Canadian producer-DJ Ekali has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the electronic scene over the past few years after an early release was sampled by Drake on his 2015 mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.

A little south of the border in Chicago, Illinois, Kiiara was coming up in her own fashion around the same time: lofted by the multi-platinum mega-hit “Gold,” she has enjoyed sustained success – of her own accord and with collaborative help from globally renowned artists such as Linkin Park, Lil Wayne, Future, and Ty Dolla $ign.

It is no wonder that the two would be such an iconic pairing for the instant hit “Back To You.” The pop sensibilities of both artists’ backgrounds make for an excellent track ready for airplay, no oversight or reimagining necessary. The wistful background tones complement the wobbly instrumental sections providing the song with a musical diversity beneath Kiiara’s thoughtfully plaintive lyricism and scathing yet icy cool vocal performance.

You don’t want to miss this track – or else you’ll be the one wishing to “go back” after it inevitably makes it big time. Let us know what you think below in the comments!
