Singer-actress Ryan Destiny has linked up with Chicago rapper Tobi Lou for a remix of her 2018 debut single, “The Same.”
The new rework features a fresh verse from Lou, who delivers groovy bars about his relationship troubles. “Same bull, different day, why we always act this way? / Why can’t we just activate? Don’t turn your back on me / We got too much history, don’t leave me in disarray,” he raps.
In the accompanying video, the duo perform the song in a lavish mansion in the desert. “I can tell you think it’s harmless / But it’s lovin’ that is hardest / If it’s easier to show than say it / Then show me so things fall in place,” Destiny sings on the chorus.
“The [remix] is about a situation with a guy who’s a constant cycle of the same lines, lies, games and little to no effort,” Destiny told Essence. “Tobi adds his perspective from a male standpoint and the two worlds are brought together in an honest but fire way, I think.”
Destiny, who got her big break as one of the lead characters on the FOX show Star, is set to appear on the forthcoming season of Freeform’s teen sitcom, Grown-ish.
