Shontelle - Impossible

Posted 6 years ago
Tags: Shontelle
Producer:
Arnthor [for Aristotracks Productions]
Album:
No Gravity

Shontelle‘s debut set, released first in Nov. ‘08 and then re-released in March ‘09, may not have been the breakout success she was hoping for, but don’t think for a second that she’s let that discourage her. Knowing that adaptability is one of the most important elements of intelligence – or Shontelligence, as the case may be – the T-Shirt singer’s followed in the footsteps of a fellow Bajan songstress and adopted a edgier image and sound for her follow-up. Our first taste of Shontelle’s darker side comes in the form of lead single Impossible, which finds the singer picking up the pieces of a shattered relationship. Though the lyrics are fragmented and, frankly, a little confusing (“Thinking all you need is there/ Building faith on love is worst/ Empty promises will wear/ I know, I know…”), Shontelle’s rueful vocals, delivered over Arnthor‘s pensive piano-synth instrumental, provide all the emotional weight this wounded ballad needs. Is this new, more vulnerable persona a good look for Shontelle? You be the jury. In any case, fans should keep it locked for all the latest news and tunes leading up to the spring release of the singer’s sophomore album, No Gravity.
