We love unexpected sonic delights, which is probably why we got so jittery with excitement when we caught an NBA All-Star television advertisement over the weekend featuring Jessie Reyez’s Great One. As discerning visitors to IHM, you probably know how much we love the Toronto phenom’s music, and how glad we are to be watching her star rise these days. Well, Jessie just surprised us with another appearance, this time as a guest on a song from Scottish singer songwriter Lewis Capaldi, himself an artist we’ve been championing often as of late. The two unite on Rush, a poignant song which they co-wrote and perform on together. Lewis says the song is about heartbreak and the weird headspace you occup after the end of a relationship, where “you feel like absolute shit and, if you’re being honest with yourself, you hope the other person feels just as bad.” Both artists have some amazing pipes, so their vocal turns on the alt ballad is superb. Rush follows on Lewis Cpaldi’s October 2017 debut EP, Bloom. Both these two talents have a very bright year ahead of them, and as a team, they deliver sweeping magnificence on Rush. The single is available from iTunes, here.
