A few years ago, Jamelia was hailed as the new face of British r'n'b along with a then unknown singer called Craig David. Her single 'Money' hit the top 5, and follow-up single 'Call Me' did well. However, the teenage Jamelia then fell pregnant and slid into obscurity until now.
Single 'BOUT' failed to make the top 30 earlier this year, but a wise record company stuck with Jamelia, and 'Superstar' was unleashed upon the UK, entering at number 8, staying in the top 40 for four months, and climbing to number three - amazing in the UK, where singles normally come in and out of the charts in about a month and a half.
'Superstar' is without a doubt the poppiest single from her album 'Thank You' and a good choice of release, as it combines pop, dance and r'n'b perfectly. Along with Beyoncé's monster hit 'Crazy In Love', and 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' by The Darkness, 'Superstar' is one of the songs to remember 2003 by.
