Caméléon (album)

Caméléon is the fourth album by French singer Shy'm, released on 25 June 2012 on Warner Music France. Most of the material was written by Louis Côté and Cyril Kamar, with some contributions from Tiery-F and by soFLY & Nius; the album expanded on the Pop sound of previous album, Prendre l'air abandoning the R&B sound that Shy'm had developed. Songs like "Et alors!" were Shy'm's first experiments with the dance genre. Caméléon was Shy'm's first release since her victory on Danse avec les stars in winter of 2011 and the re-release of the successful album Prendre l'air at the same time. Shy'm worked with long-standing collaborators K. Maro and Louis Côté on the album but took her sound in new directions. In an interview with ChartsinFrance.net, She stated it was "a continuation of the previous album" but that there had been "an evolution". Influences for the album included the dubstep scene. Shy'm had no hand in writing on the album, as she felt "I do not have a natural talent for it". Production of the album was completed in just two months.
