No Gravity

Album: No Gravity (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track from Barbadian R&B singer Shontelle's second album. She explained the album title to Digital Spy: "Any artist will tell you about the struggles and ups and downs of trying to break through. I feel like I've passed the first album test, I have fans in different parts of the world, and now I have to gel it all together and make it blossom into something much bigger. I feel like, 'OK, you've got to have nothing in your way. There's going to be no gravity and you're just going to keep floating higher and higher'.' It's a mantra that I wanted to adapt to the entire project."
  • Shontelle told MusicRemedy.com the story behind this song: "Its like a cute love song really. I was literally just thinking about what you feel like when you have that love - it just makes you so happy and excited and you really do feel like you're walking on thin air in a bubble and singing 'la la la.' That's literally what it is you're just happy to be in love. And so you feel like there's no gravity, you're just floating through space."
