“You wanna meet me downtown / and i got visions that we could entertain.” Former Friends frontwoman and Dev Hynes’ collaborator/partner Samantha Urbani has released a follow-up to her thumping dance track “1 2 3 4” from earlier this year. Her new song “U Know I Know” is slick and groovy, but Urbani’s sultry vocals and lyrics about hope in the face of heartbreak introduce a heavy poignancy to the song. With lines like, “To feel like heaven can bind you / that terrifies you, turns clouds into flames / and you may walk away but never forever,” Urbani combines theatrical romance with intimate vulnerability. The catchy hooks and the beautiful vocal layering cinch this track as a definite pop jam for this summer.
