We all know the incredible sounds of Ookay since his breakthrough track “Thief” which amassed over eighty million streams on Spotify alone. Over the last couple of years, this crazy bass pumped American has blessed us with many great tracks. Now ahead of his highly-anticipated, sophomore studio album, Ookay returns with his newest collaboration “BE OK.” This track is following up solo originals “Deep With Me,” “Weekends” and “Not Again” and marks the fourth release of the album. For this star-studded collaboration he called in the assistance from electronic music mainstay Flux Pavilion and multi-talented electronic alternative producer and singer/songwriter Elohim.
“This song has gone on quite a journey. Flux Pavilion stopped by my place in Los Angeles back in 2019 and we just bonded and worked on some ideas while playing around with midi, guitars and talked about life on my roof. Fast forward a year and a half later and after about 10 different versions of the song, I sent it to the amazingly talented Elohim who sent back some awesome vocals then we started writing back and forth. The song is about just wanting to be ok, which is a feeling most people can relate to. In your darkest moments, you want to find your way towards a more positive reality and this song is a yearning for that.” – Ookay
“It is difficult to feel ok while navigating this vast world. Being surrounded by friends and community is something that helps me get through challenging times. The experience of making this song with Ookay and Flux was exactly that and I hope the feeling of listening to the song will do the same for others.” – Elohim
Ookay has consistently shown flashes of his creativity and growth, offering further proof that he stands head and shoulders above most contemporaries in his lane. With this new single Ookay shows once again that he is best at bringing us a bass filled joyous track. “BE OK” overflows with confidence as he expands on his new sound and style. This track is spacious and patient, two crucial qualities that enable Elohim’s stunning vocal prowess to shine, folding in beautifully with Ookay’s infectious toplines without being overwhelmed.
While the vocals are a deserved focal point in this track, the buoyant melody also shines, providing an energetic base for the track to prop itself up on. Despite their stylistic differences on their collaborative debut, the combination of Ookay, Flux Pavilion, and Elohim is one that is sure to leave fans eager for more. “BE OK” is a cheerful, energetic track that showcases the respective skill-sets of each artist fused into a single, cohesive offering.
