President Street’s ‘Something to Believe’ sees them back on top again, even in the face of a global pandemic.
A melding of genres, the song begins with an isolated vocal, before a trap-inspired drum track kicks in. The chorus is victorious and full of wonder, sounding like someone suddenly realising how beautiful the world can truly be. It’s reminiscent of classic R&B tunes such as Jordin Sparks’ ‘No Air’ and are carried off with the same sense of emotional catharsis.
It’s a statement of defiance; the song itself was inspired by the fallout of a toxic relationship, in which vocalist Ruby proclaims her independence and strength – and, in listening, we are enabled to find our own.
