Melodically, the tune's verse reminds me a bit of Demi Lovato's "Give Your Heart a Break," and the anthemic chorus is very Branch/Lavigne/Clarkson, with an upbeat theme of friendship. (The song has a wholesome message, despite what the phrase "put it on me" has implied in other, mostly hip-hop songs; the "it" Angie is referring to is an emotional weight that a friend is carrying alone).
This seems like a good direction for Angie, who's really a Christian pop-rocker at heart, though this tune will be a bit of a grower for me.
Fans will get to hear "Put It on Me" live for the first time this Friday, July 19, when the Idols kick off their tour in Kent, Washington. What do you think of Angie's new song?
