A definite highlight from Drake’s Nothing Was The Same is the Sampha-assisted “Too Much.” (Disagree? Make yourself heard in the comments section below.) While Drake does a great job on his end, it’s Sampha’s beautifully affective hook that really shines through. Lucky for us, the singer has decided to take that hook and extend it, unfurling a stunning, spine-tingling three-minute solo version backed by the soft keys of his piano.
Sampha’s mesmerizing take on “Too Much” is like one of those things that seem too good to exist, so smooth, so pristine that it sounds almost unreal. But the good news is that you can listen to it above, so there’s no need to pinch yourself. This will be released as a digital single, with “Happens” as its B-side, on November 12.
