We all knew that Drake and Jorja Smith were sitting on some heat. Ever since the two artists collaborated on “Get It Together,” fans have craved more joint efforts from them. The vault has been opened, and a new Drake and Jorja Smith song began to circulate on the internet on Sunday (September 23) evening.
The new collaboration is entitled “I Could Never,” and it’s a much slower and contemplative venture than “Get It Together.” A somber piano riff sets the background for Drake’s introspective singing, and the Canadian superstar opts to leave the drums off the song altogether. The chorus is comprised of an electric guitar ran through a distortion filter, while a second guitar illuminates the emotion. “You’ve told me things/ harsh truth to my face/ I’ve been told to walk away, just know/ I could never,” sings Drake. “1,000 times I’ve fucked you in my mind, trust me I know,” he continues. “I Could Never” is reminiscent of something Drizzy would have crafted during his Take Care days.
Jorja comes in like a strike of lightning in a calm field. The strength of her vocals shines through as the instrumental turns ominous. “Could you ever be ashamed of me?” asks Smith. Check out the single here via MTV UK.
