New Music Video … Preeya Kalidas – Shimmy..
Perhaps best known to the nation for her turn as Amira Masood in Eastenders, as well as a string of big-screen appearances, Preeya Kalidas has recently put her acting to one side and signed to Mercury Records to pursue a music career. With a debut album in the pipeline, Preeya has unveiled the video for her first single, Shimmy.
Featuring Mumzy Stranger, the East-London born protégé of Asian super-producer Rishi Rich, the track is a romping R&B-flavoured pop tune with a nod to Preeya’s Asian heritage, and seems destined for chart success and club domination. Preeya’s powerful vocal shines throughout and on occasion has a passing resemblance to Beyonce, to whom the song owes a fairly significant debt. Mumzy’s cameo invites comparisons to Sean Paul (minus the Jamaican accent, obviously!) and sits well at the heart of the track. Its an okay start to Amira’s pop career, i like this song , i just wish it had a bit more oomph in it but hopefully that will came in the form of tracks from Preeya’s debut album!!
