Outside of her Carribean homeland, Shontelle will probably always live in the shadow of fellow Bravian pop princess Rihanna. However, believe it or not, Shontelle used to run a harsh boot camp where she made Rihanna do push ups! Yeah, sounds like something in a comedy movie but true. While being huge in Barbados, Shontelle’s career outside of it has hardly been remarkable.

Releasing another cosy, mid-tempo R&B slow jam unlike surpirse hit T-Shirt, this is perfect chick-flick fodder for the Shopaholic soundtrack. Shontelle’s ropes in hit-maker of the moment Akon to give a surprisingly steady vocal performance that actually sounds good rather than using imprisoned chipmunks to sing instead. So all in all, it’s a nice duet between the two but if Shontelle wants to be successful here she’s going to have to be more than a one trick pony. Why not release some of those dancehall tunes of her Shontelligence album?

The video is a simple piece of work featuring some clips from the Confessions Of A Shopaholic movie while Shontelle is seen standing around a clothes shop with her boyfriend, trying on clothes and buying them. Obviously Akon isn’t good enough to be her love interest so he’s confined to being trapped in a television screen with her in front of a large golden background.

So, final verdict, seeing how long it took me to describe the video, you’ll know that it’s pretty non-descript and lacking any fun. Pleasant to look at but that’s about it!
