Coco O. and Robin Hannibal, better known as the soulful twosome Quadron, deliver their latest endeavor titled “Better Off” featuring good kid spitter Kendrick Lamar.

The singer/producer duo revealed the collaboration to The Boombox last June, adding that Kendrick was a fan of theirs.

“It was meant for his album,” Coco said of the jazzy ballad. “When you’re working on an album, you do so many songs with different artists, you don’t know what it’s going to be. I think also, a lot of times, it’s just an introduction as an artist, to each other. What he’s gonna do with the song, we don’t really know. [The song] is about love, bad love. I don’t really remember because it’s not even done yet. Robin produced it.”

For the finished product, K. Dot throws in some animated wordplay and sensual bars for the ladies reminiscent of his contributions on the Drake-assisted “Poetic Justice” while Coco soars high with her airy vocals. Consider it a match made in perfect harmony.

Quadron’s new album Avalanche hits stores June 4.
