singer returns with "La Luz," a bilingual banger that slows down reggaeton's thumping dembow drums alongside Puerto Rican singer Jhay Cortez.

The minimal twinkling beat comes courtesy of Latin trap super producer Tainy, who is also responsible for Rosalía & Travis Scott's "TKN" and Cardi B, J Balvin & Bad Bunny's "I Like It".

Kali's sensual whisper glides over the beat as she effortlessly switches between English and Spanish. It's with minimal production like this that the texture of her voice shines, reminding you just how beautiful her melodies are.

Check out "La Luz" below, which is out now on all streaming platforms.

Quotable Lyrics

Que tú eres criminal
Every misdemeanor and felony
Just like baby blue and pretty pink
Wе go together, don't even have to think
Estás en mi mente, tú siempre presente
Me pones caliente y es evidente
Que cuando pasan las horas
Time is the only thing left to waste
Ya sabes, yo estoy de moda, papi
Mejor si el tiempo nos sobra
