To call this a cover is to REALLY be generous with the term cover. Remix doesn’t even fit; this is an entirely new song that was inspired by sung hook of Chandler Road over a reworking of the second half of the song production. And that’s not a knock. This is a great song. Maryann has turned a song that was essentially about Gambino’s come-up and career and turned it into a sexy love song about making it through the hard times. With a gentle tone, Maryann’s voice is invitingly sweet and yet she rides the beat like a pro with adlibs that don’t distract and minimalist harmonies.
A loosie that is meant to promote her upcoming album Saturn Return and hot on the heels of the excellent Futuristic Always, Maryann seems to gearing up for something special. We can’t wait!
