Ghanaian singer Sofie enlists Matthew James Hemmer for a sentimental R&B duet titled “Distance”.
This happens to be the singer’s sophomore single release of the calendar year following April’s “Blur”.
Although both records are smooth R&B numbers, their tones are in stark contrast. Whereas “Blur” captures the electrifying giddy feeling of new love, “Distance” describes how alienating it is when physical or emotional distance causes tension in a relationship and the consequences.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the record, Sofie quipped: “The feeling of wanting to be close to your significant other is something we have all experienced, Matthew and I embody that beautifully on this record.”
