Kwabs 'Pray For Love' Produced By Plan B

Kwabs teams up with Plan B on his latest single "Pray For Love," due out May 5th.

Just a month has passed since Kwabs' chapel-room, electro-crooning on the Wrong Or Right EP. It's only fitting that the next chapter in the Book of Kwabs would introduce a more overt element of religiosity to a catalogue and voice that has thus far rendered comparisons with gospel music. On "Pray For Love," which premiered today on MistaJam, dungeony percussion introduces a further level to the demon-fighting depths of Kwabs' pipes. The track sees London's Ben Drew (aka Plan B) stepping out of his MC shoes to cook up grandiose-snared production for his former tour-mate. "Pray For Love," which you can listen to below and catch the lyrics over here, is due out May 5th. We presume it will find a spot on Kwabs' forthcoming (and potentially still in-the-works) full-length debut.
