“Sauce” is Shantel Giselle’s single and video inspired by the confidence she taught herself, after growing up as an orphan. Over a Trap beat with psychedelic synths, cool robotic hi-hats and deep bass hits she rhymes with a smooth and confident flow. Shantel incorporates elements of Reggaeton into her rap style as well as her beats. In the video she stands defiantly in front of a graffiti wall, declaring to all who will listen the she has “the sauce.”
I wanted to write a kickass song for any and all who were made to feel less than in their lives. I wanted SAUCE to be a song that would remind listeners of how amazing they are, to always have confidence in themselves, and to bravely stand up for themselves if the world tries to ever tear them down again.Shantel Giselle
