Uptown XO - Good Vibes

The song sounds exactly like the title: AB The Pro builds the beat around a soothing vibe chord change that XO compliments with unorthodox flow. Mirroring the musical mood, the video's director Blackie T takes us to a late summer barbecue in full effect: savory chicken and hot dogs grillin', homies chllin' and playing cards. Lyrically, XO makes clear that though skies may be grey at times, good vibes reign supreme. Lines like "The US Government played us like R&B, we were here before the colonies" point to the underlying conviction that fuels XO's tenacious but honest street style.
