Kaci Battaglia Channels Britney, Christina & Rihanna on New Single

Kaci Battaglia - Crazy PossessiveKaci Battaglia isn't a name you should recognize, but hopefully it will be one you'll recognize in the not too distant future. Formerly known by her first name only, 21 year-old Kaci Battaglia has been singing since she was young. Signed to Curb Records at a young age, she went on to release a few pop/dance singles. Her second single was the one I remember, a cover of "I Think I Love You," with a dance remix from UK remixers, Almighty.

Kaci BattagliaWhile her last single was released in 2007, her sound up until now, has remained fairly innocent and young. Sugary, bubblegum, fluff-pop. Not bad, but not very relevant as far as contemporary U.S. radio is concerned. Her new single, "Crazy Possessive" is going to change all of that!

Kaci Battaglia
UK music site, Popjustice, accurately compares the song to Britney's "Womanizer," Christina Aguilera's "Keeps Gettin' Better" and Rihanna's "S.O.S.," going as far as to name it last Friday's "Song of the Day." Remixes are by Digital Dog so far. This song is going to be massive! It is released on iTunes May 26th.

New Music: Cobra Starship feat. Leighton Meester

Cobra Starship - Good Girls Go Bad

While I'm not a die hard Cobra Starship fan, I do enjoy the singles I've heard and what I've heard of their last album. Plus, lead singer Gabe Saporta is very hot. I remember first hearing about the band when the movie and title song, "Snakes on A Plane" was released. I loved both the song and the video.

This new single, "Good Girls Go Bad" (available on iTunes May 12th) features actress/singer, Leighton Meester of "Gossip Girl" fame. Meester is in the middle of recording her debut album for Universal Republic, working with such notable producer/writers including JR Rotem (Leona Lewis, Rihanna), Kara Dioguardi (who co-wrote "Good Girls Go Bad") (Kelly Clarkson, Ashley Tisdale), Polow Da Don (The Pussycat Dolls, Ciara), Harvey Mason Jr. (Britney Spears, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson) and Spencer Nezey (Jupiter Rising).

The Cobra Starship track is actually pretty likable. I can't say that I'm surprised. The big question mark for me was Leighton Meester's vocals. I guess I'm always hesitant when an actress becomes a singer. In all honest if the artist put outs a quality song and/or album, I don't care what sort of artist they are. Leighton's "Gossip Girl" co-star, Taylor Momsen and her band just reportedly got signed to Interscope Records. Again...if it's quality music, I'm all about giving it a chance.

Britney Spears: On Your "Radar"

When I heard the news that the new Britney Spears single (her fourth from Circus) would be "Radar," a track originally due to be released as the final single from Blackout, I was disappointed.

Now that I've had time to sit back and think about it a little more, I'm not as disappointed. Sure, Circus has many single-worthy tracks, but honestly, so did Blackout. Britney's label stopped promoting Blackout, instead putting their energy and funds into the making of Circus. This was probably a wise decision. I believe I read somewhere that "Radar" was included as a bonus track to satisfy some sort of contractual obligation that the label had with the producers and/or writers...something like that. I can't for the life of me find this article though, so if anyone knows what I'm talking about please send me a link!

Britney SpearsProduced by Swedish duo Bloodshy & Avant, the track is catchy and while I personally hate the chorus, it's not the worst thing I've heard. It's slowly settling in and I'm becoming more and more comfortable with the label's decision. I'm sure once I hear the remixes and see the video, I'll be even more OK with "Radar" as a single.
