ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On the heels of her very successful independently released debut “Angélique”, Around the World in a Groove is the sophmore effort for multi-lingual (French, Spanish, English) neo soul singer-songwriter Angélique.

Accompanied by stellar background singers and musicians, Angélique’s Around the World in a Groove is a musically diverse, infectiously rhythmic groove album that will strike a chord with countless audiences.

"When You Gave Your Word" is a funky, hip hop groove with driving bass and clavinet riffs that address “blah blah television playas” who lie, beg and cheat. It features Alabama rapper TJ showcasing his “dirrty south” skills with singer-actor Michael Kostroff (The Producers, The Wire) on backing vocals.

Perfect for Urban Adult Contemporary Markets, "Cornbread, Beans & Rice" is a laid back, summer in the park track with Angélique reminiscing about a lazy Saturday with her “boo”

English/Spanish Soca flavored “What is Hip?” questions whether smoking “ganja” and video looks are required to be acceptable or hip.

A long time fan favorite in Angélique’s live show, “Loved and Left Again” is R&B at its best; searing vocals, lush harmonies and a smoking rhythm section.

Clavinet driven “What Would You Do” (If You Had My Family) drops a heavy dose of true-to-life reality on the effects of verbal abuse and neglect to an innocent child.

“Bird of Beauty” is a Zouk inspired version of the English/Portuguese Stevie Wonder classic.

First single “Sherockafella" with a decidedly multi-formatted oriental slant, explains how a confident girl with “hips like butter and thighs like cream” can have a man panting like a dawg!

“You Said” is a Latin-tinged mellow groove that probes the hopes and disappointments of loving man just not that into you.

Performed in French and English, reggae groove “I’ll Remember is the aftermath of the soul-wrenching joys and sad nostalgia of a lost love.

Written by Belgian chanteuse Maurane, “Fais Soleil” is performed entirely in French, with a happy Latin Jazz twist.

Destined to be a classic, “True Colors has the right elements of a timeless ballad: emotionally riveting and deeply personal, the haunting lyrics and sweet harmonies echo the heartbreak in her voice.

“Here To Stay” finishes the set with a rock-flavored dance declaration that Angélique is HERE TO STAY!!!
