Brent Faiyaz and Tyler, the Creator teamed up for a groovy new single, “Gravity.” Faiyaz spoke with Vogue about the track saying it’s “about a woman holding you down through all [the ups and downs]. The song has an outer space energy that makes you feel like everything and anything is possible.”
Produced by DJ Dahi, the track’s lo-fi electric guitar and bass synths are provided by Steve Lacy. Reminiscent of soul and funk, these elements pair well with Faiyaz’s promising vocals and Tyler’s straightforward delivery.
Faiyaz released his second EP Fuck the World last year, which KAZI ranked as one of the best albums of 2020. “Gravity” comes shortly after the Maryland singer teased his latest single “Solo” for Calvin Klein x pgLang, a collaboration between Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free’s creative agency and the clothing brand. The song is Tyler’s first musical offering of the year.
