Layla Kardan – “As One”

“You keep me running back with you and nobody else here needs to know the truth. ‘Cause we’re like planets colliding together as one. You’re my blazing sun. You’ve got me spun. Now never let, never let go. You’re my one desire, take me higher.” – lyrics

‘As One’ contains a relatable storyline and lovely soul vocals. Also, the song’s slow-grinding instrumentation smells of urban soul and hip-hop elements.
