Alt-pop singer-songwriter Julia Thompson debuts her first single of 2019, "DNA," featuring Reo Cragun.

Thompson explains the song's title, "There's always that someone in your life that becomes a part of who you are, that makes you who you are, and there is nothing you can do to escape. They become ingrained in your DNA."

With her music featured on Spotify's New Music Friday, Poptronix playlists, and MTV, Thompson joined forces with Cragun, whose collaborations involve G-Eazy, Flume, and Ekali, along with solo hits like "Thrilla" and "Holy."

"DNA" rides a trap-lite rhythm locked in with a piano's sensuous R&B savors. Cragun's silky falsetto balances Thompson's evocative voice, smoldering with unabashed desire. "I can't tell you to leave 'cause you're a part of me / Even when I can't see you out there / It's rushing / Through my bloodstream / It's in everyday / 'Cause you make up my DNA."
