Amassing over 300M Spotify streams, New York City’s Black Caviar has been solidified in the dance music world with genre-bending music to fans across the globe. For his newest release “Collect Check” he has teamed up with the talented EMIDA. Their collaboration is out now on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records.
“When I first heard EMIDA’s smooth vocals, I was blown away. Her style, tone, and delivery reminded me of Sade. I wanted to make sure the production sat in the right place that would compliment her vocal.” – Black Caviar
This house gem opens with groovy melodies that gently meld into a deep, minimal bassline that feels right at home both on the dance floor or when listening at home. Furthermore “Collect Check” features some smooth, velvety vocals by EMIDA. Probably many people can relate to the message the song wants to spread. It was inspired by a relationship with financial instability, something that many people faced during the global pandemic, and the desire for success. Read on below for the full story behind “Collect Check”:
“The songwriting process was spurred from a period of financial instability. It led me to write about wanting to hustle out of that situation and aspire to a more opulent lifestyle. The lyrics’ collect cheque – run it back’ are about getting paid but still wanting more because It’s never enough. Ending with ‘run it forward’ – straight to the bank. It was a fun song to write because money can be quite a taboo subject. But with this track, I wanted to make it cheeky, sassy and cool.” – EMIDA
