Arlissa vs Nas – ‘Hard To Love Somebody’

A YouTube “response” to Professor Green and Emeli Sandé’s ‘Read All About It’

A YouTube “response” to Professor Green and Emeli Sandé’s ‘Read All About It’, this song seems more like an echo. Pianos and kick drums underlay Arlissa’s shaky vocals while Nas flows about crisps. He wears a green Adidas shellsuit in the promo, presumably dressed as Jimmy Savile for Halloween. A video shouldn’t be the measure of a song’s value, but when the song is this anodyne it sure helps make it more interesting.
