Martin Jensen & James Arthur Join Forces On “Nobody”
Edit: The post has been updated with the trippy video, which finds a man struggling to connect with the woman of his dreams. Watch it below.
James Arthur is no stranger to club collaborations, lending his soulful voice to Rudimental’s “Sun Comes Up” and Marshmello’s “You Can Cry.” The Brit now joins forces with Danish DJ Martin Jensen for a blurry-eyed banger called “Nobody.” The track recounts a rather shit night out that is saved by a chance encounter. “Dressed up for tonight, there no one to impress,” the “Say You Won’t Let Go” singer laments over rubbery synths. “Standing in lines ’til I smell like cigarettes.” But then he catches something, or more specifically someone, in the corner of his eye.
“There’s something about you, you steal the room,” James beams. “I can’t believe I’ve never seen nobody, nobody like you.” That leads us to a surprisingly bonkers drop. Once Martin gets that out of his system, the narrative continues. “Fuck it, I’ll stay ’til I’m the last one left,” our hero decides. “For one chance to say, ‘You’re different than the rest.’ To see how it all turns out, you’ll have to listen to “Nobody” below. This could be a big song.
