Oliver Nelson - Ain't A Thing

Oliver Nelson is an artist who is better known for remixing, but now he is testing talent by creating original music. His new song, “Ain’t A Thing,” is definitely something. The best way we can describe it is modern disco—so we easily hear it play in Studio 54, if its prime was four decades later.

 

OLIVER NELSON FT. KALEEM TAYLOR - AIN'T A THING

Featuring Kaleem Taylor, “Ain’t A Thing” is full of energy and funk with soul-induced electronics. In the first lines, Kaleem sings, “I've tried playing it cool / But when I'm looking at you / I can't ever be brave / 'Cause you make my heart race.” Though, while Kaleem no doubt has sensational pipes, it’s all to Oliver’s credit that this song induces such feelings of euphoria. Gliding keys paired with jazzy energetic thumps have a way of lightening up even the darkest moods.

You know that endorphin-rush you get when you crushing hard on someone across the room? That is sort of how this entire song feels. If you’re daydreaming about spinning around with a new love interest, “Ain’t A Thing” could probably be playing in the background. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a partner and get down on the dancefloor.
