Sampha's '(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano' Is An Instant Classic

    Sampha is a hard artist to pin down. He's constantly mixing R&B, electronic, and pop music together into something so unique and genuine. This genuine sound is what comes through crystal clear on his latest release,"(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano." This song acts as a wistful ode to the piano that sat in his South London home since the age of 3, but also, as a recount of Sampha's feelings towards leaving home and the loss of his mother. Sampha took to Facebook to dedicate this song to his mother, Binty Sisay, who passed away in 2015. According to The Fader, "He wrote it not long after he'd moved back to Morden to be with her in what would be her final months."

    "(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano" is an unprocessed, delicate composition that delivers a statement which is rare for most popular artists of today to make; utter vulnerability. This song forgets Frank Ocean, Solange, Kanye, and all of Sampha's past collaborators, to give us assurance that he is much more than a producer or writer. This track will be featured on his upcoming album Process, which is set to drop February 3rd via Young Turks. In the meantime, Sampha will be performing this Friday on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and has announced a world tour:
