Yung Envy, a 20 year old from Little Rock, slides through with a new set of visuals in the form of “Stay Away.” This is a magnetically alluring track. It is a short one, but sweet nonetheless.

Powered by Yours Truly and Adidas Originals, we are presented with the latest installment of the “Songs from Scratch” campaign, allowing us fans to get a view into the creative process of designing a song. Chet Faker and GoldLink seem to be quite the combination. “On You” is a love song, but is far from the archetype of such compositions. Over a somewhat mechanical-sounding instrumental, Chet’s falsetto-driven hook “I can save a hundred million dollars for love. Just tell me where to spend it on you, girl,” thrives throughout. Even though he switches flows a number of times, GoldLink’s verse is strongly paced and rhythmically calculated, which results in a uniquely infectious delivery. Whoever had the idea of bringing these two musicians together seriously deserves a raise.
Stream “On You” and most definitely watch the short video of the two crafting this song from scratch below.
