Review of My Everything by Noelia
On hearing ‘My Everything’ for the first time, you forget it’s produced by Timbaland and think “it’s sounding a bit like JLo in On the floor” You half expect to hear Pitbull with a vocal rapping bridge section.
That withstanding, Noelia‘s voice is flawless – albeit autotuned, my big gripe over the past 2 years. Her image is definitely there to match or better the likes of JLo or Shakira. To give you some background knowledge… here’s her bio; Noelia was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and raised in Miami, Florida. She rose to fame in 1999. Her eponymous debut album was certified Gold in the United States. During her career she has had 10 Latin Billboard Top 40 hits, and has 18 worldwide gold & 9 worldwide multi-platinum certified albums, along with one RIAA-certified Gold (500,000) record in the United States.
Noelia has now sold more than 4.5 million Albums worldwide, won multiple awards and has also won Latin Billboard’s Award Album of the Year. She has crossed borders to Europe to be acknowledged as the “International Singer of the Year” in Italy, at the prestigious Festival Bar.
She’s no Michelle Macmanus then**
Whether or not her sound breaks the UK scene which seems to be a bit flooded at the moment with female solo singers/rappers, is yet to be seen. For every Carly Rae Jepson, there’s a dozen or so Carrie Underwood’s – okay granted this isn’t the best comparison I could’ve used – but you get my meaning.
Her fanbase is huge, and that’ll help break the UK scene… but as for commercial success – only time will tell.
‘My Everything’, her brand new single produced by US legend Timbaland, is a pop dance smash set to light up this summer’s dance floors across the globe. With remixes from some of the UK’s hottest producers including Soulshaker, Galea & Cenko and K Warren UKG, Noelia will be based in Europe throughout the summer to support this release & to tour as her popularity grows this side of the water. The video for ‘My Everything’ has recently been filmed in Miami Beach and will be released soon. Noelia has a new album ‘Mind Blown’, produced by Timbaland, due for release later in the year.
** Although Michelle Macmanus did have a number one UK single……
