Freebase

  1. Bout

    "Bout" is the sixth single from British R&B artist Jamelia and the first single from her second album Thank You. Overall, "Bout" is fairly ignored as a single and "Superstar" is widely regarded to be the first single from the album. "Bout" was the single that bought Jamelia back into the public eye, after being away for three years. The single was a minor hit, in fact it was the smallest hit from Thank You, managing to peak at #37 on the UK Singles Chart, spending only two weeks inside the UK Top 75. There were two videos shot for "Bout" but the one that featured Rah Digga has never been commercially released, because Jamelia was unhappy with the finished product. The video was re-shot but without Rah Digga because she had other commitments. The second video did, however, retain Rah Digga's rap.
