Once in a while, I stumble across some tracks that I’m surprised aren’t in the mainstream, probably because it’s from an artist that’s got potential but doesn’t have the right promo to be more well-known, which is strange considering this song should’ve been way bigger than it is what with the label it’s from.
Her name’s Starshell, and she’s a singer-songwriter signed onto the Interscope Records roster through Mary J. Blidge. Why is this relevant? Interscope helps host some of the biggest artists: Eminem, Blink-182, Lady GaGa, and Madonna, just to name a few.
Starshell’s first single “SuperLuva“, from way back in good ol’ 2010, should’ve been a bigger summer hit just for its catchy hook alone. Everyone loves a good “whoa-oh-oh” lyric (as evident by Britney’s smash hit “Till the World Ends“) and even better when the person singing has a name that reminds you to go hit the beach.
“I just threw on these dancing shoes,” she coos, “to prove, my love, for you“, and you already know that the chorus coming soon after will get you on the floor, nod your head, or dance shamelessly in your bedroom like no one’s watching.
Now you’re probably going “ugh, another dancefloor song?” and I’d agree with you, but the song’s rhythm makes it work. And don’t underestimate that hook; it flows well with the lyrics enough to let you know that this isn’t anything other than fun. It’s the type of song that sounds better the louder it is on the speakers, and oh look, you’re already replaying it.
