Wretch 32 ft. Josh Kumra: 'Don't Go'

By
Wretch 32 'Don't Go'
Released on Sunday, Aug 14 2011

During our recent chat with Wretch 32, he described his new single as "not the easiest or most obvious" song to release. With a pair of top five hits and his debut album imminent, 'Why make life more difficult for yourself at such a crucial moment?' we asked. "This type of sound is what I was known for making," he said, before admitting the real reason: "I like heartfelt music." Who knew he was a big ol' softie at heart?

"Love drunk you and I would die sober/ I'm in this for forever and a day," he insists to his missus over minimal, plodding beats. While his bunny boiler tendencies might not be to everyone's taste, it's encouraging to hear there's more to him than the usual braggathons spouted by today's rap pack. "So don't go, don't leave/ Please stay with me/ You're the only thing I need to get by," guest vocalist Josh Kumra croons on the lighter-waving chorus; the result is not as instant as his previous offerings, but easily his most infectious yet.
