  • Track: Whole Damn Year
  • Producer: Naughty Boy
  • Album: The London Sessions

A messy breakup never fails to leave behind a few emotional cuts and bruises; when there's also physical damage to contend with, the healing process requires an even greater amount of time. On her latest single, a raw and poignant ballad penned by UK songstress Emeli Sandé, the R&B vet pleads with a new man to take things slowly, since she's still recovering from a past relationship that left her battered in body and soul. Over Booth-featured beatsmith Naughty Boy's gentle, piano-led instrumental, she admits, “It took a Whole Damn Year to repair my body... it's been a bad five years.” For this cut, Disclosure collab Right Now and much more, cop MJB's The London Sessions LP when it hits record stores and online retailers December 2.
