The Shindellas Hits That Stick Like Grits (Slim CD)

Regular price $ 10.00
/

In the introduction to The Shindellas’ debut album Hits That Stick Like Grits, released in September, an ominous beat builds a head of steam with booming bass and a whistling G-funk synth line. In short order, the trio stakes its claim, singing: “Why nobody singing like the rent is due? / Why nobody standing up and speaking truth? / Someone’s gotta do it / So we’re paving the way / And we got a whole lot to say.” As the beat gives way to some classical-style piano on the way into the next song, appropriately titled “Money,” a whispering voice asks “Who hungry?”

Fans have been eagerly waiting for Hits That Stick Like Grits since the group teased the record in 2019. Across its 14 tracks, The Shindellas — Tamara “Tam” Chauniece, Stacy Johnson and Kasi Jones — do indeed sing like the rent is way past due. The trio is a true vocal powerhouse, and they eschew the idea of a lead singer in favor of trading verses and singing in glorious three-part harmony.

Produced by Louis York
