Buddy teams up with Tinashe today for his new song ‘Glitch‘, out now via RCA Records. Listen HERE.
The track is featured on Apple Music 1’s New Music Daily show with Zane Lowe today and is the latest in a winning spell of collaborations following ‘Ain’t Sweet‘ featuring Matt Ox, which Uproxx called an “infectious, rambunctious vibe,” and ‘Faces‘ featuring his Grammy-nominated label mate Lucky Daye. The track also arrives after Buddy’s powerful, cinematic visual for ‘Black 2‘, the sequel to ‘Black’ from his 2018 debut album Harlan & Alondra featuring ASAP Ferg.
For his recent string of singles Buddy has received acclaim across online tastemakers Acclaim, Sniffers, Acid Stag and playlisting on triple j for ‘Black 2‘. This follows profiles with Purple Sneakers and FBi Radio for Harlon & Alondra. Last year, Buddy released the deluxe edition of his critically-acclaimed album Harlan & Alondra, joined Vince Staples on an explosive North American tour, performed at NPR’s Tiny Desk, The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The same year, Buddy also played a major role in the Grammy-nominated Revenge of the Dreamers III album, featuring on seven tracks on the Director’s Cut version including fan favorites ‘Costa Rica‘ and ‘1993‘. Most recently, he was profiled in Document Journal and teamed up with fellow LA rapper Kent Jamz in April for Janktape Vol.1 which NPR called “one of the best collab tapes of 2020 so far.”
