Best New Track: "Friends" (feat. Bon Iver and Kanye West) - Francis and the Lights

I fell in love with Francis and the Lights in 2010 when I heard this track, and again in 2013 when I stumbled upon this single, and again this summer when my beloved Chance The Rapper sampled and featured Francis on the Coloring Book standout, "Summer Friends."

The theatrical pop artist ("The Lights" refers to the stage, not band members) is back with a brand new video for "Friends," the full song behind the "Summer Friends" sample, which features vocal help from Bon Iver and Kanye West. While 'Ye sways solemnly, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon joins Francis for a cute and quirky choreographed dance sequence.

The star-studded video is worth a watch, but the main event is easily the dreamy, deep-beated R&B song itself and its sweet message, which resonates strong after this week's events.
