U.K.-based singers Jorja Smith and Maverick Sabre are each rising stars in their own right. But put them together and the sonic slow burn only intensifies.

Maverick Sabre-- complete with a wistful video featuring both artists. This R&B ballad is sophisticated and sexy in nature. It's riddled with riffs that invite you to listen intently. Its brass drums, low bassline and poetic snaps scatter loosely throughout. "Slow down won't you come around" the singers repeat in between verses — a call-out to past lovers in hopes that they'll return soon.
