Never Be A Right Time

Album: At Your Inconvenience (2011)
Charted: 35

Songfacts®:

  • This the second single by British rapper Professor Green, from his sophomore album, At Your Inconvenience. The Alex 'Cores' Hayes produced track tells the story of a failed relationship and the pain of a break-up. The song was made available as a digital download in the United Kingdom on January 22, 2012.
  • The song features vocals from English singer-songwriter Ed Drewett, who previously featured on the Professor's hit, "I Need You Tonight." Green told Irish State Broadcaster RTÉ: "I had the idea for ages. Ed was on tour with me so I got Ed to sing it because when I was singing it I couldn't really make sense of it and it sounded really good once he did. Then we eventually got in the studio and we did 'Never Be a Right Time' and 'Today I Cried' in the same day."
  • Rather than being about one particular person, Green took different parts of different relationships. He told RTÉ: "I still find that intimacy [on records] easy and I think it's the most important part of music. The only artists I ever really attach myself to and I really got into were honest and open. They gave me something to listen to and understand and be intrigued by. They never gave you everything, but enough to really keep you interested."
