Slow mornings vibe and spoken words intro, Sarah Hemi and Mondo Loops' new collaboration "Expected It" is beauty in the shape of a sound.

Sarah Hemi is a New Zealand-born r&b and soul singer, currently based in Kyoto Japan. Driven by her musical upbringing since an young age, as a Maori-Japanese artist she often explores the 2 cultures she has been raised with. I absolutely love the intimate vibe and lyrics of the track. Sarah writes about how she expected someone to do her wrong and how she was ready to write a song about it. I guess sometimes we just sense these things from afar.

Her vocals are perfectly enhanced by Mondo Loops' lush chords - a UK-based producer who has already proven he's one of a kind when it comes to soul-driven beats.
