While the tune isn't quite as urban as the Rihanna/Beyonce-style music that Jessica has repeatedly claimed she wants to record--or as soulful as the amazing Prince cover she performs as one of THE highlights of this year's Idols Live Tour--it's still a great potential single for her. One of my biggest gripes about 16-year-old Jessica during her "Idol" run was her tendency to sing sleepy cabaret-diva ballads that aged her, so I think this radio-friendly, upbeat direction is a very wise move.
The song also uses the world "hella" a lot, which I endorse. Hey, it worked for No Doubt, right?
So why couldn't this have been Jessica's proposed coronation song instead of "Change Nothing"? If it had been, her "Idol" fairytale, so to speak, may have come true.
What do you think of Jessica's new song? Is this the right direction for her? Let me know.
