B. Smyth vs. Emeli Sande – R&B Sound Off
Now Smyth’s song will go up against Emeli Sande‘s ‘Next to Me,’ which features West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar. Appearing on her debut album, ‘Our Version of Events,’ the Scottish songstress remixed the track, which reveals all the reasons why she’s got a good man whom she can always rely on.
Meanwhile Lamar’s verse asks for some advice on how to get into a love like that. “Tough love, please help me / Please help me / I’m on my knees, please help me / I need you to tell me / Ain’t nothing bigger than you / I thought a Benz would do, but nothing bigger than you / Ain’t nothing bigger than truth,” he raps.
