London-based duo AlunaGeorge specializes in vibe-heavy deep house and electro-R&B, but their island injection on “I’m In Control” still didn’t seem too far out of their range. The elements of dancehall and reggaeton in the song’s production, along with a guest verse from Popcaan, all makes perfect sense considering singer-songwriter Aluna Francis is herself of Jamaican ancestry.
