Calid B releases "Gold," the lead single off of his forthcoming debut album AfroBang. It's a song stripped down to the bare essentials. To start, we get a meandering standup bassline and some simplistic drums. Then, Calid B's concise crooning introduces the track's hook before the beat modestly expands to its streamlined yet full form. To round out the magic, Calid B enlists the trumpeteering of Sam Trump.
Lyrically, Calid B affectionately addresses a woman whose glorious skin glows brighter than gold. Labeled R&B, one might consider the verse mid-track a pleasant surprise. In it, Calid B attempts to explain to listeners the moment he was first infatuated with this beauty and the OG pick up line he dropped on her. Party Noire lends her vocal stylings to offer the beauty a chance to respond. She seems to be keen on his advances and appreciative of him being honest about his feelings. Cool out to this smooth summer celebration of beauty and be on the lookout for AfroBang dropping not soon enough.
