Back in July, Senit re-branded as Senhit with an h. At first glance, the change might seem cosmetic and superficial, but it actually comes with a major shift in sound, which you can hear on her latest single “Rock Me Up”.

This is pure bubblegum pop and a clear effort to appeal to pre-teens. I’m not confident she’s able to pull it off: Do today’s young things really want to hang with their singing auntie? Still, “Rock Me Up” is upbeat and danceable, and owing to Senhit’s ‘tude and flair, rather memorable. Sadly, the production strips her voice down to nothing, reducing her to a Katy Perry wannabe, or perhaps Mandy Moore.

Enunciation isn’t Senhit’s strong suit. But this song isn’t driven by lyrical content. It’s a studio dance single that testifies to Senhit’s ability to cross over into unexpected genres. Senhit may have released plenty of forgettable songs in the past. But “Rock Me Up” leaps out as one of her best efforts.

Rating: 3/5

It’s quite a good song, just not for her! Can’t help feeling awkward that someone mid 30’s is singing a teenage song. Better than her Eurovision attempt though, old fashioned and out of tune/barely speaking in English for most of the time.
