Like her Bajan sister Rihanna, R&B/Pop singer Shontelle is working on a new studio album. Initially the “Impossible” hitmaker planned to re-release her sophomore effort ‘No Gravity,’ but after Motown records folded, leading her to move to Universal Republic, she says she will drop a brand new project.
“Now I’m on Republic. It’s a brand new label, brand new situation, which is probably going to mean a brand new album,” Shontelle told MuuMuse.
The set will be lead by the first single “Reflection,” which she says will be everyone’s “happy song.”
“It’s not a ballad. I’m not going to be emo on this oneâfor once!” she joked. “It’s like the happy songâit’s going to be everybody’s happy song, I’m telling you.”
So far, Shontelle has logged studio time with several hit producers: “I’ve been working with a lot of good people, like Tony Kanal from No Doubt, The Runnersâ¦Rockwilder (“Lady Marmalade,” “Dirrty”), and a bunch of other people,” she states.
