Artist on the rise Riley Clemmons has teamed up with multi-platinum selling artist Brett Young for a very special duet version of 'Godsend.' With sweeping vocals imbued with emotion the introspective song contemplates the idea that everything happens for a reason and every negative thing was an opportunity for growth. The addition of Brett’s vocals weaving with Riley’s provides a fresh perspective that while life may seem isolating, there are others going through similar struggles.
“Brett has always been one of my favorite musical storytellers,” shares Riley. “It’s a true honor to have his voice and unique perspective be a part of telling the story of ‘Godsend’ on this new version.” On working with Riley, Brett says “The first time I heard this song it really moved me and I was honored when I was asked to be part of it. I’m a big fan of Riley and excited to see what else she does next.”
“Godsend feat. Brett Young” comes from the deluxe version of Riley’s sophomore album of the same name. Since its release, Godsend, has garnered nearly 200 million worldwide streams and has produced multiple top 20 singles, solidifying Riley’s position as an artist to watch.

She continued her rise in the fall with performances on the SHEIN X ROCK THE RUNWAY virtual fashion show, the TODAY Show, and FOX & Friends.
