Riff: The Internet – “Higher Times”

Sep 24, 2013

Can’t give up on love/No time to waste more time/Hold her to that feeling/Move to higher times

from Higher Times lyrics by The Internet

An abstract collaboration between two of R&B’s finest. Jesse Boykins III is professional enough to shake Syd free of her reservations without alienating her on her own album. It’s Jessie’s stage for sure, but he makes sure to build off of Syd’s ethos, which is to never give up on love; [LISTEN].
