Hot Video Alert: Girlicious - Maniac
I'm a little behind with this one, but Reality TV girl group Girlicious have a new single out in Canada called "Maniac" and while it's NOT BAD, I'm not 100% sure why the Robin Antin-formed group did a complete 180, doing a dance/pop record rather than continuing on the R&B/Pop-route. The girls' self-titled debut album peaked at #2 on the Canadian Albums Chart, yet it remains unreleased (physically) here in the States, despite landing the #2 spot on Billboard's "Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles." For one reason or another, the girls became popular in Canada and focused all of their promotional efforts up North.
After the ousting of member Tiffanie Anderson, the group seems to be forging onward as a threesome. No longer signed to Geffen, the group signed a new deal with Universal Music Canada. I'm still optimistic that they'll do something here in America...but with first single "Over You" getting only as high as #52 and "Maniac" peaking at #74...it's not looking good for Girlicious. Hey...at least they reached #32 on the Serbian charts! I still maintain that "Maniac" is fun for what it is...a Pussycat Doll-like dance/pop radio romp.
