Emerging from England, Official Shannon has been constantly on the rise for the last two years. Recognized many times by BBC Introducing and specialized press, her powerful, evocative and dynamic vocals have made sure she could build an artist name that calls for respect and admiration. Now, the Chingford-based talent returns with what sounds like a confirmation of her musical qualities. The project’s first release of the year, ‘Never Gonna Be Her’ is a collaboration with producer SFM 35.8. The result is an exciting and feel-good gem drenched in groovy afrobeat and contemporary vibes, also showcasing Shannon’s relatable songwriting ability.
But it’s more than just a catchy tune. ‘Never Gonna Be Her’ seeks to send a powerful message about self-trust and enjoying the journey, rather than comparing oneself to others. The topic is a timely and important one, particularly in the age of social media. We are bombarded with images of perfect bodies, perfect lives, and perfect relationships, often leading us to feel inadequate and dissatisfied with our own lives. But this song reminds us that we are on our own unique journey, and that we should trust ourselves and embrace our own path, rather than trying to conform to someone else’s idea of perfection.
