Down On Love

Album: Talk A Good Game (2013)
  • This melodic goodbye to an ex is one of four songs on Talk a Good Game penned by R&B songwriter Kevin Cossum. Rowland told Fader magazine: "He'd write them in like 20 minutes, and once he was finished with one, I'd be like, Let's do another one! We probably did about 10 songs together, and of course we had to condense those down."
  • The Harmony Samuels produced song weaves in interpolations of the Whispers' 1987 hit "Rock Steady."
