Shadi G is an interesting newcomer to the R&B/pop world, and with her new single Wrong Kind, this classy music act has a promising future ahead of her. The opening lead guitar, with its use of reverb and delay effects, instantly put you in that intentionally erotic mood. The atmospheric vibes, in a contradictory way, almost sends us into Cigarettes After Sex-territory, as opposed to an “R&B diva” realm.
Once Shadi’s vocals drop, her voice, and the beautifully performed guitar riff become one, and very sensually so. There is also a Latin Pop tempo, reminiscent of Rihanna’s 2010 hit single Te Amo and the critically-acclaimed, 2019 song Medellin by “the queen of Pop” Madonna.
Shadi G has the potential of heading into a sophisti-pop direction with her music. She is an exciting new music artist with an accessible edge.
