Starlito and Ryan Hemsworth ‘Can’t Get Over You’ on Love-Dazed Team-Up
Tennessee rapper and Canadian producer finally combine for "Songs From Scratch" series
Starlito is a Nashville rapper whom SPIN has called “the closest thing that gangsta rap has to a #Based hero” like Lil B. Ryan Hemsworth is an Internet-born Canadian producer who walks in the cloud-steps of Lil B’s “I’m God” producer Clams Casino. Their combination for Yours Truly and Adidas Originals’ “Songs From Scratch” series could hardly be more welcome, but better yet is the result: “Can’t Get Over You,” which marries Starlito’s laconic post-breakup yearning to Hemsworth’s glistening harp arpeggios and blaring horns. It’s not the kind of love song you might put on a flirty mixtape — “I think about you all the time,” goes the hook — but it ought to sound perfect for anyone in the narrator’s state of hazy heartbreak. The series has previously brought together Angel Haze and Lunice, Danny Brown and AraabMuzik, Chance the Rapper and Nosaj Thing, Jeremih and Shlohmo — obviously we’re not a golfer, but that’s the score card of a scratch player.
