Shellem is the professional name of singer, songwriter and guitarist Shellem Sanchez Trinch. The independent Filipino artist made her international professional solo recording debut in 2022. However, the multi-talented creator comes from a history of live performances in bands across Manila, Singapore and her home province of Palawan, Philippines.
Inspired equally by popular Western music and her Filipino roots, Shellem’s sound is a unique mix of the new and the traditional. The prolific singer has released five singles since her debut. They range in style from reggaeton to hip-hop and pop.
“Latin Lover” is a new single from Shellem, released worldwide via all major streaming services on November 30, 2022. A Spanish guitar introduces the track as the singer steps to the mic for a romantic tale. She tells a sexy story of dance and romance, starring herself and the title character. The man himself joins her in the song’s second verse.
The track’s infectiously catchy hook rides a funky Caribbean-infused rhythm as the pair delivers their story of love on the dance floor. The bass plays a laidback dance groove as syncopated Latin percussion adds to the song’s island vibe.
