Atlanta up-and-comer Raury is back with “Like A Star,” a Donnie Trumpet-produced new track that samples Corinne Bailey Rae’s song of the same title. Predictably, it’s nothing short of gorgeous.
The cosmic new offering finds Raury lamenting the perfections and pitfalls of young love, overlayed by velvety, seductive R&B vibes. The lyrics are at times solemn (“don’t dig your grave and forget that I lay here”) and at others tongue-in-cheek (“her name’s the same but emojis are gone”), but always hard-hitting.
Plug in to the stellar (no pun intended) new song, below.
I’ve always been in love with Corinne Bailey Rae so I had to sample her
