Aussie princess Jacinta is unleashing "Can't Keep a Secret," the follow up to her club hits "Destination" and "Sunshine." The catchy and uplifting pop/dance track is everything that you could want in a club hit - a strong song, excellent vocals, and incredible remixes.
Dance music traces it root to disco, the music that came from the underground black and gay clubs in the 70s. The dancefloors united and equalized as people danced to classic songs that shared positive uplifitng messages like "I Will Survive" and "Ain't No Stopping Us Now." "Can't Keep It a Secret" is about being true to yourself, sharing your life, and being open about who you are. More than any song in recent memory, its a liberating story that we can all embrace. Vocally, Jacinta is reminiscent of a young Olivia Newton-John, with a soft angelic voice in the verse that builds to a powerful raspy tone in the chorus. The power and emotion of her voice sells the song and makes you believe it.
Can you tell how much I love this song? Of all the records I heard at Winter Music Conference, this was the one that stood out the most. Hearing Jacinta perform it live and seeing the crowd response really brought the message home. Its a total pride anthem material yet its also appropriate for anyone who is going through a struggle. Clubs and radio stations should be all over this.
