"If She Breaks Your Heart" – The Foreign Exchange

For those who are unaware, The Foreign Exchange album was released today in physical form (last week was the digital release). I am definitely honored to be a part of such a wonderful project. Soon after I completed production work on “When Everything Is New” for Little Brother, Phonte hit me back up and told me that he and Nic wanted to mess with a joint called “If She Breaks Your Heart.” When I heard it I got right to work by laying my very first idea down, which in this case happened to be the drums. The next day, sent Phonte an instrumental. We must have been in each other’s heads that day because it was exactly what he had envisioned for the song. A couple weeks later, he sent the joint back to me with YahZarah’s vocals on it and LAWD have mercy! I was always a fan of Yahz’s singing, but hearing her voice on the raw instrumental version of this song gave me a newfound respect for her talents…her vocals on that song still gives me goosebumps and I have heard the joint at least 500 times. Once the first part of the song was finished, Marc Mac from 4Hero arranged the strings on top (another LAWD have mercy moment) and Nicolay added the change to the end that was just ridiculous. The result… track #8 on the Leave It All Behind album by The Foreign Exchange“If She Breaks Your Heart” produced by Zo! & Nicolay
