Bars & Melody are a teenage rap duo comprising Leondre Devries and Charlie Lenehan. The pair came to the public attention after finishing in third place on the 2014 series of Britain's Got Talent. This is their first single after signing a record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco.
The song is based around the lyrics and music of Twista's single "Hope," which peaked at #25 on the UK singles chart in 2005. The original track mainly focused on the American rapper's view on the War on Terrorism, but Leondre wrote new anti-bullying lyrics after being relentlessly picked-on in school by a group of boys. "For me, this whole experience has been about connecting with other kids who are going through what I went through," he said. "I've talked to so many people and it's given me an amazing confidence and strength and it just makes me amazingly happy to be able to be in this position to do so much more."
Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
