Savage shows love.
Alicia Keys enlists 21 Savage for the official remix to her Miguel-assisted single “Show Me Love.” The Atlanta rapper shows a softer side on the sensual slow jam.
“I sleep in the trap and just thug, but I’d rather you show me some love,” he raps. “I’d rather you show me it’s real / I’d rather you tell me your feelings than you act like I’m trippin’ or high on the pill.”
The collaboration came from a phone call between Savage and Alicia’s husband Swizz Beatz. During their conversation, Savage mentioned that he was a fan of Alicia’s and knew all of her songs, so Swizz suggested they collaborate on the remix.
The original version of “Show Me Love” was released in September and is the first release for Alicia’s upcoming seventh studio album, due next year. “It reflects where I am today–the deeper acceptance I have of who I am as a full human being, the flaws, the pieces that I used to push aside because I wasn’t ready to embrace the anger or the fear or the crazy,” she told Harper’s Bazaar of the follow-up to 2016’s Here.
