The self titled album ‘Sharmila’ contains previously written songs and material providing a real variety of styles to listen to.
The 9 track album mixes R&B, Dance and Pop. Containing some of her more known numbers ‘Burning For You (Club Mix)’ – a dance themed anthem, to R&B influenced tracks like ‘Respect Your Body’ and ‘Like A Drug?’.
The R&B dance influenced album is an easy listen for fans. Well produced samples and loops set the foundation for most of the songs. At times you can hear hints of 90’s to early 2000’s rap and R&B influences. Perhaps some inspiration has been drawn from the bigger names from that time like Dre and Eminem, yet there’s dance and club music elements too.
This new album gives a good idea of Sharmila’s versatility as an artist. Switching from pop, R&B and dance provides a good overall variety. Whilst some songs could drag you to the dance floor, others are perfect to chill to.
The tracks on the album ‘Sharmila’ will be:
1. Burning For You (Club Mix)
2. Respect Your Body
3. You Turn My World
4. Like a drug?
6. Burning For You
7. All I Want
9. Guess I Was A Fool
