In updating her 2020 album Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) last week, giving us a new version of the project, singer and songwriter Kali Uchis opened a ton of doors for new music, as well as further exploration into her own records and sounds she had already used.
Today, Uchis blessed us with a brand-new version of her track “fue mejor” (formerly featuring PartyNextDoor) and enlisted TDE songstress SZA to hop on the remix with her.
Seamlessly bouncing between Spanish and English, Uchis sets the scene with steamy vocals and lyrics that flow perfectly together and follow the ups and downs of getting a former lover. SZA slides through, molding her powerful yet elegant vocals into Spanish sentences that convey the exact headspace she is in following a breakup.
Both Uchis and SZA do a phenomenal job using their voices to create an almost angelic environment but potent lyrics cut through the beauty to let whoever is on the receiving end of these messages know that it’s really over.
Take a little sip, take a little puff
Don’t want to think, don’t want to talk, no
Is it enough, is it too much, oh
I’m not dead, so I’m not done
Check out the updated version of “fue mejor” featuring SZA below and let us know what you think in the comments.
