Jenefer Siân Drops Killer Mixtape
Early last year I wrote a post about budding diva Jenefer Siân. She released a couple of homemade - literally - pop songs that caught my attention and I eventually got to see her perform live in LA. It was a great show and she is a great girl, so I've been gagging for new material. The wait is finally over with a new mixtape hitting the net on Friday. I Wish A Bitch Would is a huge leap forward from her first few attempts. The Welsh born, Hollywood-based beauty now sounds like a fully fledged pop star and should start generating some serious heat with these tunes. Check out the tracklist below:
1. Show Me
2. Boys Up On Us
4. Up In Smoke
5. Hey Hey My My
And yes, track three is a Beyoncé cover. Jenny even does the Kanye rap! I'm wary of anyone touching King B's flawless work - particularly her ode to big dicks - but this gets my seal of approval. The Neil Young cover is also touching. It's a tribute to the singer's late father and you can tell it comes straight from the heart. As for the originals, "Show Me" is my pick. It was written by Michaela "Mickey" Shiloh, who had a song on Britney's Femme Fatale album, and sounds a bit like a cut from that opus. Only with better vocals.
"Boys Up On Us" and "Up In Smoke", the latter was penned entirely by Jen, are also great pop songs. Again, there's a touch of Britney to the sound. I also hear a bit of Jennifer Lopez and underground pop icon Kaci Battaglia. All good. Download I Wish A Bit Would - and sign up for Jenefer's mailing list for future developments - by heading over to her site. It's well worth the effort.
