Off her upcoming, much-buzzed-about album Celia, Tiwa Savage has just released Temptation, featuring British pop star Sam Smith. Back then, the news of the collaboration had worked fans into euphoria, with many anticipating what Savage and Smith will sound like, two R&B powerhouses in their rights.
We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Temptation is an instant mid-tempo earworm, grounded in Savage’s unmistakable pop machinations and the Smith’s grander ideas. Singing about how they can’t resist each other;s love interest, Savage and Smith reconcile with perfect harmonies towards the end. It’s cute, romantic, and utterly affecting. Savage has since released the tracklist for Celia, and we can’t wait for August 28th.
