Please Release Me: Jamelia’s “Walk With Me”

Oct 30th, 2006 // 5 Comments

jamelia.jpgWelcome to another edition of “Please Release Me,” in which your Idolators request–nay beg–that an out-of-print, delayed or held-up-in-customs album be issued stateside:

Artist: Jamelia
Hometown: England
Album: Walk With Me
What is it?: The third album from one of the U.K.’s biggest R&B-pop singers, who still hasn’t had an album released in the states. Walk could be her big trans-Altantic breakthrough, with no shortage of potential singles, from the Kelly Clarkson-copping “Something About You” to “No More,” which ingeniously samples a bit from the Stranglers’ “Golden Brown.”
Where Is It?: Released just last month in the U.K., Walk has already been praised by the always pop-suspicious Q and Mojo, a solid indicator of Jamelia’s ability to crossover into the old-white-male demographic. And yet: No U.S. release date–nor, so far as we can tell, a label deal. Anyone have more info?

    (accompanied by spooky theremin) Have I stepped into a commenting time warp?

    Uh, I was going to say that Jamelia’s “See It In a Boy’s Eyes” was a great single, but apparently I was delighted when the video for “Move Your Feet” made it into heavy rotation on MTV Hits.

  5. I like pretty much every song on right here. What is the matter with us? Make out the Girl is a best, even though. WHEN I even had that one on my mp3. With regard to, including, heavy lifting for the gym. Yep, that’s what it was…
