Tori Kelly Releases ‘Hollow’ Remix With Big Sean
The original song, in which Kelly sings about fragility and her need for love, was released last month. She relayed that the track was inspired by her connection with God. "'Hollow,' for me, is very directly connected to me and my faith -- it’s like my love song to God. I tried to fill that hole with a bunch of only things, and I just know that Jesus is the only one that can fill it," she said.
But on the remix, the two artists show chemistry as the G.O.O.D. Music rhymer turns it into a classic love song for his bae. "I know you've been up at night / Trying to sleep with one eye open / Crying out enough tears you can fill up the Atlantic Ocean / Don’t front being home alone we learn this from Macaulay Culkin / So I’m just waiting on you," he delivers.
"Let's take it back to the old days / Head downtown and light the city up," Sean Don continues before saying "Just pick a date and it's date night."
His compliments are on point too -- and very blush-worthy. "'Cause you got that phenomenal, most honorable, got me falling, domino / Take you home to mama though, you know," he rhymes.
While both versions make a beautiful song, fans on Twitter are split on which one is better. Some simply placed a heart eye emoji next to the song title in their tweet. Unfortunately, others aren't feeling the vibe.
"I love Tori and her new song 'Hollow' but that Big Sean feature didn't cut it for me... His verse was cool but that song is better solo IMO," a critic tweeted.
