NEW YORK, July 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Just say the name of Capitol Records
debut artist CHE'NELLE, and the vast majority of listeners will flash on
something that's intoxicating to the senses, impossible to duplicate, and a
globe-spanning leader of fashion.
That shoe couldn't fit the artist more perfectly, and the world will
dance in it. 'I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE DJ,' the exuberant call to the dance
floor by CHE'NELLE, with a featured vocal appearance by dancehall star CHAM
("Ghetto Story"), is one of the fastest-breaking tunes at mainstream pop
and rhythmic radio, bringing both heat and refreshment to the clubs and
airwaves of Summer 2007. Major radio noise is already building in New York
and several locations in the South.
A video of the single, featuring Cham, will be serviced in mid-July; a
digital single is already released, and a ring tune will become available
on July 17th.
With a launch song so irresistibly danceable, CHE'NELLE will be
continuing a comprehensive national club and radio tour through the summer,
with appearances tied to local radio mix-shows. CHE'NELLE will co-host The
Big 10 with MTV TRL VJ Damien on July 17th, and she will also be seen in
the pages of King, Vibe, Interview, Yellow, SOJO, East/West, and other
magazines through the summer.
The 24-year-old CHE'NELLE, born in Sabah, Malaysia of combined
Malaysian, Indian and Dutch parentage, developed her singing in her dad's
karaoke bar, and on the local Perth, Australia club scene, where she first
encountered hip-hop music in her teens.
In a Cinderella story that's undeniably a sign of the post-2K times, it
was her array of home-studio demos, pictures and local club flyers posted
on her MySpace page that drew the attention of American DJ veteran Sir
Charles Dixon. Through Dixon's introduction, she was signed to the roster
of the then-Virgin Records by Capitol Music Group Chairman and CEO Jason
Flom, greatly impressed by how much and how well she'd written and produced
on her own. Paired to co-write with such worldwide hit makers as Sean
Garrett and James Poyser, CHE'NELLE more than proved herself, holding her
own with the most successful pop and urban producers in music and turning
in an album of pure pleasure.
CHE'NELLE's album THINGS HAPPEN FOR A REASON will be released September
25th 2007 on Capitol Records.
