Wiley (featuring Emeli Sande) - Never Be Your Woman (new video!)

Long a fan of Wiley, it's no surprise that his latest venture, a "cover me, sampling" song with many influential beats behind it, was prone to end up on my pages.


Let's look back at 1997 first. White Town sampled jazz singer Al Bowlly's 1930's trumpet line in his song My Woman, for their own updatedly-late-90's jam, Your Woman. Now, over thirteen years later, Wiley has jumped on board the female-driven ditty by paying homage to the unmistakebale notes with his song, Never Be Your Woman.

Featuring sultry vocals from newcomer Emeli Sande, Wiley gets grimey with his version of this fantastic "love letter to breakups". Video for the track has just been unleashed, so get to watching it now!



The video uses Shy FX's edit of the track, which (if I'm not mistaken and only immediately recognized thanks to this), is pulling/sampling some serious Nightcrawlers' beats. Can you hear it? 

For your reference, I'm giving you a ton of material to sort and sift through. Samples!
