Remember Kumar Sanu? Well turns out he has more talent in his house-hold and this just might be one of the hottest Summer Jams of 2015 in the Urban Scene. A prolific teen sensation ready for her fifth single release in less than a year, Shannon K is a pop vocalist whose star is shooting quickly upwards. Having found her perfect pure pop sound with March single ‘Just Another Boy’ and being named as BBC Asian Network’s Artist Of the Week, she is now ready to further develop her new approach with brand new single ‘Lose Control’. You might even notice her shorter hair this time round, as she’s just cut her hair for the cancer charity, the Little Princess Trust.
Composed by Matt Knight and Andy Whitmore, with lyrics from the excellent Rosie Penn, the single is a feel-good treat, capturing the spirit and freedom of the upcoming summer months. It’s the first time Shannon has released a single with such pure, summer vibes, and the infectious melodies and great production very much get you in the mood for the sunshine:
With ‘Lose Yourself’, Shannon K continues to mark herself out as one of the most versatile young artists on the independent scene today. Previous singles such as anti-drugs tune ‘Just Say No’ and the festive track ‘Christmas Song’ first marked her out as a talented vocalist, but with this year’s quick punch of ‘Just Another Boy’, ‘MOM’ (released on Mother’s Day, lyrics by Brian Bogdanovic) which is an emotional track that really showcases Shannon’s vocal ability, and now ‘Lose Control’, she is showing herself to be a real contender.
Previous single, ‘MOM’:
The quality of her songs, which was there from the very beginning, only improves with each single release. It should come as no surprise to learn that she grew up with a parent who knows what it takes to make it in the music industry.
A glittering career as a vocalist in Bollywood has seen her father Kumar Sanu win a total of 69 awards including 64 in his native India (from Filmfare, Zee Cine, Kishore Kumarand more) plus 5 internationally (from Sunrise Radio-London, West Indian Academy, Grammy-West Indies, Bollywood Music-U.S.A. and Radio Lotus-South Africa).
But now, thanks to her developing mainstream sound and with many years ahead of her, Shannon K has every chance of eclipsing all those accolades – and with more top pop singles on the way, we wouldn’t bet against her.
