Video Premiere: Shontelle's 'Perfect Nightmare'

October 2, 2010 (4:36 am) GMT
The 24-year-old Barbadian singer/songwriter is in a desperate denial that her boyfriend actually is a 'Perfect Nightmare'.

's latest music video for her single "Perfect Nightmare" has made its debut on VEVO. In the Colin Tilley-directed clip, she sings away her frustration over the fact that she can't tell her boxer boyfriend goodbye although she has been hurt for so many times.

"Perfect Nightmare" is to follow ballad track "Impossible" which reached No. 13 on Billboard Hot 100 amidst the many club songs sitting on the U.S. singles chart. Both singles are taken from Shontelle's second studio album "" which despite the chart performance of "Impossible" could only sell 7,000 copies in its opening week.

Shontelle rises her tempo in "Perfect Nightmare" because she wants to stray away a bit from the ballad tracks which have become her stereotype. "I just wanted to do a single that would be more up-tempo because most people know me for ballads," she told Neon Limelight. "I was just like 'no! I want y'all to know I'm a party girl.' So 'Perfect Nightmare' did just that perfectly."
