New Song: Shontelle – ‘Freaky (ft. Gyptian)’

Published: Tuesday 24th Apr 2012 by Sam

It’s been a pretty minute since Bajan beauty Shontelle has served up new material. Unsurprising, given her label switch from Universal Motown to Universal Republic late last year.

However, it appears the 26 year old is gearing up for a chart return, after new cut ‘Freaky’ – featuring fellow Caribbean Gyptian – surfaced today.

A marked departure from the R&B-tinged Pop Rihanna‘s former classmate served up on earlier outings, the cut sees the songbird re-engage with her roots.

Hear what we mean after the jump…

Yes, yes, and yes!

While unlikely to change the world, ‘Freaky’ works on many a front – the most prominent being that it finally awards Shontelle an authentic musical identity.

Indeed, for too long she’s been treading on ground already occupied by a plethora of female acts, who’s talent or label push has far outweighed hers. However, here she manages to fuse something they don’t have – Island spice – with a contemporary kick, resulting in a wholly listenable track.

More of this, please!
