Sampha, the incredible voice on Drake’s “Too Much,” has released his own solo version of the Nothing Was the Same standout. Featuring the same opening sequence, this rendition hears the British crooner expand on his soulful verse and stirring piano work without the bass, snares and, of course, raps. Sonically, it’s obviously much skinnier than the final cut but, boy, does Sampha shine.
“Too Much” will be released with a new single, “Happen,” on November 12 via Young Turks. In the meantime, check out Sampha’s short but sweet Dual EP here.
