Kelela, the diva who graced Kingdom’s near-song of the year “Bank Head” will soon be at the forefront of our selections with the release of her debut mixtape CUT 4 ME.

Keep It Cool” is chopped from Kelela’s CUT 4 ME, out October 1 on Kingdom’s Fade to Mind imprint, and sees the tantalizing LA songstress laying down chilly R&B hooks over perfectly supportive production from Jam City. The beat is characteristic of the producer, translucent in its aesthetic similarity to the majority of Night Slugs, which is nearly a bad thing.
