Last November, Mary J. Blige and British singer-songwriter Sam Roman collaborated on “Overthinking,” a duet for his album following his contributions for her 2014 London Sessions. Now, following the release of his third EP Silence, Roman has released the full track, a slow burning-wavy duet about the complexities of a relationship.
On the song, Roman believes the problems stem from thinking too much, while Blige denies that’s the case. “There ain’t no use in overthinking love / The minute that you do it’s over,” sings Romans, while Blige blames him. “It’s not love when you only see things your way,” she sings on her verse.
