This weeks songs are:

1) Beyoncé- Mine ft. Drake

Beyoncé (2013) was overall a great album and one of my favourite songs from that album is Mine featuring one of the worlds best rappers, Drake. Beyoncé talks about motherhood, relationships and marriage but also reassures her lover that he is forever her’s no matter what the tabloids and newspapers say about their relationship. Drake’s verse is centred around the fact that her still has feelings for this girl so he’s “running back” to her because there’s no one that can compare to her. Check out this song:

This song was inspired by western films and features similar progressive chord patterns as Daft Punk’s song, ‘Get Luck’. Lovers of the sun reached no.1 in the UK Singles chart in 2014 but reached no.3 in the US Dance Club songs. I really like the great vocals in this song and the awesome mix between country and EDM.
