A$AP Rocky has been making the rounds with his features lately. And I know we’ve just heard the original from Sam Smith (which I still love), there’s something about this official remix that I can’t help going back to.
It’s weird. The first time I heard this remix, I didn’t like it at all. But as I listened to it more and more, there was just something that clicked for me. I can’t really explain what it is, but I felt the need to share it.
Rocky kicks off the remix, spitting a few lines that incorporates a quick shout out to Queen Bey and returns later for a longer verse, where we learn about some mistakes he made in previous relationships. Gotta love honest songwriting.
“Like Beyoncé, they’re getting by or they get embodied
So Sasha Fierce, a whole lot of tears
Rolling down her cheeks, crying till she’s sound asleep
Preach, pray that today is not a lonely one
You gotta know you not the only one”
Sam Smith recently announced a world tour that includes Australia!! I’ll definitely be there. Will you be attending?
