The powerful married couple of Jay-Z and Beyonce join forces to deliver a serene anthem for the warm weather. "SUMMER," is an R&B/Hip-Hop track about a harmonious couple (Jay and Beyonce) expressing their love for each other. The instrumental, produced by Cool & Dre, has some authentic percussion, warm horns, funky string sections, and atmospheric keys. In addition to that, Beyonce delivers a powerful and soulful vocal performance as Jay Z yells "let it breathe" in the background.
Also, Jay-Z delivers a great verse with slick lyricism and an interesting flow that matches the slow instrumental. So, this track is definitely perfect for summer picnics (hence the title of the track). The laidback instrumental and smooth vocals from The Carters will compliment the sounds of nature as listeners soak up the sun. Overall, "SUMMER" is one of the best Beyonce and Jay-Z collaborations, making it worth a listen.
