"Get You (feat. Kali Uchis)"

Goose bump inducing to the core, “Get You” will surely get “you” R&B listeners out there excited again, after years of melodically absent and aggressively designed tracks popularized by singer-trappers. This song, while never straying too far from it’s core structure, does contain a dreamy arrangement, sensual bass line, and even a bridge that takes listeners on a little side trip, before returning to heaven. Caeser keeps everything sexy on this track, from his enchanting vocals, to his leaned out casual stage performance, to the slap of the languid rhythm, with a bass that comes in short and succinct bursts. Haunting are the atmospheric string effects, holding everything together and creating a desire to never want to leave the moment. No doubt about it, this song was made for sex.

Caeser lets the note hang; “Oooooooh, who woulda thought I’d get you?” His beautiful voice breaks ever so slightly, translating real passion and hooking audiences word by word. The melody is soft and late, but the sounds are distinct and sharp, as if reminding the listener to wake up in between the moments of the sleep-inducing groove. Caeser awakens from his own slumber, tossing away his shirt and exclaiming “ and when we’re making love, your cries they can be heard from far and wide, it’s only the two of us, everything I need’s between those thighs.” The bass takes some funky steps here, and all instruments lead to a rising bridge, creating an inner joy that is deeply felt, thanks to swirling overdubs and ghostly chords.

Apparently, the source material for the ballad was Caeser’s own intense past relationships, synthesized and bottled for our enjoyment. The love fest displayed in the video looks very authentic, and, together with the music, “Get You” proves what happens when you apply your heart to physical attraction.

Lyrics

"Get You (feat. Kali Uchis)"

[Daniel Caesar:]
Through drought and famine, natural disasters
My baby has been around for me
Kingdoms have fallen, angels be calling
None of that could ever make me leave
Every time I look into your eyes I see it
You're all I need
Every time I get a bit inside I feel it

Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you
Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you

And when we're making love
Your cries they can be heard from far and wide
It's only the two of us
Everything I need's between those thighs
Every time I look into your eyes I see it
You're all I need
Every time I get a bit inside I feel it

Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you
Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you

[Kali Uchis:]
And I'll take some time
Just to be thankful
That I had days full of you, you
Before it winds down into
The memories, It’s all just memories

[Daniel Caesar:]
(If you've got someone you like...)
Don't you love when I come around
(...feel something that's right somebody just tell somebody)
Build you up then I take you down
(If you've got someone you like...)
Don't you love when I come around
(...feel something that's right somebody just tell somebody)
Build you up then I take...

[Daniel Caesar:]
Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you
Oooooooh, who would've thought I'd get you

[Kali Uchis:]
This feels like summer
Boy you make me feel so alive
Just be my lover
Boy you'll lead me to paradise
