This track originally appeared on Theophilus London’s free mixtape, I Want You, which dropped this past summer. But now, the woozy, jazzy “Life of a Lover” reappears in remix form with new vocals from crooner Jesse Boykins III and everyone’s favorite “where is he?” rapper, Blu. The two add considerable flair to the horns-laden track, with Boykins smooth voice rounding out the hook and Blu spitting a slick verse. It’s not clear why this track didn’t make it’s way onto the release of I Want You and why we’re hearing it now. I also can’t help but be skeptical of Blu’s verse considering how tacked on and fuzzy it sounds, but hey, new Blu is new Blu.
