The UK's premiere soul queen returns from a successful tour with a soulful follow up to "Shoulda Woulda Coulda". Though I'd be intrigued to hear Bev singing the lines "You are gold! Always believe in your soul..." this simple, self-penned track is not a cover of the 80s Spandau Ballet hit, but a heartfelt ballad about self worth. Speeded and scratched up from the piano-led album version, the radio edit loses a bit of emotion, but still takes full advantage of Bev's amazing vocals. Prepare to melt.

"Shoulda Woulda Coulda" finally gave Beverley Knight a long overdue Top 10 hit. Will this do the same? No. Frankly, that's because it's just a spectacularly weak version of the aforementioned song, lacking in the soul of her previous releases. It's not bad, but is just generally rather dull and tame. Expect this to go Top 20, but only because this week is so dead.
