I’m not afraid to admit: I love mainstream music. Every week now, I plan on writing about a current song, and although I primarily enjoy pop, some other genres could be included as well. And just because it’s pop doesn’t mean it’s mainstream either.
My first pick is surprisingly not a Gaga, Rihanna, or Ke$ha hit. It’s Jessie J.
In case you don’t know who she is, she’s the one who sang “Price Tag,” another good song. And she’s British! (That gives her an extra point on my clipboard for some reason. It must be their charm… or their infectious accent.)
Anyway, the reason why I enjoy this new single, “Domino,” is quite odd actually. I like this song because it sounds like Katy Perry, but it isn’t.
And trust me, Katy Perry isn’t even featured on this track: it’s all JJ. Not original? Pfffft! Her vocals make up for it! Take a listen for yourself…
Bright, bouncy, quirky, and summery (it’s a word!), this song will help me though those winter blues and will definitely land on my summer 2012 playlists. For some reason, I can play this song on repeat with no problem; I usually can’t even repeat singles I really enjoy but it’s just a personal quirk.
Ms. J, “Price Tag” made me think you would be a one-hit wonder, but “Domino” made me interested for future singles and a new fan. Bravo!
