Shaney Poo - 'Been Lovin' U'
Review by Victoria Scott & Staff Artist, songwriter, performer and producer Shaney Poo has released a new single and music video.'Been Lovin' U" off the album, Touch By An Angel. Shaney Poo style in “Been Lovin U” is a fusion of R&B, rap, Motown, and soul. The piano starts strong with a live audience sample in the background cheering on Shaney Poo as he begins to sing. Shaney Poo has a soulful-pop voice that is radio-ready and will appeal to the masses. He sings the chorus which is ultra catchy and raps the verses with fire.
"I've been loving you, you know I do."
You will enjoy the Motown styled rhythm in the intro that changes to a cool tricked-out beat. There are many layers in the song that create emotional gravity including engaging harmonic background vocals by Rondelle Mishima and a diverse instrumentation for the arrangement. The production of the song from Roosevelt Brown and Shaney Poo was well-thought-out. In the arrangement, there’s a break that incorporates a spoken word sample from Shihan’s poem “This type Love” adding heat to the rest of the song. “Been Lovin U” represents the dream state you are in when you're infatuation by a woman. Their smell, laugh, walk, and everything about that person you admire is intoxicating. Love is only real when the person knows you love them; you can’t keep love to yourself otherwise it’s only an illusion. In the song, this is addressed perfectly with the use of the beat stops and a wind-down.
Shaney Poo created a music video, which features the wonderful actress Joanne Eli, the woman he is referencing in the song. Director, Videographer, and Editor Alland Torchon creates a dream-like scene that is filled with brilliant nostalgia from a past era where old-fashion romance was center stage. The woman is illuminated with stars and lights as Shaney Poo is portrayed as a smooth brother in a white suit. He speaks of a woman he adores deeply but, in the end - it’s a fantasy. Shaney Poo is a natural on the screen - maybe a second career on the screen is calling this singer.
The video was written and co-produced by Shaney Poo and produced by Rosevelt Brown. It was directed, filmed and edited by XGod. The female lead is Joanne Elie. Spoken Word is performed by Shihan.
