The last few years have seen Kali Uchis setting the stage nicely for incipient stardom, but with Grammy nominations, slots at Coachella and a support tour with Lana Del Rey – not to mention a much-anticipated debut album – it is becoming abundantly clear that 2018 is hers for the taking. This past weekend, the rising singer unleashed her new single “After The Storm” featuring funk legend Bootsy Collins and longtime collaborator Tyler The Creator.


Taken from that forthcoming LP, “After the Storm” is a slinky, twinkling diamond of a song, urging the listener to stay strong and hold fast even as things start to crumble and fade. “We can find solace in the fact that we have to go through the bad stuff to truly get to the good,” says Uchis of the track. “Just because you’re losing at the moment doesn’t mean you’ve lost yet. The storm may be scary now but it’s how your flowers bloom later, and paradise is just beyond the rainbow.”
