Kaytranada has the Midas touch so teaming him up with multiple-Grammy winner Alicia Keys has got to be pure gold. Their new heater, “Sweet F’in Love” lives up to the name, combining Keys’ honey-glazed vocals with the Montreal DJ/producer’s syrupy downtempo beat.

“Sweet F’in Love” was posted on Soundcloud last night by Swizz Beats, a hitmaker in his own right, who also happens to be Keys’ husband.

Music heads may pick up on the familiar beat as Kaytranada has made old new again, by repurposing “Hoy Jazzybelle”, a lesser known song from his 2013 EP, Kaytra Todo, to better serve Keys’ “sweet f’in” vocal stylings.
