Elvic Kongolo – “Our Story” single
‘Our Story’ tells a heartfelt tale of a man who shares a failing relationship with his significant other. Apparently, he’s remorseful for breaking his companion’s heart and ponders on what to do next to make things right again.
‘Our Story’ contains a bittersweet storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the sentimental tune possesses luxurious instrumentation flavored with Congolese rhythms and American funk elements.
“Our Story” single
“When I hear ‘Our Story’, I picture a beautiful relationship between two people. Their relationship was fantastic, they were in paradise. Unfortunately, their love couldn’t conquer the obstacles coming their way and it did not last. The song is a strong but gentle reminder that we often find happiness by remembering what we have in common with other people, not what divides us.” – Elvic Kongolo
