Deeyah was born and raised in Norway. She is an acclaimed artist in Norway and already has two albums under her birth name Deepika. She’s currently working with established US producers to create her own unique pop sound. Deeyah is classically trained in Indian singing which doesn’t, to me, really transend on this track. She appears to have taken on more the whiney r’n’b style that is similar to Britney Spears but a bit more like All Saints. I’m not too inspired by this
track. Her lyrics aren’t that deep and there’s no real punch to her delivery. There’s neither gritty soul nor sweet serenity. The music is quite clever. A sophisticated production using some guitar samples, Indian wind intruments, a nice breakbeat to drive the track and modern use ofscratching. There’s other versions on this single that uses MC’s. ‘ISaw You’ is an ok progressive pop tune that sits somewhere in the realmof average. Could be better.
