Tropical House producer Kygo took to twitter today to let his fans know that he teamed up with Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener to premiere his latest tracks on their OTHERtone Beats 1 radio show. The newly premiered track is a collaboration with New York rapper Nas and features a sampling from his "Life's A Bitch" featuring A.Z, the third single from Nas' iconic 1994 album Illmatic.

The Kygo and Nas track is a smooth reimagining infused with pretty piano leads, soft synths, signature tropical vibes and newer R&B stylings. The track is expected to appear on Kygo's upcoming debut album, according to his team who reached out to EDM.com prior to the premiere.

Pharrell and Verner debuted the track live on Beats 1 this afternoon, but fans can check out the replay below or tune in to the restream of the podcast tomorrow at noon PST.
