Shameem is very excited to announce the release of her brand new single “Beautiful Soul”! “Beautiful Soul” is available for purchase on iTunes and BandCamp, and streaming services such as Spotify. Check out the sunshine-drenched music video, produced by Red Bird Creative in Shameem’s hometown of Perth.
“Beautiful Soul” is the first single from The Second City, Shameem’s forthcoming sophomore album. Driven by Shameem’s expressive, soulful vocals, an unforgettable hook and a phat urban beat, “Beautiful Soul” draws together elements of R&B, soul and a slight tinge of jazz. Shameem’s sense of social consciousness has informed the lyrics, which draw attention to the way in which children are taught prejudice and indifference by adults.
Shameem, who considers herself a “musician” rather than a “singer”, not only wrote but also co-produced the track, contributing to the drum programming and keyboards as well as the instrumental and vocal arrangements.
