I had “Girls Need Love” on repeat all day every day when it dropped back in 2018. It’s such a dope track, from its beat, to its lyrics, vocal arrangement and of course its chords.
This track does something you don’t hear very often these days in R&B. It has three distinct chord progressions, one for each section – verse, pre-chorus and chorus, well what I’m calling the chorus; it has a pretty unique arrangement. The song is only 2 minutes long.
But this keeps the track interesting, it’s always developing and progressing. In this weeks video we look at the third section in what I’m rightly or wrongly calling the chorus .
So as mentioned in the video above, this track is in the key of F#m. 6-7-#7-1 4-2-#7-1. Where I’ve played a # 7 you can also play a 5. Download this chord progression as a MIDI file.
