Maroon 5 keyboardist PJ Morton has joined forces with Stevie Wonder and Nas on his new single, ‘Be Like Water’. The track is set to appear on Morton’s upcoming album, Watch the Sun, alongside previous offerings ‘Please Don’t Walk Away’ and ‘My Peace’. Give it a listen below.
PJ Morton previously teamed up with Stevie Wonder on his 2013 track ‘Only One’. “‘Be Like Water’ was definitely a phrase I had heard before,” Morton said in a press release. “Bruce Lee made it famous of course, but it didn’t fully connect with me until we were all shut down and I had to pivot in my life like we all had to. After I finished writing it I could only hear Nas’ voice on it. For him to actually get on it blew my mind. Then when Stevie Wonder agreed to be on it and to learn that Nas had always wanted to work with Stevie, it was beyond my wildest dreams!”
Watch the Sun arrives on April 29 via Morton Records. It also features appearances from Alex Isley, Chronixx, El DeBarge, Jill Scott, JoJo, Wale, and more.
