Singer-songwriter extraordinaire Bonny McKee, described by Rolling Stone Magazine’s ‘Best Secret Weapon‘ in 2011, has penned some of the biggest hits of the past few years – including an insane eight # 1 singles.
Of course, the world at large is relieved that the woman has FINALLY unveiled the highly anticipated video for her new single ‘American Girl‘, and I’m literally addicted to this one y’all!
This is the woman responsible Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream‘ era, not to mention career-defining singles for Ke$ha, Taio Cruz, Rita Ora, Kelly Clarkson, Kylie Minogue, Avril Lavigne, Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera, Carly Rae Jepsen and Britney Spears – and I’m not surprised that McKee’s ‘American Girl‘ sounds like something straight out of an album that either of the above mentioned artists may have recorded, especially Katy Perry.
McKee’s not exactly new to the singing scene either, having released her début album ‘Trouble‘ way back in 2004. Her success was limited as far as being a singer was concerned, but it was potent enough for her to be noticed by songwriting giants like Dr Luke and Max Martin, following which she rose the ranks as the go-to songwriter – especially after Britney’s ‘Hold It Against Me‘ debuted at # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Undoubtedly the next big pop star in the making, Bonnie McKee’s ‘American Girl‘ is everything that a massive pop single should be, and some more. The soaring chorus gets stuck in your head in no time at all, and the colorful clip as everything that an extravagant Katy Perry video should be.
Not that I’m complaining at all.
McKee parties hard in the summery clip, YOLO-ing it out with her friends, and basically announces her arrival as the next big thing. And oh, those vocals aren’t anything to sleep on – she’s got them pipes!
Get ready for the McKee reign y’all!
