Forgotten Songs! – This Week – Stuck With Each Other

There are so many songs that are out there everywhere then all of a sudden they disappear and you only hear from them on cheesy countdowns run by music channels over Christmas if you are lucky.

So roll up and welcome to Forgotten Songs where we celebrate these forgotten wonders.

Stuck With Each Other – Shontelle featuring Akon

Today we look at a song that was also on the soundtrack for the RomCom film Confessions of a Shopaholic. Stuck With Each Other was released on the 10th February 2009 in the US and the 21st May 2009 in the UK, it was the second solo single from R&B artist Shontelle and featured the musician Akon.

Stuck With Each Other was written by Rodney Jerkins, Diane Warren and Katenna Harper, it was produced by Darkchild and released under the record label of SRC and Motown Records. The song comes from Shontelle’s debut album which was called Shontelligence. The song did reasonably well in the UK and it reached number 23 in the UK Charts.

I remember this song because I remember it went along with the Shopaholic films and to be honest that was the best thing about the film (the movie ruined the book narrative so it made me very angry as a fan of the original.)

Re-listening to the song now 11 years later I still like it, the melody is calming and its got some really nice lyrics. I am not sure if it is Shontelle’s strongest single but it is catchy and feels like it is from a film, so I am glad that it is
