He takes the 1991 Bonnie Raitt classic, “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and revamps it entirely to a vibrant slow jam.

Just as heartbreaking as the original, Giraffage injects some R&B elements. You get a clicking, scattered hi-hat, a quintessential finger snap, and chimes when needed.

Bonnie Raitt’s voice is dropped an octave which makes her vocals seem more painful and endearing than the original.

The breath is clearer, and the vocals feel as though it is pulling you deep into your soul.

It fits perfectly under Giraffage’s lush textures he creates with his beats. It matches the perfect 90’s piano sound he puts underneath it. The track never builds up, nor takes itself a part. Instead, Giraffage expertly allows the vocal transitions of the verse and chorus to guide the overall feeling of the track. Because of this, you can find yourself listening to this on repeat for a while before realizing you’ve become hooked.
