MELANIE C : I Turn To You
We’re hanging our heads in pop shame. It’s coming up on three years since we introduced our Lookback segment here on auspOp and we’ve not featured anything from the solo career of the one-time Sporty Spice. Melanie C’s debut single ‘Goin Down’ was a mammoth departure in style for the singer – purposefully so. She wanted to let everyone know that she was no longer a spice puppet and did so in rather spectacular style. A ballad and an urban track down, Mel took everyone by surprise by releasing a Hex Hector produced dance version of her fourth single ‘I Turn To You’. And it worked. ‘I Turn To You’ hit No.1 in the UK and in a variety of European countries, it was a No.1 US club success and her second biggest solo hit here in Australia.
The clip features Melanie alternating between rocky outcrop near shore to nightclub dancefloor and podium. Plenty of head swinging, hip jiggling and lots of intense staring.
According to www.digitalspy.co.uk, she’s working on a dance album for release sometime this year.
