The duet version of “Beautiful Lady” reflects McGregor’s newfound pop culture affinities – adding Canada’s favorite R&B songstress to the bubbly character of Gyptian’s melody, energized by a cheery, beachfront roots riddim. “’Beautiful Lady’ is a feel-good song,” said McGregor. “Divine Brown makes the song even more romantic, and the riddim takes the song to another level. It captures the feel-good vibe of the original, but the new beat has a pop feel that makes the song even more mainstream. It’s more commercial and radio friendly.”
Divine Brown said “Beautiful Lady” represents one of her favorite songwriting themes. She said the song will have a sensual appeal among reggae fans, because of the spur-of-the-moment romance motif in the song’s lyrics. “I want people to feel sexy when they hear ‘Beautiful Lady’ – it’s such a sensual track about love at first sight,” said Divine Brown. “Love songs are one of the most universal themes in music.
Everyone has fallen in love. I tend to draw from personal experiences when I write love songs. The process is relaxing and fun.” Born in Toronto, Canada, Divine Brown is a four-time Juno Award nominee (Canada’s equivalent of the Grammy Awards), and she won the Juno Award for “R&B Soul Recording of the Year” in 2009. Her singles have been featured on the Billboard Dance Club Play Chart and the Billboard Canadian Hot 100 Chart. About these ads
