After a hiatus from the music scene Canadian pop rocker Fefe Dobson returned last year with her awesome double A-side single “I Want U 2 Watch Me Move”, but unfortunately it failed on the charts so now she’s switching up her trademark sound and incorporating some dance-pop elements for her new single “Ghost”.
“Ghost” starts off with a bit of a cheap dancey beat could have you shaking your head and wondering where the old Fefe has vanished to, but once the soaring, Kelly Clarkson-esque chorus hits it’s clear that this is still a Fefe Dobson track, only poppier.
It’s the most instantly accessible track that she’s has ever released, which in Fefe’s case is probably a good sign since being a young, pretty and black female has always seemed to confuse some of the general public who wonder why she isn’t doing R&B or pop music.
I hope that this change in musical direction is something that Fefe wants to do and not push from the label to get a hit, but whatever is going on behind the scenes it doesn’t change the fact that this is a pretty damn good song with a lot of potential to crack radio and the charts.
Fefe’s new album Joy will be released June 15.
