Santigold and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs collaborate on a new track entitled “GO”. The concept of the song is about the new American Dream. The song was dropped first on Jay-Z’s lifestyle blog, Life + Times.
Life + Times: What does “GO” represent for you?
Santigold: In this song, “GO” has a dual meaning. On one hand it’s a challenge, beckoning any would-be usurpers to come show and prove. On the other, it’s a call to myself to rise to the occasion. “Go” is a “fun” song. It’s playful, but like many of my songs, lyrically it was an opportunity for me to vent. It’s about the difficulties of holding onto what’s yours, everything from your ideas and energy, to your confidence.
