Emotions run high on Drake‘s Nothing Was The Same standout “Too Much.” What you heard actually samples the original version as sang by the featured artist Sampha, who returns today with his solo take of the record.

The hypnotizing chord progressions heard on Drizzy’s song are gone. Now, soft piano keys dominate the track’s sonic landscape. Well, that and some incredible singing courtesy of the UK crooner and pianist.

If you enjoy what you hear, we suggest that you check out Sampha’s debut EP DualSoundcloud, and his contributions to SBTRKT’s self-titled album. “Too Much” and a new record called “Happen” will release as a double single November 12 via Young Turks.

Hear “Too Much” below.
