Samantha’s forthcoming music is in many ways a return to her roots. This new music introduces a woman who radiates confidence having experienced life’s highs and devastating lows, and has come out the other side stronger for it. ‘Bounce’ is the first taste from Samantha’s new album, due early next year.
“’Bounce’ is about that bounce you have in your step when you find the person you love. You feel prettier, the world looks brighter, colours are more vivid! It’s that unique feeling of happiness that comes from being in love,” Samantha explains, “It’s R&B pop and it feels very natural for me. It’s a return to my roots with the music I started doing when I was 17.”
Review of Samantha Jade - Bounce by Thomas Bleach
Before all of the post X Factor success, Samantha Jade was signed to a record label in the US where she released a string of singles including the massive ‘Step Up’ for the hit movie of the same name. She also had a publishing deal as a songwriter to work with other artists and that’s how she got started in the industry. Playing a chameleon over the years, she’s explored all of these different sides that makes up who she is, but for now she wants to return to the roots and where it all began.
Focusing on the art of songwriting and her love for RNB-Pop music, her forthcoming record is going to be a personal and nostalgic affair. And the lead single ‘Bounce’ is a playful nod to the late 90’s and early 2000’s with an Ariana Grande and Normani esq polish.
The romantic track hears her confessing her love for someone and realising that their impact has helped put a spring into her step. It’s super playful, carefree and ultra cute. “You put that bounce, bounce, bounce, in my step”she confesses on the poppy chorus. But it’s the bridge that really stands out with it’s romantic and empowering embodiment. “So love harder, love faster. I know that we're going this farther”.
It’s a song that grows on you with each listen. Some may even call it addictive. It’s just got that ultra RNB-pop feeling to it that you can’t help but groove along to and simultaneously wish you could hit those ridiculous high notes she effortlessly reaches.
