I Believe in Love by Zainab Sule

Zainab Sule is back again with her latest single I Believe in Love. We last saw her in April with the song Adrenaline, a cracker of a song that I gave a 7.5/10. Now, she’s back with her new album Hypersonic, was released a few short months ago. The Nigerian songstress lifts spirits with her usual style and pizzazz in this latest tune befitting of a Hollywood movie.

Firstly, the form of this song was absolutely perfect. It began with two verses in succession, using piano chords, the occasional synth sound and a basic drum beat to highlight the melody. As the verses went on you could feel tension rising, which was relieved when the driving beat of the chorus burst through. I thought the beat groupings (three, three then two) were a perfect way of keeping the song moving and the tempo steady, with the decisive string accompaniment adding a touch of harmony into the mix. Towards the end, just before the last chorus a choir was added which was exactly what the track needed. My only criticism of the piece was the amount of echo on the vocals, to me it was a little too much. I think dialling it back when the first chorus began would have been a better option.

Yet again, Sule has produced a stellar track. I think it has such potential, that it could easily feature in a movie soundtrack when the protagonist makes a life changing decision to follow their heart. I give it 9.5/10.
