“You Bring Out the Best in Me” is an uplifting slice of 1970’s soul. Equal parts Stevie Wonder and James Brown, Dru’s soaring vocals will have you singing along to the spirited call-and-response chants. The Motown/Soul Train-inspired music video even has Dru dancing with choreographer Aisha Kuryana (Kimbra, Guy Sebastian) amongst other inner city Melbourne vignettes.

lyrics

When you ain't got nobody
Everyday feels the same
And you’re walkin’ the streets
Without an aim
Now that I've found ya
I'm all up around ya
You see right through me
You know how to move me

I just wanna tell you baby
How I really feel
I just wanna show you baby
I am for real

You bring out the best in me, baby
Ah ah yeah, ah yeah.

When we go out to town
I'm filled up with pride
Just to have you around
Havin’ you by my side
The way I see it
I can really feel it
You show me much love
Liftin’ me high above

I just wanna tell you baby
How I really feel
I just wanna show you baby
I am for real

You bring out the best in me, baby
Ah ah yeah, ah yeah.

(Instrumental Bridge)

We may have our worries
We may have our fears
The future’s uncertain
Our plans never clear
But right now I'm with ya
Right now I need ya
You're sweet inspiration
My sweet fascination

I just wanna tell you baby
How I really feel
I just wanna show you baby
I am for real

You bring out the best in me, baby
Ah ah yeah, ah yeah.
