DMV golden boy GoldLink knows how to make vintage soundscapes feel brand new, and his latest collaboration with Miguel is no different. 

“Got Friends” is a dizzying and silky offering, which brings out the best of both artists in one luxe swoop. 

There’s a wonderfully industrial lilt to the Stereotypes production. GoldLink’s raps prowl about the thin and teetering synths while “Got Friends” plays as the who’s who for GoldLink’s taste in women. 

There’s also an understated elegance to his delivery that gives “Got Friends” a sultry air, accented nicely by Miguel’s yearning high notes. This is a single (read: potential smash) that unfurls in the shadows, a song that sounds like the strips of light peeking through the morning after. A hungover love never sounded so good.
