Sam Lewis, aka SG Lewis, has released a new song featuring Robyn and Channel Tres titled ‘Impact’. It’s the second single from his upcoming full-length debut, following ‘Chemicals’. Check it out below.
“The chemistry between Channel and Robyn is so powerful, and creates something so unique,” SG Lewis said in a statement. “Channel is an artist I believe will go on to create a musical legacy as important as the one Robyn has already created, and to have the two of them on this record together is insane. I hope it provides some release and euphoria in a time where it’s hard to come by.”
Speaking about the inspiration behind the song, Channel Tres explained: “’Impact’ is about how someone can come into your life and completely change you either for better or worse. In this instance it was for the better and I’m going through the emotions of denying something that’s obviously good for me but the hurt I’ve been through in my past causes me to put up defense mechanisms. While I’m putting up the defenses, the person trying to love me pursues me consistently and this impacts my life in so many ways.”
Robyn added that Lewis “made this instant thing, it’s a special skill to make a song that hits you right away the way ‘Impact’ does. The track just gave me the feels and it wasn’t ́t hard to write a chorus to it, especially with Channels vocals on there already.”
SG Lewis started making waves with his trilogy of EPs, Dusk (2018), Dark (2018), and Dawn (2019), which led to collaborations with the likes of Khalid, Dua Lipa, and Clairo. Robyn is set to appear on Jonsí’s upcoming album, while Channel Tres will feature on Disclosure’s new album ENERGY.
