Samantha Jade

Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

Just decided to check this out because there seems to be quite abit of hype around her and I can see why, fantastic song!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

Just checked Itunes and Firestarter is sitting at #25 in Australia already.

Oooh and I didn't realise this:

http://www.news.com.au/entertainmen...or-samantha-jade/story-e6frfn09-1226574616610

she narrowly brushed paths with Britney Spears in an incident that made international headlines.
Going through a bad stage back then, record label executives called on Jade to step in for Spears and record a video clip with a budget of $500,000.
But with Jade waiting in the wings on standby, Spears pulled herself together (12 hours late) and ended up filming the clip for her hit, Pieces Of Me.

AND she's going to be playing Kylie in a new mini-series about INXS!!!!

Well this is fantastic. It's already at #11 on Australian iTunes. I pray this becomes massive!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

Up to #8 already! I can't believe this is doing so well with as of yet no video - though speaking of which, a behind the scenes look:

The bit with the chair reminds me of Delta's In This Life video - but with dancers!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

It's like a mix of What You've Done To Me and her cover of Usher's Scream. Definitely the perfect song for her!

Ooh I love that analogy! I can see where you're coming from there! Also it's up to #6 on Australian Itunes and is out now in Ireland!

Samantha has also performed it on Sunrise here:

And she also performed What You've Done To Me as well which has leapt back up to #109 on Itunes

That performance of 'What You've Done To Me' was incredible, powerhouse vocals!

Is there an official YouTube link or are there only fan uploads?
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

No official link at the moment which is annoying! Hopefully the music video will be released soon. The Sunrise performances are from their own official youtube link.
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

I really like Firestarter, but I can't help feeling a little... disappointed. The chorus doesn't quite live up the build up of the verses.

Does it remind anyone else of Monrose's I Am album? It's like Tip Toe;s equally sexy sister!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

I feel like we should be past these type of songs by now, but it really is solidly constructed, and a great little dance pop song.

Her voice is very 2006/2007 though, and I can't shake that.
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

Amazing performances. She's so good live, I'd love to see her on tour one day if she ever came to the UK. I'm loving the song more and more with every listen too.
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

I LOVE this woman. I love that they (her label) seem to be taking their time and giving her some quality material to work with. Both singles thus far have been immense!!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

It's crazy to think that she nearly didn't make it past the first week of live shows.
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

I know, I'd hate it if she hadn't have managed to battle through. It's hard because I really only found out about her after she won, so I had to go through all the videos and you can clearly see how after Scream she hit her stride as a performer. As much as Guy should take credit for this, I really do think Mel should as well, she was really pushing her week after week to come out and be edgy.

Anyway, Firestarter is out now on UK Itunes! WOO HOO!!! I bloody wish they would kick in some more promo for her though, the song is down to #15 on Australian Itunes. Where is the music video!!!
 
Re: Samantha Jade - Firestarter (NEW SINGLE)

Although I'm rather disappointed that I don't like this song at all, I'm praying this and her second album does well on the charts. I don't want her to become another flop diva, which Australia has so many of (Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Zoe Badwi are two prime examples that have been mentioned on this thread).
