British soul force Aaron Taylor is in the presence of vocal royalty on his new single “Don’t Leave Me Alone.”
Featuring seasoned chanteuse Lalah Hathaway, this melodramatic outing is dedicated to a loved one who plays a pivotal role in one’s life.
While Taylor’s hollow voice pastes a unique texture to the languishing ode, it’s Hathaway’s smokey tone that takes the heavy feelings of yearning up a notch.
“In the simple things, you give me my wings / You know I can’t do this all on my own / It’s clear I need you in my life to go on,” Taylor croons on the opening verse.
In these days where R&B continues to be considered a dying genre, “Don’t Leave Me Alone” is something to wake up those who desire soul and substance in music.
