About the Artist

Singer, songwriter, rising star and aspiring lawyer?

Not the combination that one would normally expect. But then again there is nothing ordinary about Shontelle - the 23 year-old Bajan singer-songwriter who's set to take the world by storm after signing with music mogul Steve Rifkind's SRC records.

Shontelle's unique story begins in the West Indies on the beautiful Island of Barbados. The oldest of 3 sisters, Shontelle has always been an over-achiever who excelled academically while competing in several sports. However her true calling as a prolific songwriter and talented singer would draw her away from both the field and classroom and onto center stage.

Shontelle's fate seems to have predestined her to be a star. Her aunt Kim Derrick, a popular and celebrated artist in Barbados, saw her drive early on and encouraged Shontelle to pursue her dreams ­ despite her family's concerns that becoming a musical performer would not be the best career choice. While in high school Shontelle attended "Cadets" camp - where she served as drill sergeant over a newcomer named Rihanna. "She was a good cadet, though there was one occasion when I had to make her drop and give me ten push-ups. We laugh about it now, I think she's forgiven me." Little did either of the teens know that they would remain friends and both follow the same dream of becoming international stars in the music business.

When Shontelle made the decision to attend the University of the West Indies she chose to pursue a degree in entertainment law. She has reaped the benefits of this decision to this day and credits her time studying law with opening her mind to different subjects and ultimately feeding her creative process. As Shontelle says "The next couple of years moved really fast". She began to carve a reputation in the Caribbean music world by crafting songs for a number of top artists, all while attending the University. Before long, Shontelle scored a hit heard far beyond the Caribbean, writing the girl-power anthem "Roll".

Producers Evan Rogers and Carl Sturken of SRP Records , who had discovered Rihanna in Barbados and brought her to the world stage, heard the song on a Bajan radio station and felt that it had international hit potential.They sought out the writer of the song to license it for a cover version, and had a pleasant shock; "We couldn't believe that she was such a great singer and so young and beautiful, and hadn't been discovered yet" says Rogers. They signed her immediately, and spent the next six months creating her debut album. During a period Shontelle describes as "one of the defining moments of my life", she flew around the country meeting with executives from the world's top labels and eventually decided to sign to Steve Rifkind's SRC Records - joining the ranks of the many successful artists in the Universal Music family.

Shontelle may have put the law degree on the back burner for now, but she certainly has no regrets. "I think I've known all along that it was my destiny to perform on stage and give something to people with my music", she says with calm conviction. And as 2010 starts to unfold, she's eagerly anticipating the excitement and challenges that lie ahead. "I love music, it's my passion, and I can't wait for people to hear what I have to say, and I've got a lot to say!

By A. Gooding on December 2, 2010
Format: Audio CD
I bought Shontelle's first album and I had high hopes for her second album. Her debut was good, it had variety but no real personality.

It's easy to like Shontelle, she is pretty and she has a good voice. But it just seems like she hidden in her music. There just isn't any personality or uniqueness in many of the songs. The production and the beats are really good.

The album is a good listen, but it's just rather bland and if you heard it in the clubs or in the mall you probably wouldn't recognize who it is.

The most unique songs are "Impossible","Perfect Nightmare", and "Take Ova". Shontelle's vocals seem the most engaged in these songs, even if the lyrics aren't anything amazingly special.

Other than that, the rest of the music is standard pop that will go through one ear and out the other. It blends in perfectly today with today's music scene. And that can be both a good thing and a bad. She is relevant but not unique. Like say Beyonce has her trademark diva vocals, Ke$ha has her rebelliousness, Katy Perry has her cutesy innuendos, Rihanna has her girl power, Britney has her breathy/sexy vocals, and Taylor Swift has her unabashed honesty. Shontelle doesn't really have any special characteristic to make her own & market in the industry. To be a successful artist you have to have something to trademark.

I enjoyed this album for its dance-ability, nice beats and good vocals. I would only recommend this album as something to listen to in the background or to dance to.

I bought this for my wife to work out to and she loves it! She runs to the music on her ipod and even likes the slow songs. There is something in the rhythm or the beat that energizes and encourages you to keep going.

I think its a shame this album did not get more attention. I have more than 3 favorites already and I listen to the cd everyday in the car where ever I'm going. This is definitely worth the purchase price and I wish more people knew about Shontell's beautiful voice and wide array of styles.

I don't know why this album was a flop. I like it very much. Maybe it's about thepromotion, or no promotion. There are couple nice party tracks and some ballads. I am very angry, that "Licky" is not on the CD. Even if the USA didn't like this track, they should put it istead of "T'Shirt" Remix.

I was hoping for something better than this after hearing "Impossible" but this album fell short of my expectations. I was not a fan of her first album either but I thought after much time has passed that she would come out with a better second effort and this one sounds like the first. I could not even listen to the whole album in one sitting because it was painfully bad. I think she has a nice voice but this genre may not be for her. I will not listen to any more of this artists music unfortunately.

i think the people writing reviews here underestimate the difficulty in writing even one catchy hit song. here, shontelle has managed to write 5.. the first 5 songs really are great, catchy, good beats, nice vocals and good lyrics. they will be stuck in your head. and i do feel she sings them passionately. of course when u only have 9 new tracks, it might seem kinda bad that 4 of them are kinda take it or leave it. but the first 5 are really awesome and i've been listening to them ever since i bought it. kiss u up is okay, and if u liked t-shirt well...here it is again. my only complaint is there arent more songs. but this is a solid cd.
