You Rate It: Kali Uchis – “Know What I Want”

Words by Natalie Weiner

kali-uchis-900x599

If there’s room for one more in 2014’s league of extraordinary alt-R&B singers (see also Hollie Cook, FKA Twigs, Lianne La Havas…just to name some of our faves), it’s 20 year-old Kali Uchis. A Colombiana hailing from the DMV, Uchis has a voice that falls somewhere between Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu, but with a distinctly tropical lilt, and her vintage-flavored tracks have already caught the attention of Diplo, Tyler the Creator, and Snoop Dogg (hear their duet—yes, she’s already done a track with Snoop—here).
