Daniel Caesar has returned with “Do You Like Me?,” his first solo release since last year’s collaboration with Badbadnotgood, “Please Do Not Lean.” The singer shared that the song is about a woman in his life who he has deep respect for and could possibly double as a hint as to what fans can expect from the highly-anticipated follow-up to 2019’s Case Study 01.

SG Lewis – AudioLust & HigherLove


SG Lewis’ second studio LP is an in-depth exploration of intertiwining contemporary and classic sounds, particularly on standout cut from the project called “Oh Laura.” SG Lewis describes the new song as the “most different to any of my previous work. I wrote it with TEED, who also co-produced it at Sleeper Sounds in London, and later rewrote the verses with Ed Drewett, and it has been stuck in my head since the day we made it. It’s a fictitious tale of betrayal, and is heavily inspired by 80’s pop music.”
