Jamelia singles chronology
"Something About You"
"Beware of the Dog"

"Something About You" was the first single from English R&B singer Jamelia's third album, Walk with Me.[2] The single was released on 11 September 2006.[3] Jamelia described the sound of the single as being more "experimental" [4] and not as R&B as her previous material. Its sound can be likened to other Soulpower productions like JoJo's "Leave (Get Out)" and "Coming For You" which meld rock and pop characteristics.

Her official mailing list confirmed that the single would be released on CD, DVD, 12" vinyl and download formats. The video for the single was premiered on 14 August 2006 and peaked at #6 in the UK TV airplay chart. "Something About You" also climbed into the top 5 on the UK's radio airplay chart, peaking at number four in its third week. "Something About You", released as a download single first, charted at #28 upon its download release on the official UK singles chart, the second highest new entry on downloads alone in that week. The physical formats were released one day after the song had charted on downloads only. The single rose to #10 in its second week on the chart based on 13,455 sales, and rose again to #9 in its third week. It has just debuted to Australian radio, where it was the most added song for the week from 4 February 2007.


Even though there was a single edit released with the CD single, this version is identical to the album version.

Music video[edit]

The video premiered on Channel 4 in August 2006

The video begins with 2 scenes alternating between her doing various poses against a glass window and her standing by a bed, showing the camera zooming out to show a man. Halfway through the video, Jamelia is having what seems to be a tea party on a grass and one scene shows her in a thin walkway with white walls.
