Natalie Jean – ‘Blocked’
Hailing from Kensington, ‘Blocked’ is the superb Americana single from the sublime artist Natalie Jean. It is a single that puts Jean as an artist on the rise in 2022.
Instantly enticing and thoroughly captivating, ‘Blocked’ hits the ground running. We adore Natalie Jean’s vocal performance, which is filled with passion and integrity. She has a rich tone to her voice that fills the sonic spectrum with vivid colour.
Lyrically, ‘Blocked’ is a modern-day heartbreak song. It references popular culture and is deeply relatable to the audience. In addition, we found the chorus to be catchy, and the toe-tapping nature of the song will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
We love the backing instrumentation, which provides the solid foundation for Natalie Jean’s vocal performance to shine. In addition, the banjo and string arrangements have been intelligently composed and executed.
Natalie Jean says about the release, “‘Blocked’ is a song that everyone can relate to. In the past three years, I know many have blocked something or someone out of their lives.” She continues, “Obviously, it is better to ‘agree to disagree’, but sometimes that just doesn’t work. Sometimes you reach that point where you must remove someone or that situation completely out of your life.”
Natalie Jean is an exceptional, multitalented artist. She can sing in English, French, Spanish and Haitian Creole. Furthermore, Jean has been nominated and won many awards, including six nominations at the 2021 Josie Music Awards, where she won ‘World Artist of The Year’, and two gold medals at the Global Music Awards.
We are sure that ‘Blocked’ will please existing Natalie Jean fans while simultaneously winning her an army of new ones too. Jean makes music that comes from the heart, and this honesty shines through on ‘Blocked’. She reaches out and touches the listener. A truly talented artist.
