"I Put a Spell on You"

"Sky" is a song co-written and recorded by British singer and DJ Sonique. It was released in September 2000 as the third single from the album, Hear My Cry.


On the website there are two reviews for Sky. Ben Cook gave the song 4 of 5 stars with the opinion: Sonique returns to follow up the massive single "It Feels So Good" with a much better song. "Sky" is a sort of dance/trance track, similar in style to her previous one. It's been getting plenty of radio airplay, so this will almost certainly be a Top 10 hit.

Robert Black gave 5 of 5 stars: After the absolutely massive success of "It Feels So Good", it's time for Sonique's all important second single. The former was No. 1 for three weeks, and she could top the chart again with this fantastic grower. It's similar in style to "It Feels So Good" in some ways, though perhaps better. With powerful vocals, stomping beats and a great atmosphere, it's obvious Sonique will be around for quite some time. [1]
