Ms Scandalous puts the 'Ladies First' with her debut album

Published: Tue Apr 05 2005

It's hard to believe that Ms Scandalous has only featured on one track to date. But when you consider that appearance was on Panjabi Hit Squad's 'Hai Hai' - the second biggest Bhangra record of the past two years after Panjabi MC's 'Beware of the Boys'- then you realise that here was a debut with a difference.

2005 promises much more with the release of the Ms Scandalous debut album 'Ladies First' which will showcase her as a major new UK talent. Now only 20 years old, Scandalous has found lyrical inspiration easy to come by in putting down verses for the album, starting with the area she grew up in Southall, West London,

"They don't call Southall 'Little India' for nothing. On a Saturday afternoon on Southall Broadway you feel, with all the bazaars, street-traders, mango sellers and sari shops that you're in the middle of India…But then you might hear some Hip-Hop out of someone's ride and you realize this is West London, this isn't a Bollywood film, this is real. This place where I grew up has made me who I am and gives me a lot of inspiration for my lyrics. I wouldn't have wanted to grow up anywhere else, this is me. I'm proud of my roots".

Signed to Panjabi Hit Squad's (BBC 1xtra/Def Jam) own label, Ms Scandalous is adamant to join the small clique of artists in this niche scene able to take their music to the world, and is not one to give up lightly; she wants to bring it to the forefront for the ladies,

With the determination that Ms Scandalous holds, coupled with the catchy promo track ‘Aaja Soniya’ (taken from her debut album) which is already been playlisted by BBC 1xtra & MTV Base, ‘Ladies First’ is a sure fire hit for this ladies debut, it has all the ingrediants for a hit - sexiness, sassiness and Ms Scandalous.
