The Washington D.C native and recently awarded XXL Freshman Class member GoldLink is back with a new track “Dance On Me”. Having become an underground success because of his latest project The God Complex and with the help of upcoming talented producers Sango, Kaytranada, and Lakim, GoldLink has paved his own way in the industry and persists to hone his sound.
Produced by Milo Mills and Hasta, the soulful, electronic, hyper, and dance oriented hip hop continues with the sample “I Wanna Sex You Up” from 90’s R&B group Color Me Badd. The 1991 hit single provides a versatile basis for both producers to increase the tempo, add drum kicks, and create the signature bounce GoldLink naturally flows over. Discussing his affection for his new girl, the young rapper also describes his sudden changes to fame and the new experiences that come along with it.
“Dance On Me” is a good display of his (what sounds to be his effortless ADHD vocal performance) recognizable rap flow and is a track perfect for while we wait for new music. As he tours the world and gains more popularity the pressure my intensify. However on this track GoldLink seems to give a sense of reassurance that exceeding expectations has and will not phase him.
Starting another world tour and potentially working with legendary producer Rick Rubin on his next album, GoldLink is quickly on his way to becoming a household name and is garnering a mass interest on whats to come.
