Kygo strikes once again. After teasing a collab with English singer and songwriter Ellie Goulding on social media, they have finally released their new song “First Time” and it will make you reflect on all your passed relationships.
Different from his recent”It Ain’t Me” break up anthem with Selena Gomez, this song uses Ellie Goulding’s soothing vocals with Kygo’s well known tropical melody in the back to reflect on a time where experiences with her young lover were all she needed to feel rich in the world.
“Getting drunk on a train track
Way back, when we tried our first cigarettes
Ten dollars was a fat stack
I’d do it all again
Bought my jacket and a snapback
Your dad’s black Honda was a Maybach”
Far from any hostility or finger pointing to an ex lover, listeners can close their eyes and look back on their own experiences when all you needed in the world was $10 to feel like a million bucks and holding hands with that one person as you cruise in his dad’s Honda.
