Christina Aguilera and Nile Rodgers have released their disco collaboration “Telepathy,” which will premiere Friday (August 12) on the first episode of the Netflix series The Get Down.
The song features brass, harp and strings and is filled with Rodgers’ signature throbbing funk bass and a propulsive beat. The lyrics are about the synergy of a good relationship. “I’ve got you and you’ve got me/ I know you and you know me/ We’ve got telepathy,” sings Aguilera at the chorus of the song before launching into one of many improvisational vocal volleys.
The Get Down stars Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Jaden Smith, Jimmy Smits and Giancarlo Esposito.
