This combination of artists on "One Touch" is so bizarre that it deserves instant explanation from Baauer, the producer who brought them all together. Baauer told The Fader:
"I recorded Aluna over a year ago, when we first met. The track I gave her was so basic and had no chord progression or anything so she said 'you gotta give me something to work with' and made that the intro. I held on to the track for a while and changed it about 1000 times. Fast forward about a year, I was in Vegas with Swae and Slim (Rae Sremmurd) recording them rapping over the GTA V loading screen song. It was incredible. The next night, back in New York, I put the Aluna and Rae verses together just for fun… and it sounded reaal good. :D"
"Reaal good" might be an understatement. Baauer, bro, this "One Touch" is fucking fire. The beat, as inconspicuous as it is, is instantly captivating. It's the kind of bounce that makes you get together with your crew at the club and drop your finest choreographed dance. Alunageorge's chorus serves to stitch the song together after Rae Sremmurd's shrieking verses unwind all civilized thought. Baauer's quite a sultry hit on his hands.
