Samantha Urbani’s musical outfit Friends has undergone a facelift, as evident from their new single “The Way.” The group most known form “I’m His Girl” returns with “The Way,” a slick, 80s indebted R&B power ballad. It’s an outstanding throwback single, complete with a guitar solo Prince would love to be a part of.
Some credit must go to arguably the best producer right now, Dev Hynes, who’s work with Sky Ferreira, Solange, and Mutya Keisha Siobhan has him in high demand for his talents. “The Way” is the biggest departure yet for Hynes, yet still maintains the assuredness of his past productions.
“The Way” in single form will be released by Lucky Number Music soon.
