Cuco, Jean Carter Talk Bad Romance in New Song ‘Bossa No Sé’

Blending Brazilian saudade with boyish melodrama, the new song will feature in Cuco’s major label debut

SoCal singer-songwriter Cuco has dropped a new track titled “Bossa No Sé.” Featuring hip-hop newcomer Jean Carter, it is the second single off Cuco’s major label debut, due for release via Interscope in June.

Blending flutters of bossa nova guitar with cutting trap beats, “Bossa No Sé” — a wordplay on the Spanish phrase “no sé,” or “I don’t know” — sees the 20-year-old alchemize genres into a brilliant hybrid, which we’ll unofficially dub trap-icalia. The otherwise saccharine melody is offset by Cuco and Carter’s downcast verses, steeped in both Brazilian saudade and boyish melodrama. “You broke my heart/But I’m also so obsessed with you,” sings Cuco in the chorus: “I don’t know if I love you/I don’t know if I hate you.”

The song follows the melancholic single “Hydrocodone,” which will also feature on Cuco’s upcoming LP. After a brief festival run in the U.K. and Spain, Cuco and his band will kick off his North American tour June 16th in Washington D.C.
