Hot Video Alert: Fefe Dobson - Stuttering
It looks like we're ONE STEP closer to a new Fefe Dobson album...FINALLY! Dobson's third album...err...second album to see the light of day...Joy, will be released in Canada on November 22nd and on November 30th in the States via 21 Music, a division of Island Records. "Stuttering" is the infectious new single from the Canadian singer/songwriter who hasn't sounded THIS pop since...well...since her last single, the Kevin Rudolf-produced "Ghost." But before that, it seemed as if Dobson was going in a less pop, more rock direction but with "Stuttering," all of my concerns are obliterated.
Dobson's debut album had an obvious ROCK edge. Then came the brilliance that was "Don't Go (Girls and Boys)"...a fun little dance/pop number that was completely different than anything Dobson had released previously. Then came the singles from the never released Sunday Love and it was back to that ROCK sound. Now we have Joy. The first two singles...were different...but similar to her old sound. A little bit pop...a little bit rock. Don't get me wrong, I do love a good shouty rock & roll number like "Watch Me Move" but once "Ghost" came out I was smitten with Fefe Dobson, electro pop diva. While "Stuttering" isn't electro pop by any means, it's something different for the 25 year old. Dobson can really wail and she does in her new single. It sounds like something Rihanna or Shontelle might put out right now. A little bit of pop mixed with a little bit of R&B. How contemporary of Ms. Dobson! Now that she's back on Island Records (after being dropped and then picked back up), here's hoping she gets the promotion she deserves.
The video starts out like your typical "jealous ex" video with Dobson hanging around a sleazy motel, waiting to confront her cheating boyfriend. But OH NO. This time...there's a twist. I won't give it away but you can check it out below. "Stuttering" is out now on U.S. iTunes. Get it. Also make sure that you check out Dobson on the CW series Hellcats, November 10th, performing as herself.
