Canadian Teen Heartthrob Brock Zanrosso Looks To Crack America with New Single
If you don't live in Canada then you probably haven't heard of teen singing sensation Brock Zanrosso. This talented guy has been singing forever but really rose to national attention when he appeared as a finalist on the Canadian reality competition "Next Star" on YTV. Last year Zanrosso released his first two singles, "Push The Walls" and "Edge (End Of The World)" which started getting airplay in his native Canada almost immediately. Working with Hipjoint Productions (Kreesha Turner, Kelly Rowland) on both tracks, Zanrosso began to develop his sound as an artist, opting to go in a more pop/R&B direction a la American singing heartthrob Jesse McCartney.
With the release of Zanrosso's third single, "Perfect Storm," (ABOVE) the 16 year old Canadian looks to make a name for himself notoriously cruel U.S. pop market. The song (which is already heating up the Canadian Billboard Emerging Artists Charts) is a fun, pulsating electropop track complete with a catchy hook, really showcasing Zanrosso's impressive vocal stylings. As catchy and fun as Zanrosso's U.S. debut single is I really don't know if it has what it takes to do well here in the States, given how many similar artists there are on the radio right now. I can definitely see where the Adam Lambert, and David Archuleta comparisons come into play, but seeing that Archuleta was just dropped from his label, I don't know if that's a good thing. Let's hope he has more Adam Lambert-type success. That being said, I really wish for nothing but the best for this talented newcomer. He's definitely got what it takes to go far.
