Hot Video Alert: Tina feat. Fat Joe - So Good
Check out this HOT video by rising star, TINA. Written by Jim Beanz (Katy Perry, Jamie Foxx, Justin Timberlake) and produced by Charlie Hype (both of Timbaland Productions), "So Good" was originally released back in November - somehow flying completely under my radar. Featuring hip-hop super star Fat Joe, the song sold over 800 downloads in it's first day of release and more than 2,500 downloads within the first week. Pretty impressive for an independent artist!
For those of you who think Tina looks familiar, there's good reason! The Mumbai-born, Jersey-bread beauty was originally signed with Hollywood Records as an artist (and with Warner/Chappell Music as a songwriter) going by her full name - Tina Sugandh. Working with top producers including Lester Mendez (Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Jewel), Track & Field (Nelly Furtado), The Monkey Boyz, and Dr. Luke, Sugandh readied an album...however it was unfortunately never released.
In 2008, Sugandh had a touch of success on the Billboard Dance Chart, with her Bollywood dance/pop single "Break Me" hitting the #4 spot with hot remixes from Chris Cox, Freddy Bastone and Soundfactory. A follow up club single was also released in 2009 called "You Without Me," and featuring remixes by Chris Cox, however it was not as successful as it's predecessor. Now, no longer attached to a major label, Tina is doing things her way, releasing music through her own production team called Sunset Entertainment Group.
The video shoot for "So Good" was featured in an episode of the Style Network reality series, Jerseylicious, which only helped with the promotion of the single. The video, directed by Paul Coy Allen (Timbaland, Nelly Furtado, Justin Timberlake) is a sleek and expensive-looking affair. Tina, an absolute stunner, is dripping with luxury and sex appeal. The song itself is a "timpani driven high energy pop track with an infectious synth driven chorus," incorporating some of the same Bollywood-pop elements present in her previous dance singles, "Break Me" and "You Without Me." It's a hot track from a talented artist. Still not convinced? Check out THIS jam session between Tina and Ringo Starr! Amazing. Not only does she play the tabla (Indian drums) but she also plays the guitar. This lady does it all, and she's gorgeous to boot!
