Sheila King is a singer, songwriter born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico. Her passion for singing began at the tender age 6. She started out professionally as lead singer of the group, “Dulce Material” with who she recorded her first album produced by David Ramos, under the tutelage of renowned music executive, Miguel Correa of BMG, who rocketed the careers of many well-known artists in Puerto Rico. Today Sheila King is the writer of all her songs and masters various styles music, including Urban, Dance and Pop.
Recently Sheila King dropped her track, “Dejate Llevar” (which translated, I think means, ‘Let Yourself Go’). I don’t speak Spanish, so I don’t have too much of an idea of what she’s singing about, but I don’t think it’s necessary to know the language to enjoy the music. Sheila is in great form with this upbeat track that sets itself in a Latin/Pop/Dance setting.
“Dejate Llevar” was my introduction to the world of Sheila King, and thanks to it, I’m hooked. There are many female singers who can’t sing at all and are only liked for their image. That is not the case with Sheila; she is beautiful and can really sing too. Running through her catalog of songs it becomes evident that she can do just about anything. For Sheila King, making music is all about combining the best and most unique of styles into one high-energy pop package. The fusion works well on “Dejate Llevar”. This rapturous, melodic and sexy track hits the taste buds with a loud bang.
A virtual catalyst for the dictionary definition of ear candy, “Dejate Llevar” is superbly catchy for professional dance floors or living room parties. With powerful, ever-changing song structures that never cease to entertain, encourage, empower and enthrall, Sheila King delivers an unceasingly pleasing collection of songs, each of which has what it takes to become a hit single – not least, “Dejate Llevar”. Just as soon as she is ready to inject some more English-language material into her repertoire she will be fully ready to assault the crossover market with a vengeance! In the meantime I love her as she is…especially on “Que No Daria” and “No Hay Manera”…but that’s another story!
