Even if we didn’t
know any background info about LIZ--like how she’s toured with Charli XCX, signed to Mad Decent Records, and counts Diplo as her #1 fan--we’d still be convinced that this girl is going to be huge based off her music alone. And yeah, that’s really saying something. “Do I Like U” is a springtime jam of epic proportions; it might start off slow and steady, but quickly picks up speed with a mishmash of ’90s-tinged R&B and pop melodies. She calls it
“Sailor Moon R&B,” and who are we to argue? Throw in some Aaliyah vibes and silky smooth vocals, and that’s all you need to let this song take over your eardrums immediately.
Produced by Yung Oji and r.i.c. volta (some of the many producers she’s working with), “Do I Like U” is the latest track off her forthcoming EP Just Like You,
out February 27. Get an exclusive first listen below, and download the entire EP--for free!--when it drops on Diplo’s Mad Decent label later this week.
