SINGLE REVIEW: Samantha Jade – Roller Skates
For her third studio album Samantha Jade is revisiting the glittery disco era for a collection of disco-pop favourites from the likes of Cher, Donna Summer, Diana Ross and The BeeGees. She’s already intrigued you with the shimmery cover of The Emotions “Best Of My Love” which perfectly captures the sound and direction this album is heading towards. But this album also features two highly anticipated new originals and she’s just dropped the first one in perfect time for Mardi Gras. “Roller Skates” is a campy disco throwback which injects Samantha’s signature pop sound with a club twist. It really envisions what disco would sound like now with the heavy electronic focus that pop currently has. The chorus is big and is lead by her easily recognisable vocals with her signature vocal runs. It’s a lot of fun and will completely come to life in her live show. It’s a little more mature than the bubblegum pop her previous singles had and is a step in the right direction musically for her. However I hope the second original track is more classic disco because I would love to hear her completely own the genre in an epic original throwback.
