Kitty Pryde: "Okay Cupid"

Apparently named after the longtime X-(wo)man, Kitty Pryde is like a cross between Childish Gambino and Frank Ocean (the latter of which is name checked in the song). "Okay Cupid" would probably be thoroughly incipient with a different type of production - see most of Gambino's ballads - but the hazy, narcotic beat re-contextualizes the adolescent, book cover poetry of the lyrics into a more sinister, drug-induced form of daydream.
