Can someone identify this song?

Asked by weeveeship (4632points) May 2nd, 2016

Funny story: The other day, I was at the library and the guy next to me was listening to a song (with headphones) very loudly, such that I could hear the song. The song sounded rather interesting. Here are some notes that I could pick out (notes are musical notes):

G B E E G
G B E E G
G B A A A A B E

Other info from the song as far as I could tell:

* Song appears to be in one of the following genres: Hip-hop, R&B, Rock and Roll
* Not sure if the song has words, but it is possible
* Song is quite fast paced. The above snippet is probably the refrain or main theme.
* Whole song lasted 3–5 minutes.
* Song sounded like it is from post-1980s, possibly rather recent. Doesn’t sound like anything from before 1980s.
* Unlikely that the song is by Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, or Katy Perry (wrong styles for all three – too fast for the first two and rather dark and not upbeat enough for the third)

Would appreciate any help I could get in identifying this interesting song.

Can you give the rhythm of the sequence of notes? That’d help a lot. I can even record it on my piano to help others.

Sure:

First two lines: G and B are played rather quickly. The middle E is held for a bit longer. Final E and B are also played quickly, as quickly as G and B.

Last line: G and B are played rather quickly. First 3 As are played staccato. Last A is played quickly along with the last two notes.

Edit: As the guy was listening to the song on headphones, it is possible that what I gave is the harmony, and not the melody. Still, the harmony should be useful in identifying the song.

Sorry, stumped. Doesn’t sound familiar but I’m guessing it’s rock and roll. More clues would be helpful.
