2) The Weeknd – The Morning

The Morning is one of my favourite songs by The Weeknd and it appeared on his album, House Of Ballons (2011). This song is about mainly about prostitution and strippers and it states that they only have one motive which is money! The Weeknd emerges from a night full of drugs and drinking and reflects on his musical progression as well as the girls he’s usually with. The use of drugs is a major theme in this album. Check out this great song below:

3) Maxwell – This Woman’s Work

This is a cover of Kate Bush’s original song which is about the troubles involved in childbirth. I really like Maxwell’s MTV unplugged cover of this song, the mixture of high and low vocals honestly send chills down my spine! I first heard this song while watching one of my favourite films, Love & Basketball, and I instantly fell in love with it. Maxwell re-recorded this song and put it on his album, Now (2001). This song peaked at no.58 on the Billboard Hot 100. Please check out this beautiful song below:
