about

In the footsteps of Jay Kay (Jamiroquai) - Helena May is conjuring her own sound of Dance-Funk in 2020.

Helena May has firmly established herself as one of London’s top vocalists, performing and working alongside some of the industry’s top names. Since her introduction to Austrian bass guru Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher’s Funkestra) in 2016 - their live and studio collaborations led to the release of their ‘funkified’ album ‘Part of Me’ in 2018 on RSB Records. Continuing her work with RSB Records, Helena May is proud to announce her debut-solo single ‘Dance’ ft NDC (Andreas See).

lyrics

Dance! Shake it down on the dance floor, oh. Oh, dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh.

Oh dance. Shake it down on the dance floor, oh. Oh dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh.

I went down to meet, my party family. When ever they’re around, I can’t hold myself down. They play my favourite song, we’re dancing all night long. We move up and down. We shake it, we shake it!

Moving up, moving down. Shake it side to side, we shake it all around. We’re moving up, moving down. We shake it all around, and I remember.

Moving up, up. Moving down, down. Shake it side to side, we shake it all around. We’re moving up, we’re moving down. We shake it all around!

Dance! Shake it down on the dance floor oh. Oh dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh.

I’m strolling to the bar to grab the water jar (water jar!) Then I see my friends, they say “hey come dance”. Here comes my favourite song, we’re dancing all night long. We it move up and down, we shake it, shake it!

When you held my hand, made me understand. That music is the key, liberating me. Curtis Superfly, he makes me feel so high. The beat is tight, outta sight. I won’t forget that night, no.

Dance! Shake it down on the dance floor oh. Oh dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh.

Feels like the first time, but I know it won’t be my last. I won’t forget the feeling on the floor. I remember all the soulful records, crackle with the funky bass, yeah. I won’t forget the first time on the floor.

Up up, down down. Shake it side to side, we shake all around. Up up, down down. Shake it all around.

Moving up, up. Moving down, down. Shake it side to side, we shake it all around. We’re moving up, we’re moving down. We shake it all around!

Dance! Shake it down on the dance floor oh. Oh dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh.

Oh Dance! Shake it down on the dance floor, ohh. Oh dance! Just like James - like James Brown. Get down and dance now, oh. Dance, dance, dance!
