Emeli Sande is no stranger to the TDE crew. Back in February, the Scottish sensation nabbed Kendrick Lamar for the remix to ‘Next to Me,’ off her ‘Our Version of Events’ album. Now she calls on a fellow Black Hippy member to add his lyrical touch to a new track.

Sande recruits Ab-Soul for the remix to ‘My Kind of Love,’ also on her debut LP. Over a much brasher, uptempo version of the beat — perfect for some lyrical assistance — Ab-Soul delivers a verse that speaks to both his personal troubles and society as a whole.

“Even if you forget me and everything you leave behind / I never lied, I love you where there’s no space and time,” he raps, referencing ‘The Book of Soul,’ a tribute to his late girlfriend, Alori Joh, who committed suicide. Lightening the mood, Soul then shares an amusing observation of today’s youth: “She said she’d rather twerk than turn the other cheek.”

A chart-topper back in the U.K., and a top 30 album stateside, Emeli Sande’s ‘Our Version of Events’ is out now on iTunes.
