A Breakup Banger: Kygo & Chelsea Cutler Join Forces For “Not Ok”
EDIT: The post has been updated with the video, which features Gia Gunn from RuPaul’s Drag Race. Watch it below.
2019 is shaping up to be a great year for Kygo. The Norwegian DJ has already landed a massive streaming hit with “Think About You” and then teamed up with Rita Ora to brighten up the Pokémon Detective Pikachu soundtrack with “Carry On.” He now makes it three winners in a row with “Not Ok,” a brutal breakup anthem featuring Chelsea Cutler. “Seven months, two weeks and seven days, since I was so easily replaced,” she sings in the opening verse. “It’s so strange how I recognize her face, but tell me does she make you feel the same?”
Things get even bleaker from there when Chelsea indulges in a little late-night drunk dialing. “I just called you to say, I’m not okay,” she sings on the chorus. Which is followed by a strangely euphoric drop. If you’re going through it, but also really want to dance — this is your song! “Not Ok” is the latest taste of Kygo’s much-anticipated third LP. Two years have passed since the release of Kids In Love, so we’re due for another long-player. Get ready to process a lot of emotional baggage and check out “Not Ok” below.
