Rising R&B chanteuse Antonique Smith is back with an emotional new song called “All We Really Have Is Now,” that will resonate with anyone in the throes of love and obsessing over what may come.
The power ballad, penned by Emeli Sande and Toby Gad, features the Grammy-nominated singer vowing to cherishing the moment she has with her lover and not worry about things that are not really important.
“And I’m so caught up making sure you stay forever / That I forgot to love the time we spent together,” she sings over acoustic guitars and orchestral strings.
Smith brings it home with the soaring chorus: “I just wanna breath in, stop second guessing, look at your smile and take it in / Try to relax and live in the moment, it’s all that we’ve got to believe in.”
“This timely song reminds you of what’s important. We’re all guilty of focusing so much on what we want, what we don’t yet have or what happened in our past, that we don’t appreciate the moment we have now,” says Smith about the song. “That moment is all we have…as tomorrow is not promised.”
“All We Really Have Is Now” is from Smith’s latest EP, Love Is Everything. You can cop it on iTunes now.
