Shark in the Water is the third single from British singer/songwriter VV Brown. It was used in the promo for Season 10 of Degrassi (specifically, the Boiling Point). Even since its release on May 21, 2010, the promo & song have become one of the most iconic in Degrassi history. The video features the cast (first one without any of the original members) as performers, proprietors and customers of a carnival and drops hints for plot points of the tenth season.
