From the entertainment capital of the world comes an exciting new artist ready to make you get your groove on. The newest singing sensation Kylie Marcus has hit the ground running straight to stardom with her latest single and video "Yellow Shirt". A soulful combination of funk and R&B, Kylie Marcus' music knows no bounds, and her personality outshines even the most beautifully sung choruses she can belch out deep within her.

Kylie's style has an up-tempo, contemporary R&B feel to it and some added funk for good measure. Her music has an aura of Barbra Streisand with a bit of Pharrell William's flair for getting groovy on tracks; and that is an accolade in itself. She prides her self with having a nice smooth vocal range but let's her strong personality take over songs, which definitely take her to the next level.

Her single, "Yellow Shirt", was produced by Jean-Michel Soupraya and even he couldn't resist to get down and jive to the record. "Yellow Shirt" feels like a sheet music straight from James Brown, as it has a real up-tempo rhythm to it with a vibe you can just loose yourself in. The funk in the background chugs away at the beat as you are engulfed with Kylie's mischievous lyrics and persuaded to listen to her like a siren's call. As the funk keeps playing, there is a moment where the bridge comes in to soothe your heart and give you a needed break from all that dancing. It's here where you can truly enjoy her vocal range and experience Kylie Marcus' talents as a singer. But nevertheless the song goes right back to it's original groove. Musically speaking, this song's energy is overwhelming and forces you to let go and feel good.

Kylie's lyrics are driven by her personality, as she is trying to be flirtatious with a man in a "Yellow Shirt". However she is aggressive and knows what she wants, and will sing her away to her man's heart, even though he might be taken. Her fun and frisky delivery offer the listener a coy, humorous tune to boogie to and may even be an anthem to empower women and let the guys take a break from doing all the flirting; not all girls play hard to get!

Kylie Marcus has done an excellent job with combining a touchy subject and making it carefree. Not only that, the song's energy propels her to a Motown-esque echelon of music that is slowly making a comeback in today's mainstream musical tastes. Kylie Marcus' voice, coupled with her strong, sassy style, will be something to keep an ear out for as she already has a strong radio presence. Be on the look out for her new music slated to come out later this year and if you're a man, you might be in for a surprise if you're wearing a "Yellow Shirt".
