Tipped as One To Watch in 2019 by tastemakers aplenty, fast-rising talent Samm Henshaw has shared the official lyric video for his infectious new single, “Church” featuring EARTHGANG from J. Cole’s Dreamville imprint.
Hypnotic and heavenly, Samm’s robust delivery glides over a stomping groove and bluesy beat before culminating on the commanding chant, “Wake up and get yourself to church, yeah!”
With a meaning deeper than surface, The song’s written from the perspective of a younger, teenage Samm and addresses the idea of finding one’s own identity within a religious household, but with a lot of fun and swagger and a ‘if you know, you know’ relatability.
Samm describes this as: “My fight with my parents was, ‘Listen, if you really want me to be into this, and get it, let me do it for myself.’ But eventually in my own time, I found my way back. Now, I go pretty much every Sunday!”
