Kaytranada reveals that a planned collaboration with Gorillaz fell through

He's also waiting on Chance The Rapper to send over vocals for new track 'They Say'

Kaytranada has revealed that a planned collaboration with Gorillaz has fallen through.

The Canadian producer, who released his debut album ‘99.9%’ earlier this year, has worked with the likes of Anderson .Paak, The Internet and Craig David in the past year.

Taking to his Twitter for an impromptu fan Q&A last night (November 28), the 24-year-old told fans in a now-deleted tweet that an anticipated collaboration with Damon Albarn’s cartoon creations didn’t come to fruition (via The Fader).


“I was supposed to, they hit me up one time and I didn’t hear back from them again,” he replied to a fan who asked him if he might feature on any new Gorillaz material. The band are rumoured to currently be making their fifth studio album.

Kaytranada did confirm that a new song with Chance The Rapper was in the works, however – but revealed that the Chicago rapper still needs to send him vocals for their as-yet-unfinished track ‘They Say’.


Back in October, Kaytranada shared new remixes of songs by Chance The Rapper and Solange. The producer, who also won Canada’s Polaris Music Prize this year, said he had to the release the remixes as “I couldn’t help it, and I can’t deny how good [they] sound.”
