H.E.R. grabbed Bryson Tiller for "Could've Been" last year, but the smooth single is getting an official remix. A number of artists have attempted to remix this track themselves, such as BJ The Chicago. There's just something about H.E.R.'s nostalgic love ballad that brings out powerful emotion. She enlists Tone Stith for the remix, which doesn't stray from the feeling of the original.
Tone Stith's vibe on the track meshes well with H.E.R.'s. He hits extreme highs vocally while highlighting his emotional lows. It would have been nice to hear more of a variation on the remix, but the song rides none the less. Stith is a good swap for Tiller, but both versions of the songs are on point.
Every time I close my eyes I see your face
Should I hit you up or keep giving you space
I’m about, to somebody’s taking up my place
I know deep down inside I'm making a mistake
