Natalie La Rose is one of 2015’s breakout stars. Her scorching debut single Somebody ft. Jeremih is a groovy, irresistible dance floor anthem inspired by the late, great Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody. It also samples parts of LMFAO’s song Shots. Add in Jeremih’s smooth cadence and a fiery hook and you’ve got a smash hit.
Natalie was born and raised in Amsterdam – her parents are of Surinamese descent. She was ‘discovered’ in 2011 at an ESPY Awards after party when she approached Flo Rida saying that one day she would work with him. Impressed by her confidence he invited her to the studio and over the following two years she performed with Flo around the world as his lead female vocalist. In 2013 she officially got signed to his International Music Group (I.M.G.) label and Republic Records. Look out for him in the video at 1:16.
Written by William Lobban-Bean, Alex Schwartz and Joe Khajadourian, Somebody is the first single from La Rose’s as yet untitled debut album, expected to be released later this year.
