Los Angeles-based British singer-songwriter SG Lewis has released his first new single since collaborating with Dua Lipa on her critically acclaimed new album Future Nostalgia. "Chemicals," streaming at the top of the page, is a slinky poolside summer jam featuring a lead synth line from N.E.R.D.'s Chad Hugo.
“‘Chemicals’ is about being convinced to try something new by someone you are infatuated with, and the emotions that follow,” Lewis said in a press release. “It's about feeling helpless knowing the control that person has over you, but knowing that deep down you love that fact. The song is written about one specific night out I experienced in London a while back. I started the song late one night in L.A. with Julian Bunetta, then Steph Jones helped us lyric the song the next day. Finally, Julian and I were working with Chad (Hugo, N*E*R*D/The Neptunes) the next week, and we got him to play the synth line you hear.”
