Here is a new track from Shontelle that surfaced today. The Darkchild-produced song, entitled ‘Perfect Nightmare’, will be featured on her new album, ‘No Gravity‘, which hits stores on September 24th. ‘Perfect Nightmare’ will officially impact US radio on August 31st. Peep the song below:
This song features tight production and should fare well on Pop radio. However, considering the fact that Shonetelle is yet to escape her title of ‘not Rihanna‘, I wonder why she has not chosen to go in a more R&B direction to avoid such comparisons?
Rihanna is without a doubt a Pop act (regardless of what the BET Awards said) and given their similar background and sound, Shontelle should be more adamant about forging her own identity rather than following in her fellow Bajan’s footsteps. Then again, I sense that there is only so much that you can do with a voice like hers. Take it or leave it.
