Hot Video Alert: Kimberly Caldwell - Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys
I'm loving Kimberly Caldwell's new single, "Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys," more and more with every listen and now, with the premiere of the video it's safe to say that the song is well on it's way to becoming one of my anthems this winter. The radio-friendly single was co-written by Tommy Henriksen, singer/songwriter BC Jean and Zac Maloy. The single is very reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson to me and not in a bad way. Caldwell's lower register is her strong-suit, vocally. Girl has got PIPES and boy does she deliver on this up-tempo Top-40 pop anthem.
Kimberly Caldwell is probably best known for her stint on Season Two of American Idol (Season 10 premieres tomorrow on Fox) but she's been keeping busy every since. "Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys" appears on Caldwell's debut album, Without Regret, due out April 19th on Vanguard/Capitol Records. The album also features Caldwell's first single, "Mess Of You." Without Regret is shaping up to be a solid debut, featuring production by Marshall Altman, Tommy Henriksen, John Mark and MachoPsycho. Assisting Caldwell on songwriting duty, we have a bevvy of talent including Kara DioGuardi, Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, BC Jean, and Lucie Silvas to name a few - Caldwell herself co-writes on at least four of the album tracks! Impressive!

**EDIT** According to Pop In Stereo, we're going to be getting some hot mixes for the song too from the likes of Digital Dog, DJs From Mars, Jason Nevins and Lucky Date. Sounds AMAZING! Can't wait to get my hands on these.
