Current hit: “Move” by Santana, Rob Thomas and American Authors
Linked to: “Smooth” by Carlos Santana/1999.
Because: Melodic elements of “Smooth” are evident and intertwined into “Move,” but edgier.
Also because of the urgency throughout the overall production. It’s trademark Santana, a perfect complement to the driving vocals.
Second time around: 22 years ago, Santana and Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas collaborated on the award winning “Supernatural” album, which included the #1 smash, “Smooth.”
Charting: #22 on Adult Top 40 and #12 on Adult Contemporary radio.
