‘I don’t wanna go to sleep
I wanna stay up all night
I wanna just screw around..’
Poignant lines from glitter-pop princess Ke$ha’s second single ‘C’mon‘ from her sophomore album ‘Warrior‘.
The Dr Luke and Max Martin produced single just got the video treatment, and has peaked at # 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 so far. It should rise further as the first single ‘Die Young‘ slips down the charts further after being yanked off radio stations following the school shootings in the US. ‘Die Young‘ managed to peak at # 2 and is already a bona fide smash both in the US and UK.
Am I feeling the song? Umm, it’s ok (ish). It’ll grow on me I guess. I love the bridge when she sings the above lines, soaring to a crescendo after which the chorus takes over. It’s not exactly a dull song, but there’s nothing new about it as well.
Personally I’d love to see the title track ‘Warrior‘ get a befitting video, and a release as the third single. That should probably get the fast-plummeting album back up the charts after a rather dismal # 6 début.
As of now, here’s Ke$ha getting it on with a bevy of stuffed animals in her new video ‘C’mon‘.
