Danish electric-soul duo Quadron (Robin Hannibal and Coco O.) enlist Kendrick Lamar for the smooth groove “Better Off.” The two were formerly in a group called the Boom Clap Bachelors, who’s song “Tiden Flyver” Lamar sampled for “B*tch Don’t Kill My Vibe.”
About having Lamar on the collab, Hannibal said, “He invited us to collaborate on his own album, and we had such a great time working with him that we asked him if he wanted to be part of our project as well. We are so happy for all his success and we are very proud of this song. We wanted to have more of a fluid song that wasn't too over structured and had a bit of a bedroom/afterhours vibe to it.”
With a Marvin Gaye feel, Coco’s vocals glide oh so nicely on this one, Lamar’s verse is the cherry on top.
From Quadron’s June 4 album Avalanche, which is available for pre-order on iTunes.
