Tania Foster & The Best Unreleased Song Of 2010

One of the best things about writing this blog is occasionally stumbling across a truly brilliant unreleased pop track. I still remember the first time I heard Isabel Guzman's "Love Song". There was just something incredibly special about it and I'm convinced it would have been huge if Isabel hadn't turned into the Swedish Kate Bush and gone into self-imposed exile. Chris Sorbello's "So Lonely" is another gem that immediately comes to mind. With a sexy video in the can and a major label now behind her, you can expect to hear a lot more of that stunning anthem over the next few months. The latest addition to my list of future hits is Tania Foster's fabulous "Supawoman" (below). The British diva is probably best known for providing back-up vocals for Tinchy Stryder but if her demos are any indication, it's only a matter of time before she hits the big time herself. I'm a huge fan of the current urban dance explosion (think Taio Cruz, Jason DeRulo and Iyaz) and "Supawoman" is striking example of someone putting their own spin on the genre by introducing electronic elements and a pure pop chorus. Imagine Keri Hilson crossed with Sugababes circa "Sweet 7" and you get the general idea of Tania's sound. The production needs a bit of a polish and the rap interlude is slightly unnecessary but "Supawoman" is an incredible calling card for a major talent. This has radio hit written all over it.

The minute you mentioned Sour 7 you lost me.

This is definitely something that has "future dance hit" all over it... It is a catchy tune with just the right amount of rent-a-rap mixed in with dance pop fun that I am definitely liking it.

I love it!! This is what alexandra burke tried and failed to sound like on Bad Boys!!

John said...

I am in complete agreement...Sugababes needed a track like this to keep them relevant. Sadly, they're blind to it.

It's not quite ready for the US market, but this could easily fit into the mix on the radio in the UK. Speaking of radio hit, I am loving Mr DeRulo's "In My Head".

"In My Head" is amazing! I think I'm turning into a Jason DeRulo stan, which is incredibly disturbing...

The Alexandra Burke comparison is interesting too. The sound isn't dissimilar but Tania pulls it off, while Alex comes across as a frigid drag queen trying to be hood.

Score one for team Foster!

Yeah what the fuck happened to Isabel? She is just taking forever and a day and pop kids aren't that patient anymore :( (Ditto Le Kid)(Ditto Dangerous Muse)

Robpop said...

She is great! Actually her sound is very much like the bits and pieces I've heard Isabel do..only....in that Isabel is just more synth based. Just a tiny bit.

Yeah, Paul+Mike...Isabel is taking her time...but it will come out this year.

As for Tania...shes brilliant. I am a fully fledged fan of Lady Foster......

I'm glad every thing Robpop/Bobopop hypes/likes always bombs and flops miserably. Worst blog ever. Isabel who? Where is she now? Nowhere, that's where!

Isabel will never make it. Ever.

Mike said...

I think Rob has a pretty impeccable record of picking future hits actually.

He was THE blogger that got the Robyn bandwagon rolling in the UK and I'm sure Isabel would do well if she'd just release something!
