As Scottish soul singer Emili Sandé admitted on her recent DJBooth debut, navigating the business side of the music industry can sometimes make her feel like a Clown. In moments like those, the moral support of a significant other can make all the difference. On new U.S. promo single By My Side, an updated version of a cut previously released in the UK, the artist lets her guy know just how happy she is to have a good man in her life, celebrating his loyalty and steadfastness over driving, piano-led production by Hugo Chegwin. In addition to the headliner’s earnest verses and explosive chorus, this rendition of the record boasts newly-added guest bars from a characteristically on-point (if slightly hoarse) Kendrick Lamar. The original, Lamar-less incarnation of Next to Me can be found on Emili’s debut set, Our Version of Events, available now in stores and online.
