Review of What About Us by The Saturdays
The Saturdays are always in the mind when you talk about girl groups. They have been around for ages and produced some good pop songs, however it is still astonishing to think that they are yet to secure a number one in the charts. However, The Saturdays have been going across the United States and have obviously picked up some influential friends.
New single ‘What About Us’ is a bit of a change of direction for The Saturdays. Firstly they have enlisted the help of dancehall mainstream mainstay Sean Paul to help them. The backing track is a powerful upbeat dance track that helps create a massive feel to the track.
The girls have talent relative to their category and show they are more than just image. The girls voices have been, treated quite a bit in the song with some strong electronic effects on the vocals. But putting that aside, there are some powerful vocals in the track. Sean Paul was obviously added to the track in separate studio sessions but the mix is made quite seamlessly and the unlikely combination works.
Whilst ‘What About Us’ isn’t a classic and isn’t a song that you will be playing to your grandkids, it is a good piece of upbeat pop. It feels that the production is taking The Saturdays to a whole new level. This track genuinely deserves a number one spot.
