US singer Hilary Roberts is back with another beautiful single, ‘Fight To The Other Side’, and my goodness it is powerful!
I first became aware of Hilary Roberts after her cover of ‘Back To Life’ earlier this year which absolutely blew up, topping dance charts everywhere! This new song, however really shows her range as a more emotive singer.
‘Fight To The Other Side’, like ‘Back To Life’, shows off her incredibly powerful voice and smooth tones. Unlike the hit dance anthem, however, it is a more thoughtful ballad with some orchestration which gives it that power. The track itself also lends itself to the Justin Timberlake-esque R&B drum patterns. In fact, it really reminds me of Rihanna’s ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ era.
This is not a discredit to Hilary at all, as her voice is a lot less “pop-y” than Rihanna’s and, arguably, carries a lot more soul. I’m really hoping that she releases an album this year! I’ll most likely be writing a lot more about Hilary Roberts. I can see her becoming a huge success!
