MJ Cole has teamed up with Kojey Radical for the first time on their superb ‘Soak It Up’.
Featuring the producer’s synonymous sparring piano chords, Cole explains the creation of the track that that ’emerged first as an instrumental’. “‘Soak It Up’ grew surprisingly quickly” he says, “The track starts out with a home-made sample and opens out into vocals from Kojey Radical which describe an ongoing relationship in turmoil. There’s love in the song but also recognition of the gripes and annoyances on each side. It was a real vibe putting it together.”
