A chronic album that I had not planned to listen to, that of Shontelle. Shontelligence, the title of the album is a pun that I do not understand but whatever. A good album was not the only thing I heard but it was a strong apprehension that made me purchase it. The album contains two rather distinct sides of the R&B/pop singer. The album was released on 18 November 2008 and was reissued on 9 March 2009. My criticism of the normal edition, having never seen the reissue of the album which I thought it was not even released was a good overall description as follows.
T-Shirt: First single from the album, very pleasant, it is a beautiful ballad pop / R & B as we heard at some point before all take a turn to electro is close to what can Ne-Yo provide instrument question, Beat this, not too powerful, acoustic guitar, a beautiful interpretation, opening album of simple but high quality and efficiency very well. I already knew this song and it was thanks to her that I want to buy the album was coming.
Battle Cry: Second and last single from the album, the third being on the reissue. A mid tempo R & B very pleasant, powerful beat of a clear and fresh voice, though rather banal, very pleasant and enjoyable. The comparison with Rihanna will be inevitable, but of course the songs from Shontelle are much less affordable than those of the success Rihanna had at a young age.
Superwoman: Here is the first of the new album, although I knew that T-shirt. A song in chorus is very striking and the “Oh wo wo wo” adds little later costs and easy to remember which is a walking song, the album starts with three well frankly song and hit as many.
Cold Cold Summer: A good instrument to blend in with a nice air of reggae. Shontelle’s voice, is less charismatic but so much more enjoyable. A nice title, the violin makes a difference in the song, once again I am very satisfied with the result.
