Cheyne Coates has been missing in action since the demise of Madison Avenue and the dismal failure of her own solo career. It's a shame because the world of pop is a less colourful place without her fabulous presence. Thankfully, the DJs behind Canada's Soundbluntz have taken pity on poor Cheyne and asked her to provide vocals for their excellent track, "(Maybe You'll Get) Lucky". If you close your eyes, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was 1999 all over again. "Lucky" could easily slip into Madison Avenue's "Polyester Embassy" album - Cheyne's stunning voice is as expressionless as ever, the beats are similar and the lyrics cover Cheyne's favourite theme of looking sexy in a nightclub. Fans of Australia's most successful dance act will no doubt happily devour "Lucky".
Cheyne's funky anthem was recently released in the UK after a successful Canadian release. To my knowledge it is yet to chart. I'm sure "Lucky" would garner significantly more attention in Australia. Central Station Records - what are you waiting for?! In the meantime, you can purchase "Lucky" from HMV UK or order an import copy from Chaos.
