In preparation for the April 8th release of his Pop/RnB opus Go, Strange Music consigliere Krizz Kaliko releases “Talk Up On It” via the Strange Music Soundcloud. Though he is known mostly as a rapper, “Talk Up On It” is a bouncy and flirtatious RnB track, which equally recalls Chic, Cee-Lo Green Is The Soul Machine, early ’00s Timbaland and Michael Jackson’s Bad. Produced by Michael “Seven” Summers, “Talk Up On It” represents the lighter side of Go, proving that Krizz Kaliko’s dancefloor jams are just as good as the darker explorations of his psyche. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
As Krizz Kaliko explains the genesis of “Talk Up On It,” “I was on tour and walking through a mall with my wife when I saw an extraordinarily attractive woman walk by. This made me think about the strategy I’ve always taken to approaching a woman that I was interested in. What I wrote in the verses of the song are exactly the way I think when approaching a woman in any situation with the intention of seducing her: I’m going to flirt a little bit and then back off. All the while, in the back of my mind, I’m thinking, ‘I’m not a cute guy, but I’m going to get her anyway.’ Michael “Seven” Summers and I produced the beat together. I had the idea for the beat and I gave it to him over the phone while I was on tour. I brought the label owner’s assistant, Korey Lloyd, in to play lead guitar. He works in the office but he’s a mean guitar player. Now the whole world will get to hear how I talk up on it.”
