Dance/pop star Florian Picasso marks his comeback in a big way this week, releasing
‘Like You Do’ (ft. Gashi & Ally Brooke), the first of many new tracks to come and the
beginning of Picasso’s collaboration with Universal Music.
After two years spending most of his time in studios, Florian Picasso is finally back in the
dance music scene and is ready to take it by storm! Picasso’s latest opus ‘Like You Do’
takes him into mellow, introspective territory and is one of his most spectacular singles to date.
Vocals come from ex-Fifth Harmony member and ASAP Ferg collaborator Ally
Brooke and DJ Snake collaborator Gashi, who make a perfect pair.
Bitcrushed synths fizz up as the track begins, slamming us straight into Ally Brooke’s
pained, soaring vocals and sorrowful piano chords. A synth twinkles somewhere in the
background, before Gashi’s vocal joins in harmony and takes centre stage as the languid
trap beat trickles into life. His soulful delivery glides with the help of beautifully dreamy
effects, and the spacious arrangement really lets these choice vocals shine. The gorgeous
chorus sees them duet in perfect unison, and the momentum of the song keeps burning
into the second voice. It’s a very sophisticated, restrained pop track that’s drenched in
emotion and shows a tender side to Picasso’s tastes.
Look out for much more music from Florian Picasso in the coming months!
