“Tyrant” is receiving widespread critical praise:

“It's glittery and danceable, but brutal in its honesty… ‘Tyrant’ is a romantic banger flecked with self-awareness. It skillfully portrays love in the age of rumbling dystopia: a boudoir anointed by something pure even though its walls may shake with the unrest outside. ” —NPR Music

"We have finally been blessed this week with new music from Kali Uchis. After nearly a year without new music, the Colombian-American songbird makes a strong return with Jorja Smith in this tropical tune." —NYLON

“A simmering, sensual listen” —Consequence of Sound

“The singer, songwriter and producer's dual language track delights with layers of sonic effervescence atop a bouncing beat.” —Cool Hunting

Raised in Virginia and her parents’ native Colombia, Kali Uchis’ debut studio project, Por Vida, was released in 2015 to acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, Pitchfork and The FADER. Uchis has collaborated and shared stages with Gorillaz, Diplo, Major Lazer, Tyler The Creator, Snoop Dogg, Kaytranada, Leon Bridges and more.
