Cute-as-a-button Colbie Caillat is a new kind of rising music star--she really made her name on the internet, especially through Myspace. Unsigned by any record label for months, her Myspace page generated millions of plays as, through word-of-mouth, she became a huge internet favorite. And when her debut album, Coco, was released, it hit #5 on the Billboard charts in its first week. It's quite a story.
Our featured video this week, then, is "Bubbly," one of the hottest songs off Coco. We predict it'll end up in a TV ad any minute now--seriously, the song is an Ambien commercial just waiting to happen--but the video itself does a great job of featuring Colbie's sunny, girl-next-door disposition and easygoing musical charm.
If our captions this week seem strange and dissonant to Colbie's myriad fans, please remember that Framed is a blog meant to inform and entertain, and also that we're pretty drunk right now.
