“Kaytraminé Releases A Dreamy Summer Anthem Titled “Rebuke””
For the last few months, Kaytranada and Aminé have been teasing their new collaborative project, Kaytaminé. Fans have eagerly awaited the project. In April, they got their first taste when the duo released their first single under the new moniker, “4EVA.” The track was a funky, dance-worthy track featuring Pharrell Williams. In addition to the release, Kaytranada further teased the project during the first weekend of Coachella. Last week, Kaytraminé shared the album artwork for the upcoming project.
The cover art for the album, which is self-titled, conveys that their music is meant to spread warmth during the summer season. The collaborators are shown in the artwork unwinding on vivid pink beach chairs. Aminé raises his champagne glass towards the camera, and Kaytranada can be seen laying back, smoking a joint. A larger perspective with additional chairs and people in the surrounding area can be seen on the album’s reverse side. There, they revealed the tracklist, showing that there are some big features on the way. In addition to the already released track with the Pharrell feature, there are tracks that will feature artists like Snoop Dogg and Freddie Gibbs. Today, the pair has given us another taste of the album with the single “Rebuke.”
Kaytraminé Create The Perfect Summer Vibe On New Single
You know that feeling you get when you’re walking down the street in the humid summer heat while the sun filters through the leaves on the trees and life just feels good? That is exactly the feeling that Kaytraminé manage to evoke on their new track, “Rebuke.” Kaytranada’s production skills are subdued but still provide the perfect backing for Aminé’s laid back flow. On the song, Aminé raps about feelings that he refuses.
“Can’t even lie, it hurt to see you with someone else,” the rapper says. “But I know movin’ on is better than to sit and dwell.” With these types of lyrics, it’s perfect for the end of cuffing season. The song references breakups, and there is somewhat of a sense of melancholy. However, it’s doesn’t veer fully into depressing territory. It feels like the kind of bittersweet track you play when you finally accept that things are going to get better once you move on from a relationship that doesn’t work. What do you think of the new track? Sound off in the comments!
Giving up I refuse
That’s the type of feeling I rebuke
My bitch like your lips brand new
And it’s only ’cause we couldn’t get through it
