Shola Ama has to be the UK's best female vocalist, and still remains the UK's premier soul/RnB artist. Discovered at 15 Shola wowed everyone with her debut album MUCH LOVE. She has sold over 4 million records worldwide, won 2 MOBO awards, a BRIT award and has recived the respect of the music industry, and music lovers around the world.
Shola can wrap the critics around her little finger. Her first album, MUCH LOVE was critacally aclaimed, both by the press and the industry. Her second album, In RETURN, Received amazing reviews. Many classing it as "The UK's best soul album ever!". And it looks like the press haven't stopped their love for Shola yet. SUPERSONIC has been given some of the best reviews any album can get!
"AMA has created one of, if not the best soul/RnB album EVER!"
SUPERSONIC gives you all you'd expect for Shola. Stunning vocals, soulful tracs with swirls of RnB, personal lyrics, and something pure and different. On Emancipation (I'm Back), Shola gives you her lyrics and vocals at best. Big ballards are also strong on this album with Here On Earth, Blood From A Stone and Sym4ony-Feat. Danny K, all showcasing Shola's truly amazing voice. Tracks like Electro High (Supersonic) and This I Promise U will make sure your dancing and singing along with Shola!
In short Shola has done it againg. She has given us one of the best albums ever to come from a UK artist. Its a shame that the album is still yet to be given the comercial success it deserves.

This album is fantastic, god only knows why more people don't know about it. Listen out for such tracks as 'this i promise you' and 'granny's yard' will get you singing and dancing along, i only hope we'll be seeing much more of shola ama after her collaboration with the pirates, naila boss and ashanti for the reply to 'i don't wanna know' by mario winans - "you should really know"
