It’s been a little over two years since AlunaGeorge – aka Aluna Francis and George Reid – dropped their 2013 debut, Body Music. Since then, they’ve manage to show up on a number of high-profile collaborations with the likes of Diplo & Skrillex, ZHU, Baauer, and DJ Snake, who gave new life to their 4-year-old song “You Know You Like It,” which is now known as their breakout single (peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100). A classic case of America always being late to the party.
We haven’t heard much from the duo themselves since their debut, aside from “Supernatural” in 2014, which makes the just released Popcaan-assisted “I’m In Control” their official comeback single. Right from the effervescent introductory piano chords, it’s clear that “I’m In Control” was designed to follow a similar path of “You Know You Like It” as they expertly swirl a tasteful blend of wispy percussion and jungle-colored vocal melodies around Aluna‘s tranquilizing voice to breed yet another chilled-out instant hit.
I’m totally here for this – WIN!
“I’m In Control” featuring Popcaan is set to be released everywhere tomorrow (January 21)!
