SINGLE REVIEW: Jessica Mauboy – Fallin

DB2RGWPUwAERSfk.jpg-large

Jessica Mauboy is Australia’s leading pop princess (sorry Delta) and we are used to her club ready pop songs that top the charts but she’s always had deep country roots that only surface when she tours. Her newest single “Fallin” sees her circling back to those roots with a soulful doo-woop twist. This sound showcases her powerful vocals by stripping back the production and just letting her raw talent take lead. It’s very different to anything else out at the moment and will stand out musically but its kinda lacking that memorable moment in the song. It just needs something to combat the dominance that the tropical pop trend has on the charts at the moment. Like the song is beautiful and shows a nice vulnerability to her but it becomes a bit forgettable. But I guess she’s trying to target a different audience so it may work.
