In addition to the aforementioned names, Pharrell and Ghanaian singer Amaarae will feature on the 11-track album as well.

KAYTRAMINÉ will be Aminé’s first album since 2021’s TWOPOINTFIVE and the first from the Grammy-winning DJ since 2019’s BUBBA.
KAYTRANADA is no stranger to collaborative projects as the prolific Haitian-Canadian producer has teamed up in the past with the likes of Robert Glasper and The Celestics as well as IDK in 2022.
The Portland native and Kay’s relationship dates back about a decade as they first united when Aminé remixed the dance music hero’s “Not At All” in 2014 and they reconnected again in 2015 for “La Danse.”

The “Caroline” rapper also worked with Rejjie Snow on “Egyptian Luvr” which was produced by KAYTRANADA in 2018.
In a rare interview with Complex last year, Aminé opened up about his hopes for mentorship from some of the best Hip Hop has to offer when navigating the industry.
“I don’t really have too many artists I look to for advice, to be honest with you,” he said. “I wish I did. I wish I had, like, a Drake or a J. Cole to tell me shit, but I’m not that close with them. We know of each other—we’ve met, and it’s good vibes, of course—but I’m not signed to an artist or anything, and no one has really taken me under their wing.”
He continued: “It would be a dream. It’d be sick if Kanye West was like, ‘Yeah, man. What’s up?’ I really want to meet JAY-Z. I don’t want the $500,000.”
