We finally have a chance to further experience the voice behind the soulful hook of Drake’s “Too Much” hit from his current “Nothing Was The Same” album.
British producer and crooner Sampha is the voice of the hook, and has now released a solo version of the Emile Haynie-produced ballad.
Minus Drake’s bars and the original version’s beats, Sampha sings his hook and fills in the verses over a piano accompaniment.
Sampha’s version of “Too Much” will be released as a double A-side single with “Happens.” The digital version of the EP will be available on November 12, and a 7″ vinyl will be available on January 7.
