Artist: Robbie Williams
Single: Be A Boy
Robbie Williams is back this week with his new single Be a Boy, which is the third single to be lifted from his latest album Take The Crown.
I will happily admit that I have not been a big fan of the singles that Williams that has released so far from his new album but Be A Boy is a bit of an electric/pop gem.
It is not very often that the third single lifted from an album is stronger than the first but that is absolutely the case with this track - it really is as catchy as hell.
There is a very definite beat to Be A Boy but it is not one of those beats that dominates the track instead it enhances it and gives the song a bit more oomph.
There is a nice balance between the electronic and pop elements and the mix of both really does give this track an infectious energy. The saxophone is also a nice and rather unexpected touch.
Williams keeps the vocal totally straightforward - he shows of that rich and deep quality to his voice in the verses before he lets rip in the chorus.
Be A Boy is a song that you would expect from Robbie Williams and it will be one of the tracks from the new album that will play so well live.
Williams has been guilty of releasing some not so great tracks in recent years but Be A Boy sees him back on his game - this is a song that seriously will get stuck in your head.
