Kaci Battaglia Is Bringin' Sexy Back With New Single, 'Body Shots'
It's been over a year since Kaci Battaglia released her last single, "Crazy Possesive (I'll Muck You Up)" but the wait for a follow up is FINALLY over. "Body Shots," Kaci's second single off of her as yet untitled new studio album is a dirty, raunchy club smash, similar to "Patron Tequila" by The Paradiso Girls (who also waited FOREVER between singles) in that it's a song about drinking in a club. The single features Ludacris on token rap detail, which i actually think adds to the song here. This is one of those fun club tracks that doesn't really have much in the way of substance. I feel like with "Crazy Possessive" we at least had a story, where the girl was paranoid about her man cheating on her. With "Body Shots" what you hear is what you get. No hidden meaning, no deep insight into anything - it's about a pretty girl bringing all the boys to the yard and promising them rivers of booze flowing off of her hot body.
With remixes by Dave Audé, Mig & Rizzo, Ray Roc & Gabe Ramos and WAWA it's likely going to be another #1 Club Hit for Battaglia, following "Crazy Possessive (I'll Muck You Up)"which went all the way to the top on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart. I actually think that Curb should release one of the remix edits as the single version. Nothing against the original version of the song but I think one of the remixes would take it up a notch or two. While I haven't heard the WAWA remixes yet (technical difficulties over on Masterbeat), the Audé and Mig & Rizzo mixes are quality. No word yet on when the single will be released, but seeing as the remixes are now available exclusively on Masterbeat, it can't be much longer, right? Listen to the original version (above) PLUS a couple of the remixes below and let me hear your thoughts. Battaglia has come a LONG way since her days of covering The Partridge Family's "I Think I Love You."
