On this Thursday when there's a lot going on in the world, up-and-coming duo Lo Boii is here with a reprieve in the form of their new single "Floor Seats."

The velvet cut, which interpolates Eric Clapton's "Change the World," is officially out Friday (April 19), but it's premiering today on Variance.

"I think this song is about when you know a relationship is a sacrifice, but it's a love so beautiful that you feel lucky to make it," says the duo, which is made up of industry vets, producer-writer Aalias and writer-vocalist Corey Latif. "As far as writing the song, there's this wonderful moment you get to, because you've put in those thousands of hours with a creative partner, and the song almost writes itself."

While Lo Boii is certainly a new endeavor, the names behind it aren't. Aalias co-produced Eminem and Rihanna's Grammy-winning hit "The Monster" and has worked on music for the likes of Bebe Rexha, DJ Snake, Kevin Garrett and Robin Schulz. Latif, mentored by Teddy Pendergrass and twice nominated for a Grammy, wrote Usher's "Crash" and has worked with Faith Evans, The Roots, Snakehips and Chris Brown, among others.

As they continue their next chapter as Lo Boii, "Floor Seats" is really a spellbinding listen. Hear it below.
