Girlicious Attempt to Pick Up The Pieces with New Album

From classy to trashy. I cover it all here on Music Is My King Size Bed. Being the reality TV junkie that I am, I've been following super slutty girl group Girlicious (made up of Nichole Cordova, Natalie Mejia and Chrystina Sayers) since their sordid days on that low-rated, critically panned music competition on the WB/CW... The Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious. Since 2008 they've had a moderately successful career in Canada but have yet to release anything more than a digital EP and a song taken off of the Jersey Shore soundtrack ("Drank").

The girls' saucy, not-so-sophisticated debut self-titled album peaked at #2 on the Canadian album charts and produced two Top 20 tracks ("Like Me," "Stupid Shit"). The first official single, "Like Me" peaked at #4 in Canada while low-grade B-Side "Stupid Shit" managed to scrape in a #20. Third single "Baby Doll" only managed to make it to #55. After the departure of original member Tiffanie Anderson, a label switch (from Geffen to Universal Music Canada) the girls began work on their sophomore effort, releasing "Over You," "Maniac" and "2 In The Morning." The latter, released at the end of August, made it all the way up to #38 and stalled. I honestly don't understand where these girls are going wrong. Granted, there's nothing GROUNDBREAKINGLY original about their sound (they were formed by Pussycat Dolls/Paradiso Girls founder Robin Antin) but their singles have all been moderately catchy. I am liking their more electro-pop sound (versus the urban pop sound of their debut) but I guess it's not making much of an impact North of the border.

Rebuilt, the girls' sophomore effort, is due for release on November 22nd in Canada and is currently available for Pre-Order on the official Girlicious website. The CD also features the album's tracklisting:
Face The Light
2 in the Morning
Unlearn Me
Wake Up
Sorry Mama
What My Mama Don’t Know
Over You
Hate Love
Noticeably absent from the album? "Drank" - their addition to the Jersey Shore soundtrack. How disappointing! The light at the end of the tunnel for me is that there are remixes coming out soon for second single, "Maniac." Check out the CCW Radio edit here, originally Tweeted by Sayers. If this album doesn't do it for the girls, nothing probably will. The girls Facebooked/Tweeted recently:
"Girlicious is stronger than ever and here to stay! R new record, tour announcement & much more coming! We luv R fans! Werk!" 
I hope this all means good things for the girls. I'd love nothing more than to see them succeed. I'm just keepin' it real.

For real, these Girls deserve more success than they've had, Maniac had such GREAT video, it's the best song everrrrr, and they can all sing and dance, I'm crossing my fingers that Rebuilt does really well
