This song is in the same vein of her 2014 single "Sycamore Tree." These two songs blend mainly folk-pop and country music, resulting in a song that sounds like British singer/songwriter Gabrielle Aplin crossed with old country Taylor Swift. "We Don't Need Money" is about exactly what you would guess from the title. Brandy tells the story of a couple who keeps hearing that they will never work, but Brandy sings that "if we got love, we're rich in every way." The couple doesn't have any money, but this song tells them that they're going to make it, if they have love and faith. It's a song for every young couple out there who aren't quite stable financially yet, but love each other. Love doesn't solve everything, but Brandy takes on a beautiful, if somewhat unrealistic perspective on a relationship, creating a breathtaking track. Reality is overrated, and it's nice to hear a fairytale love-type stories in songs again.
Carmen Brandy brings the love into love songs again, and she brings the joy back to country music. The joy in this song is real, and it is not a joy brought on by abusing alcohol, like many songs on the radio do these days. It's infectious, and it's impossible not to feel happy after hearing this song.
