Victoria from Talk About Pop Music reviews the latest release from Nathan Sykes:
With only weeks to go before the release of his debut album Unfinished Business: Nathan Sykes surprised fans across the globe. As he revealed he will release the soul- searching ballad Famous on Friday September 30th.
The track sets a more poignant tone then his previous singles. As the singer questions a his lover motives and asks “What’s a man gotta do to make you happy” He continues “Is it all about fortune and fame”.
The track message is clear: Nathan Sykes is drawing a line under a previous relationship. It also serves as a timely reminder that fame has a downside.
There is a raw soulful edge to the song that allow Sykes to show how strong his vocals are. The choruses are the high point as this is where the singer uses his voice to “run” the lyrics.
Performing live is what Nathan Sykes does best. Over the next month, the singer will be playing to packed venues across the United States as he supports Alessia Cara will no doubt ensure this track gains the recognition it deserves.
