If you’re familiar with Tamia‘s 2004 album ‘More’, you’d recognise that she had a song on there entitled, ‘Still’. That very track, produced by Jermaine Dupri, received a country makeover for her forthcoming new album ‘Beautiful Surprise’ (out on Aug 28th). Tamia re-recorded the track in Nashville with songwriter Claude Kelly and a bunch of Nashville country musicians. With less than two weeks to go for the LP’s release, Tamia has now released it.
Yours Truly is not a country fan by any means but Tamia would convert me easily. This is stunning. The woman has vocals that won’t quit, and her sweet, vulnerable voice perfectly captures the tender sentiment of the song. If she were to record a full length country album, I would buy it. No shame. The woman just can’t do anything wrong in my book even when remaking an almost 10-year-old song and dropping it on a new release. Let’s just say, some people wouldn’t be able to get away with that.
