Beyonce - Love On Top
There's a lot of retro sounds on Beyonce's latest album, 4. Where her previous effort I Am... went for a terrifyingly empowered futuristic brand of stylish Terminator-pop, tracks like Love On Top sound like an indulgent trip through nostalgia.
Dripping in electric piano chords, a swingy beat and brass stabs, Love On Top sounds like classic MJ, the kind of song that would have been Number One for weeks back in the 80s.
Unfortunately for Beyonce, it's 2011 right now and the quaint nostalgia of Love On Top fades away into what sounds increasingly like a tired fourth single from an album that has far better songs on it.
Love On Top is released on the 12th December.
