Sometimes I lie awake in bed and wonder whatever happened to Lumidee. You know the flawless rap icon behind "Never Leave You (Uh Oh)" (a top 40 smash in Australia way back in 2003)? Well, the sleepless nights are over. The Peurto Rican diva dropped a new single called "Party All Week" earlier this month and it's actually kinda great. Sure, it's another club banger about tearing up the club but I love the Latin horns and appreciate Lumidee's confident flow. Apart from listing the days of the week, she also manages to name check Snooki and Kim K - which makes it better than Nicki Minaj has done since 2010. The video is a low budget affair but it's a colourful reminder that there should be a place for this girl in the industry. I don't like her chances of American chart success but she has continued to score minor hits in Europe over the years, so hopefully this will be another German smash.
"Party All Week" is available to download from Australian iTunes now.
