In the four appearances Jay Electronica has seemingly made in 2016, Emeli Sandé’s “Garden” really plants itself in the listener’s memory banks. The New Orleans, Louisiana MC/producer appeared on the tune last month, alongside Áine Zion. It’s a different kind of look from Jay Elect’ than just spitting bars with fellow Rap peers. Here, his verses penetrate beside the sweet vocals of his counterparts. Within, the Roc Nation artist reflects on the thrills of love—the euphoric highs, the jagged falls to the low, and the courage in the risk. The man who has been attached to several high profile relationships also illustrates the kind of love that makes the risks worthwhile, pointing to Purple Rain (as a motorcycle appears in the video to match the lines). Tight embraces, money-guns, and menacing stares only add to the dreamy affair.

Chance The Rapper & Jay Electronica Combine For A Video That Is Truly Great

The fall song gets a visual, with Jay, Emeli, and Áine in the garden, literally. Slow tracking shots capture the parts of the song, and the mood of the moment. Electronica puts in his gold fronts, as he’s done in the past, as he kicks one of his key installments for this year.

This belongs to Sandé’s just-released Virgin Records LP Long Live The Angels.
