Tyler, The Creator and Kali Uchis Play a Chill, Piano-Rap “See You Again”
"See You Again," the latest single from Tyler, The Creator's Flower Boy LP, is getting some airplay on US radio right now.

Uchis smolders through her verses as she does on record and—even with the smartphone sound quality and the untempered volume of the piano—it's worth listening to.
