London soul singer Kwabs once prayed for love, but his ecstatic new single demands you fight for it. The track is one of his most upbeat ever: in the hands of Soulection's up-and-comer Sam Gellaitry, though, the production takes a moodier turn, replacing piano stabs with wriggling synth lines and a propulsive 80s pop rhythm with a simple, low-slung beat. Basically, Sam G's dense, plush production sound couldn't make a better match for Kwabs' velvet vocal, and you'd be doing yourself a favor if you listen to it in the player below. You can also pre-order Kwabs' debut album Love + War, out September 11th via Atlantic, here.
