OrelSan is a bona fide sensation. The rapper has taken his native France by storm with the three solo albums already under his belt, recently notching some high-profile wins at the Victoires de la Musique (essentially the French Grammys). To help him celebrate, he’s tapped YBN Cordae for the single “Tout ce que j’sais / All I Know,” a bilingual banger that finds both MCs delivering pure fire over a trap-inflected beat. Take a listen to the track (and see them hit the streets of Paris) in the player above.
OrelSan told Highsnobiety in an email how the collaboration came together: “We connected on Instagram – YBN Cordae and I, he is one of my favorite rappers right now. Things were so simple… I said ‘your music is fire’ and he said ‘let’s make a track.’ So I invited him on Epilogue, my album’s reissue. Since our last show of 2018 was live on TV, I invited him on stage, as a guest. We shot the other part of the video the next day. “It was fun to show him around Paris and film at the same time.”
