Song Reviews: Beyonce, Zayn, Rihanna, Flo Rida, and Future

There are tons of new songs recently and here are my reviews with those songs:

Beyonce- Formation
It’s been quite a long time since Beyonce released a single. It seems she is back with this new song “Formation” which has been highly controversial. The song which talks about discrimination against black people, Louisiana, police brutality, etc. received backlash as well as its music video. She is even accused of being a racist. The song’s structure is hip-hop and R&B and reminds me of her own song “7/11” and I don’t think the sound is something new compared to her other songs.

Zayn- Pillowtalk
Finally, Zayn got to release his first ever single as a solo artist after almost one year of leaving One Direction. The song is about in a relationship which feels like a paradise and warzone, according to its lyrics, which simply means the relationship is strained. Zayn finally got to take control of his own sound which is R&B with electronic sound.

Rihanna ft. Drake- Work
Rihanna is finally back with a single for her new album “Anti”. The song which she collaborated again with Drake after some singles they released in the past already accessed the top 5 in many territories. The song wasn’t just as good as her past carrier single songs, though it is catchy. The phrase “work, work, work, work, …” was just too overused.

Flo Rida- My House
The song may be released a few months ago but it just gaining a momentum at this moment as it finally reached the US top 5. The song is a mid-tempo R&B hip-hop song and it is undeniably catchy.

Future ft. The Weeknd- Low Life
Rapper Future this time collaborated with R&B singer The Weeknd and the song sounds like exactly the fusion of the two artists. The song which is in slow-tempo is something you can hear from old records of The Weeknd.
