"Best of My Love" is the third single by UK R&B singer Javine. The single was released on 14 June 2004 and was the third single from her album "Surrender". The single reached the #18 in the UK singles chart, her third consecutive top 20 song.

Production[edit]

Following her recent success with her previous singles (Real Things and Surrender (Your Love)) which both charted in the Top 20 in the UK (the latter in the Top 5), Javine followed the path in which she had taken with Surrender (Your Love) being pop. The song is an Indian-stylised modern pop song, with the opening beat containing pieces from a sitar.

The song has been called a 'modern day fusion', containing old-fashioned Indian music and modern pop music, as well as the British-Indian music fusion.

The song was recorded in 2003 for her debut (and only) album Surrender, and was released the following year as the third single from the album. The song maintained Javine's success on the charts, peaking inside the Top 20 at Number 18, as well charting in Ireland (which Javine's previous singles had also managed to do).

The song, which is a standout track due to its 'fusion-esque' style, could have been the inspiration or foundation for Javine's Eurovision entry in 2005 (Touch My Fire), which also has an eastern style (although more heavy) and this time, incorporated into dance.
