Former Universal Records alumni and internationally recognized independent recording artist, Shade Sheist, released a brand new single this week titled “Queen,” which features the very graceful voice of former Doggystyle R&R artist Latoiya Williams. The music is arranged by French composer Sovan of VS Productions and showcases Sheist’s infamous deep-toned vocals against live instrumentation. “I wanted to see what would happen if I took the essence of Dr. Dre’s ‘Nuthin’ But a G Thang’ and mixed it with the live version of my hit with Mariah, ‘What Would You Do.’ Essentially, I wanted to keep it gangsta on a (Love) record,” Shade Sheist explained during an interview while on a promotional tour in New York City.
The album title “P.N.L.A: The Exit Strategy,” signifies not only the artist’s 3rd album offering and his 1st solo project in 5 years but Sheist also hints at the record being his final solo album release. Sheist has entertained fans across the world for almost two entire decades and after 1 name change, 5 Billboard-charting singles and a virtually underrated career, he states that “All (good) things must eventually come to an end. I’m one of those ‘good’ things.”
