Teardrop is the title track from SF9’s ninth mini-album Turn Over. It’s a breakup song wrapped in a pretty dance music package.
What you mainly hear throughout the song is light 2-Step during the verses and bridge, which transitions to straight four on the floor House for the chorus.
I followed the same type of pattern for my take on Teardrop, switching between 2-Step and House. What I did not do is increase the tension like the original does once it hits the post-chorus. Instead, I chose to keep the mood rather chill.
It may not sound as exciting as the original version, but I believe my interpretation fits the lyrics’ mood a little more closely.
