The singer and songwriter known as Shantay B has released her latest single, “Michael Kors.” The track features an appearance by popular independent recording artist, MC Moe Diamondz. It has been produced by Novaman and published on the Novamanmusic independent record label. Smooth, ultra-feminine and classy from head to toe, “Michael Kors” by Shantay B is a single built on both natural and polished talents, and one which fans of both R 'n' B and hip hop are sure to appreciate.

Shantay B cites as main artistic influences such legends as Whitney Houston, Beyonce, and Frank Ocean. The style of her own track, “Michael Kors,” bares resemblance to the songwriting style of Beyonce, while the crisp, clean quality of the vocal tracks are more akin to Whitney Houston. The end result is a display of sonic finery which matches the themes of the track very well.

Speaking of these topics, Shantay B collaborator and co-writer Pierre Lawson explains, “The single appeals to every individual that has a shopping fetish. The hip-hop culture is becoming more influential on high fashion in 2014 and this song is all about designers, hence, 'Michael Kors.'”

Shantay B was born and raised in West Berlin, Germany. Her musical journey began at four years old, singing and playing piano. By the time she was a teenager, she had moved back to Louisville, KY with her family and begun operating as the music minister of the church where her father was a pastor. It wasn't until she moved to Charlotte, NC, however, that Shantay B finally met producer, Novaman. The meeting would culminate in the writing, recording and publication of “Michael Kors.”

Her official artist's bio relates their meeting and collaboration on the single: “This was a pivotal point in Shantay's music career because she never worked with any producer that could convey her ideas and help to polish her writing abilities. One day, Novaman was inspired by Shantay's normal fashion apparel, which is usually an array from designers including Christian Dior and Michael Kors. He was inspired to develop the 'Michael Kors' track and presented it. Shantay was highly impressed and immediately began inking her thoughts and emotions.

“The record was written and recorded the same day. To add more 'girl power' to the record, independent female recording artist MC Moe Diamondz provided her Harlem flow to finesse the urban side of the record.”

Shantay B is currently recording her new EP and has stated plans to impact the music industry in a positive way.

“Michael Kors” by Shantay B is available online worldwide.
