If you're like me then you probably haven't heard the name Suzanne Smith. However, New York City native Suzanne has been around for a while singing and writing hit songs.
She first recorded under the moniker "RadioVenus" and for the group created by Giuseppe D called "Boulevard East." The song from Boulevard East was called "Let Me Feel Your Arms Around Me" and went to number one in Greece and Spain.
Two years ago Suzanne released "American Girl" and now she's returned with "Closer." Remix team Al B. Rich delivers some infectious beats in combination with Suzanne's seductive vocals. Al B. Rich is comprised of Albert Castillo and Rich "Riddler" Pangilinan. They have also recorded under the moniker "Mynt" which they have used when they work with Kim Sozzi. Also, Albert was part of the remix team "Cibola" (with the Chavez Brothers) who remixed singles for Gloria Estefan, Mikaila, and Jocelyn Enriquez.
"Closer" is an evocative song about love and the power it has over us when we become enamored with someone we first meet. My favorite part of the song is when Suzanne sings "you're gonna fall in love with me."
