Roc Nation’s hidden gem Kalan.FrFr is slowly taking over with his latest hit “No Stoppin.”
The Los Angeles native linked with fellow California artist Blxst on the fresh-pressed track on Friday (June 24), delivering a light, summer tune perfectly designed to play while driving with the windows down. Dropping off the visual nearly a month later (July 15), “No Stoppin” sees the pair
Kalan originally teased a snippet of the track in the studio while face-timing Blxst. The airy single arrives just in time for summer, as Kalan and Blxst melodically profess their love over a serene, easy-going beat produced by Inderan K. Bailey, Earl “EB” Johnson, Beat Gang Worldwide, and The Stereotypes.
“No Stoppin” is a distinct switch-up from his previously released single “Popstar.” The latter allowed him to show off his ever-changing flow over a hard-hitting beat while this new song focuses more on his vocals. He croons over the chorus on “No Stoppin,” singing how he will give his partner anything she wants because of how special she is. Both songs boast the melodic rapper’s versatility — displaying that he can easily adjust to any production thrown at him.
Blxst comes in on the second verse, pairing excellently with Kalan’s soulful vibrato and delivering more lines about his lover and how he will always make time for her. The duo act as a perfect tag team — and their voices are an idyllic combo.
I get in my feelings, I don’t need nobody
Hit me, you know everybody needs somebody, ayy
Slide on me when you wanna see somebody
Full speed, all gas, no brakes, no stoppin’
I give you what you want ’cause you special
I give you what you need ’cause you special
If you need it, I’ll run through walls if you call me
Full speed, all gas, no brakes, no stoppin’Kalan & Blxst — “No Stoppin”
As the track is a summery love letter to the significant others in their lives, the music video exudes the same premise. “No Stoppin” gives off a perfect summer day in the hills, with both Kalan and Blxst taking their ladies on a shopping spree, showing their appreciation for their significant others and how they will always be at their side.
Blxst’s new feature comes a few months after his sophomore project Before You Go. The singer-rapper also appeared on Kendrick Lamar‘s “Die Hard” off his latest album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.
With “No Stoppin” and “Popstar” seemingly leading in his next full-length effort, Kalan is fully prepared to be one of the next generation’s top hitmakers.
