Jason Aldean follows up “Laughed Until We Cried” with the mid-tempo title track from his latest album, Relentless.
What I can surmise from the somewhat murky lyrics is that the man in this song is happily resigned to the fact that no matter what he does, this woman’s relentless love seems to capture him. In three verses, he tries to explain that her love is even more relentless than a hazy daydream, waves on a beach and a hurricane: “I can’t outrun it, just keeps comin’/Oh, your love is relentless/I can’t fight it, there’s no hiding/Oh, your love is relentless.”
While this song is not perfect, it is better than the last two singles that Aldean has released. The chorus is forgettable, but the verses are liable to get stuck in your head.
