Kaytranada had a breakout year in 2016, with his debut LP 99.9% garnering a ton of year-end praise. And after sharing unofficial remixes of Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky” and Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better”, the Montreal producer has now joined forces with with Alicia Keys on new song “Sweet F’ing Love.”
“Sweet F’ing Love” was posted to Soundcloud on Monday night (Jan. 9) by Keys’ husband, fellow producer Swizz Beatz, followed by an enthusiastic tweet from Keys saying: “2017 fun vibes 🎉🎉🎉🎼🎼🎤🎤🎹🎹 sending you all my Sweet F’in love! 😘😘 2017 is going to be so SICK!!!!!”

The new song continues Keys’ effort into experimental house music that we saw on her Billboard Dance No. 1 hit “In Common.” Kaytranana infuses a shuffling piano groove, and a sultry interlude during the break that screams ’90s R&B.
Billboard has reached out to a spokesperson for Keys about whether the song might get an official release, so far no word.
