    UK pop star on the rise gives us an exclusive acoustic performance of current hit "Whistle (While You Work It)"

    Our Artist of the Week Katy Tiz is about to take over pop music. You might've heard her smash "The Big Bang" last year, and now the UK singer and songwriter has all the makings of a superstar. It all comes back to the fact that she can strip a song to its bare essence and deliver it with real and raw soul. Her current hit "Whistle (While You Work It)" is climbing up the charts, but she can break it down on an acoustic guitar too. That's exactly what she does in this exclusive performance video. Eschewing the J.R. Rotem production, she brings a different kind of fire to the track.

    The song takes on a lithe reggae-style bounce that quickly builds into that big, bombastic hook. You'll be whistling to it all day. Most importantly though, that massive and majestic voice takes the spotlight front and center. How many pop singers can pull their tunes off acoustic with this much passion and power? It gives the single a whole new life to say the least. The year of Katy Tiz is officially underway. Make sure to "Whistle (While You Work It)!"
