Christine Saadé – Get Together (Ft. Twisted Dee)
Phoenician and Canadian born singer, songwriter and social activist Christine Saadé has amassed quite a following during her brief musical career and stands ready to gain many more with the release of her latest single “Get Together”. To further strengthen the song, Saadé employs the services of popular DJ/producer Twisted Dee and the final result is a song crackling with musical inspiration and ceding center stage to a commanding vocal from Saadé. Her voice has tremendous melodic value but, as well, possesses surprising grit that colors her singing with undeniable passion. Twisted Dee’s effect on the production is noticeable because the track maintains a restless, insistent rhythm from the beginning and has a meaty sound while still remaining light on its feet. There’s airiness in the performance that’s impossible to ignore; it’s muscular but gives the music space to breathe and rarely stops moving.
The lyrics are never too wordy or dogmatic – instead, Saadé fervently communicates her hopes and desires without ever sacrificing any of her considerable technique. There should be no mistaking her chosen genre on this track, dance pop, as evidence of some talent vacancy. Christine Saadé is not just an energetic singer, but the way she tightly winds her voice around the backing tracks shows that she’s a genuine musician. Though it doesn’t figure into this song, she’s a multi-instrumentalist as well with a skill for both guitar and dumbek. These talents enable her to embody the themes and virtues of personal uplift and positivity that she depicts in her music. Her presence is never hectoring, but instead, encouraging and inspiring.
The musical strength of the song comes from its production and how well assembled it is. It’s laid out in such a way that crescendos come at dramatic points in the song and those moments help accentuate how sharp the songwriting is overall. There’s no wasted motion here. An artist of this caliber enters the studio with a clear idea of what they want to accomplish and surrounded by the right musical and production team to help realize those goals. Christine Saadé isn’t a self-indulgent pop star; instead, she sings and writes like some possessed by a personal muse to create and communicate with the widest possible audience.
Commitment and talent with the right people behind you equals success. Christine Saadé works with the best in her genre, evidenced by the appearance of producer/DJ Twisted Dee on this song, and these shrewd decisions help her expand on the potential of her material. Her performing virtues are evident; even the harshest critic would confess she has a commanding presence in the song that works in perfect accord with the music. “Get Together” provides compelling entertainment, a danceable track, and an important message conveyed by a memorable vocalist. Her mastery over every facet of the track is impressive and it has all of the necessary elements to engage her fan base and bring new fans into the fold.
