In 2019, Alabama Shakes singer-songwriter Brittany Howard dropped off her acclaimed album Jaime, which went on to secure multiple Grammy nominations. Now, Howard will be dropping off Jaime Reimagined on Friday, featuring updated songs with appearances from Bon Iver, BadBadNotGood, EarthGang, and Childish Gambino. It’s the latter who shines on Howard’s latest release, the official “Childish Gambino Version” of “Stay High.”

Though it might not be the full-fledged Gambino return that some fans have been hoping for, it’s always welcome to hear the dulcet tones of Donald Glover. Shifting Howard’s arrangement into digital territory, Gambino flexes his smooth falsetto over warm synthesizers and strings. Stylistically, it feels as if Gambino is comfortable over tracks like this, and perhaps we’ll see him exploring this sound further if and when he drops a new album.

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Brittany Howard, Childish Gambino]
I already feel like doing it again, honey
‘Cause once you know, then you know
And you don’t wanna go home
Back to where it is that you come from

[Refrain: Brittany Howard]
I just want to stay high with you

[Verse 2: Brittany Howard, Childish Gambino]
‘Cause where I come from
Everybody frowns and walks around with
That old ugly thing on their face
‘Cause where I come from
We work hard and we grind and we hustle all day, don’t we?
(Yes, we do)
There comes a time, there comes a time
At night, where we come play
And there’ll be smiling, laughing, jumping, clapping
Yell and holler, just feel, just feel great, yeah yes

[Refrain: Brittany Howard]
I just want to stay high with you
With you

[Verse 3: Brittany Howard, Childish Gambino]
So, don’t question my state of mind
I’m doing wonderful, just fine, thank you
(Thank you)
Everything is everything and everything is beautiful
(How did you get like that to?)
See, all I do (is keep it cool) and don’t worry ’bout what everyone is doing, no
I already feel like doing it again, honey

[Outro: Brittany Howard, Childish Gambino]
I just wanna stay high
I just wanna stay high
I just wanna stay high with you (Ooo darling), with you
With you, with you
With you (Damn)
With you (Damn)
With you
With you
