jj grab the reigns in this collaboration with Ne-Yo for Adult Swim’s Singles Program.
“We Can’t Stop” is technically a collaboration between Swedish airy-popsters jj and Ne-Yo for Adult Swim’s Singles Program, but the swede duo (thankfully) do most of the heavy lifting.
The track begins with an ornate build-up highlighting jj’s subtly haunting sound and vocalist Elin Kastlander’s captivating, Nico-like speak/singing. It all, unfortunately, leads to a Ne-Yo verse that sounds so out of place it ruins the vibe of the tune. But then, at 3:50, jj loop one of his vocals, turn him down in the mix and transform an awkward verse into a thumping outro. The rest is bliss.
Check out the track below. Download it, and plenty other tunes, over at Adult Swim.
