Daniel Caesar featuring BADBADNOTGOOD & Sean Leon – Paradise

As we wait for Frank Ocean's next album, why not listen to artists that kinda remind us of him, haha. Not familiar with this Daniel Caesar(who is apparently from Toronto) but with BADBADNOTGOOD the backing band on the track it is bound to be, at the very least, somewhere in the vicinity of good, and this is great.

Erykah Badu - Hotline Bling Remix

Badu taking a cue from Drizzy Drake who in turn took a cue from D.R.A.M. 

Love how one creation influences and informs another and so on and so forth.
