It’s been a minute or two since we heard from Colbie Caillat.
The ‘Bubbly‘ hit-maker is finally back – and this time around, Miss Caillat has given her laid-back mellow beach vibes a rest and unleashed her inner diva.
Caillat teams up with the ever-reliable Ryan Tedder for ‘Hold On‘ – an out-and-out power-ballad that could have well been off Leona Lewis’s début album.
The opening synths and the pounding drums sound very uncharacteristic of Colbie. I’m feeling this change of direction for her.
Vocally, Caillat sounds better than ever, with her vocals blending seamlessly over the powerful instrumentation.
I’m definitely looking forward to her upcoming 4th studio album – scheduled for an early 2014 release. The album follows 2011’s # 6 peaking ‘All Of You‘, which spawned the Platinum-certified hit ‘Brighter Than The Sun‘ co-written by Tedder.
