CHAI have remixed a track by the New York–based collective MICHELLE, sharing a new version of “FYO” with a colorful video. Check it out below.

MICHELLE first released “FYO” in late January, and the track addresses the difficulties of navigating multiracial identities. The band shared a brief statement about working with CHAI on the track:

CHAI’s rework of “FYO” breathes new life and sound into what it means to grow up in a certain state of limbo. To connect audiences and languages across the world in this way, to this particular track, means a lot to us as a band and we hope for our listeners too.

CHAI shared their own thoughts on the collaboration:

We can’t get enough of the romantic and nostalgic sounds of MICHELLE! They are like all we listened to this year! WE LOVE YOU MICHELLE♡♡♡!!♡♡♡ I’d say waking up first thing in the morning and listening to MICHELLE is the best! ♡⭐︎♡ Crazy how I added them to my playlist and the next thing I know we get a phone call about a collaboration! And without hesitation of course, we said “YES!” immediately. ♡♡ And this song we did together… it’s super relaxing right?! ♡♡ MICHELLE’s amazing vibes are what’s most striking and WE LOVE IT! They possess something that we don’t and that’s what we admire most♡♡

MICHELLE released their debut record HEATWAVE in 2018, returning in 2020 with the singles “SUNRISE” and “UNBOUND.”

CHAI’s next album, WINK, is out via Sub Pop on May 21. They’ve so far shared the LP’s “ACTION,” “Maybe Chocolate Chips,” “Nobody Knows We Are Fun,” and “Donuts Mind if I Do.”
