Ookay may have built the foundation of his following through a series of high-powered trap remixes and originals over the years, but it wasn't until recently that the Los Angeles artist experienced his strongest performing single to date.

Despite the unorthodox switch in sound, all doubts were quickly made null as the release began receiving an influx of positive responses. The track was on heavy rotation at EDC Las Vegas 2016, receiving live support by festival mainstays Tiesto, A-Trak, Don Diablo and several others.
"Thief" has garnered over 2.5 million streams on Soundcloud thus far and continues to bring in new fans for the burgeoning act. The official music video for the song follows suit with the production's aesthetic: lush in color, emotions and soul. Watch it below:
