SINGLE REVIEW: Burn The Floor by Drake Jensen feat. Rob Preuss

Drake Jensen is the kind of music artist that defies description: he’s a country singer, musician and songwriter whose music transcends genres and demographics and his latest release Burn The Floor will no doubt take this rising star to the next level of his career. Drake’s history is impressive, not only is he a country music star but he’s also a leader in the LGBTQ community and with the launch of his debut album, On My Way To Finding You in 2011, the first video featured an LGBTQ love theme, which caughtthe attention of Andy Towle of Towleroad, who named him one of the Top 50 Comings Out of 2012. Since then, he’s released three studio albums: OUTlaw in 2013, Retro in 2014 and Sideshow in 2018. Some noteworthy single releases from these albums include Scars That You Can’t See, the anti-bullying track which was launched at Nashville’s Hard Rock Café during Nashville Pride and Where Ever Love Takes Us, which broke into the Australian Country Top40 and was turned into the line dance Waves of Love by renowned Irish choreographer Gary O’Reilly. This notoriety earnedDrake Jensen recognition for his contribution to the LGBTQ community, as well as a notable reference in the book David Bowie Made Me Gay100 Years of LGBTQ Music History by Darryl W Bullock. He was invited to perform at the book’s official launch inLondon in September 2017, as well as participate in a discussion panel with other high profile guests during the event. Burn The Floor has elements of country, pop, RnB and dance and features strong hooks, a hypnotic groove and an overall sense of fun and optimism. Drake collaborated with Nova Scotia LBGTQ singer/songwriter/producer Jon Hemingway and Rob Preuss, former keyboardist of The Spoons and Honeymoon Suite, and former Associate Musical Director for Mamma Mia on Broadway on this innovative new track. Burn The Floor is sure to be the next global crossover hit and worth checking out.
