Jamelia - Something About You
Liam McGrady 22/08/2006
I guess the new kid must be old enough to go to nursery now then eh? Well that's the pattern Jamelia's musical career has followed up to now right? Signed to Parlophone at 15… released singles and an album… got pregnant and went away for a while… came back and released singles and an album… got pregnant and went away for a while… comes back; single and album due for release in September… pregnancy TBC.
As with pretty much all Jamelia's singles to date, 'Something About You' keeps you mildly entertained throughout it's duration, yet left feeling empty and unsatisfied on its conclusion; a bit like *insert your own crude comparison here*. I suppose the addition of some thrusting guitars to her slickly produced Urban Pop could carry Jamelia to another high chart entry on return from maternity leave, but to me this sounds like a less energetic version of Kelly Clarkson's fantastic 'Since U Been Gone'. Seriously.
'Something About You' is out on September 11th on Parlophone
