S.A.M & Pritt Share New Single ‘Drowning’

South London-based rising R&B star Pritt has teamed up with North West London rapper & lyrical connoisseur S.A.M to deliver a gorgeous new single Drowning, taken from their dual concept EP, Take 2, out now!

Drowning is a relatable song about being in a toxic relationship and ending up breaking up because they can't see eye to eye. I am really enjoying how the song is built like S.A.M and Pritt are having a conversation and how their vocals fit beautifully together. Pritt champions and channels her Tamil heritage whilst S.A.M includes influences of Afro Caribbean and Western Sounds, making this song quite a memorable and enthralling listening experience. Drowning is a great piece of Contemporary R&B with infectious melodies and an overall warm, laid-back atmosphere perfect for a relaxing day. Check it out below!



Speaking about the song, S.A.M said, 

I remember watching this documentary one day and just thinking that the sea can be the most peaceful place to be on a summers day but in a storm can be the most destructive. It just reminded me of a toxic relationship. Sometimes you can try find love in other people yet you still come running back and end up in a repetitive cycle of “drowning in love”. To the point it becomes too much and you just left with memories of a person. I think that’s what “Drowning” really tried to channel. The song itself was made a good two years ago but just seemed so relevant and fitting for the project. You do see a lot of joint male and female songs however, rarely do we see a whole project. This could be historic.

Pritt added,

Drowning focuses on the penultimate part of a toxic relationship, past all the heartbreak where you are nothing but done with the situation. Reminiscing the good times but the bad seems to outweigh it. The back and forth between S.A.M and Pritt sounds like a conversation, where they don’t see eye to eye eventually ending the relationship for good. They are both dragging each other down hence the title ‘Drowning’. There are only a handful of people I would choose to work with, and I’m glad S.A.M and I can share what we’ve been up to these past couple months.
