Shontelle Actually Has A Hit...

No, seriously! This week "Impossible" climbs all the way to #17 on the US charts - becoming the Barbadian diva's first biggest hit. I'm so happy for her. Shontelle instantly became a guilty pleasure when I learned that she was calling her debut album "Shontelligence" (yes, I'm that easy!) and moved into fan territory when Rihanna stans cruelly dubbed her the beast of Barbados. Girlfriend can't help looking like a man! Anyway, they are probably just jealous of Shontelle's stunning $ucce$$ now that she's officially an international megastar. I just never thought "Impossible" would be the song to break her. In fact, I'll even admit to initially hating it but I can now see the error of my ways. The power ballad is an absolute grower that becomes more addictive with each listen. The arrangement is very 90s and there's no denying that my girl can sing RiRi under the table! Although that's not really saying very much...

As much as I like "Impossible" and hope it continues to rocket up the charts - I vastly prefer the follow up/international lead single. "Licky" was unveiled way back in January but is still listed as the second single from Shontelle's forthcoming sophomore album. Apparently, it will also serve as the international single and has just been remixed by a bunch of America's hottest DJs. Regardless of its status, "Licky" is one of the hottest songs of 2010. I love the dirty lyrics and that chorus is catchier than cholera. One listen and you'll be humming along to "L-I-licky-C-K-licky-Y". Can Universal please release this in Australia so I can get some relief from "Rated R"? I guarantee that it will be huge. On my blog. Maybe just ignore the video (below). It's probably what started the rumours about Shontelle having man parts. The Gaga gone wrong hooded dress and fringed boots combination is all kinds of nasty and that feathered jacket isn't much better. Anyway, I'm sure we can all agree that Rihanna is now officially redundant. And that's got to be a cause for celebration!

I'm not really into "Impossible," but Shontelligence IS a great title. Amazing/cheesy puns forever!

Haha. I love this girl. "T-Shirt" was fantastic and "Impossible" isn't far behind. She may be a little masculine looking, but that's nothing compared to Y chromosomes in Fergie and Lady GaGa.

I can't breathe! New Victoria!

Have Rihanna's Retards actually looked at their idol?!? Love Fighter Chris Brown has a more feminine shape than his ex - she has those VILE boxy hips that only happen on anorexics...

It's derivative, and it's not good. I saw her sing it live on TV last week, and it was VILE.

I found "impossible" song & video kinda boring and usual but I have to say "licky" is huge! I guess its for a gay audience mainly lol ,the video is great also! I would love to see Toy make this kind of song!

As soon as she sampled Princess Superstar's "Licky" I was a fan. "Stuck With Each Other" was quality too

LOL Toy should definitely cover "Licky"!
