Berlin-via-Toronto singer/songwriter Sway Clarke II dropped his infectious "I Don't Need Much" last year, and finally started to focus on his solo career after writing for other artists for quite some time. Then came his debut single, “Secret Garden,” last April; its staccato, bouncy, piano-driven production immediately appealed to fans, and introduced him to even more.

Today, "Secret Garden" gets a new verse from Chicago up-and-coming artist "Tink," who has been in the studio working with everyone from Timbaland to DJ Dahi and more on her debut album. Tink's serenading the girls with yet another power anthem, and it's perfect; lines like "Everything that smells good ain't meant to be in your garden/Run wild and be free, put the boys on your to-do list" are just another example of how empowering Tink's verses can be.

The version with Tink will be available on Sept. 2 via his imprint, Liars & Thieves. For now, stream it below:
