GoldLink seems like a great collaborator for anyone. He comfortably finds effective pockets, often packing clever wordplay and heavy narratives in all of his lyrics. This team-up with Coltrane for “Superpowers” is no different.
Rhythmic, guitar-sounding synths brighten up this track over a mid-tempo hi-hat and 808s. Coltrane’s vocals are a big highlight, warm and finding their way into the deep fibers of your skin. GoldLink’s entrance to the song might have stolen the show though, stating “money, pussy, power that’s my superpower.” As if there isn’t enough magic here, the breakdown at the end of the song is an ideal ending and smoothly rounds out the sonic experience.
We know D.C.’s own has an album coming soon, it’s just the when of it all. After a powerful visit to COLORS studio for “Justine’s Interlude” and “Got Muscle” racking up streams alongside Peewee Longway and WaveIQ, it feels like the golden hour is almost upon us. As for Coltrane, this follows up his single “The Fruits” featuring RAYE and DJDS.
The two are ending Q1 of 2019 on a strong note. Now let’s see what they do next. For now, tap into your inner hero and zone out to “Superpowers.”
