Kali Uchis and Rico Nasty have combined their talents on a new single called “Aquí Yo Mando”. It marks the first-ever collaboration between the Colombian-American neo-soul singer and Maryland-born rapper.

The track’s title roughly translates to “Here I Command”, though there’s also a similarly named Chilean telenovela that translates to “I Am the Boss”. Either way, listeners should already know what to expect from these two women here: unabashed domination and forceful flexing, both in and out of the bedroom.

“I’m your little mamacita/ You do everything that I say/ If you’re with me, only I call the shots,” Uchi sings, following later with, “I make the decisions, I pick the positions/ You can have the balls, but me the pants.”

As for Rico, she can’t stop herself from boasting about the Nasty. “They can’t do it like me/ No, they can’t do it like me, bae/ I know I ride that D, same way I did this beat, bae.”

Today’s new song follows Uchis’ To Feel Alive demos EP from April, which she recorded because she “can’t give you my album yet.” Her last full-length came with Isolation in 2018. Rico has been far more preoccupied lately, contributing songs to HBO’s Insecure, Kevin Durant’s new Showtime documentary, and the new Scooby-Doo movie. The MC most recently appeared on the fresh remix record from 100 gecs.
