Pop desperately needs Jessie and the Toy Boys.
Jessie is real, remarkable, and raw at all the right moments. On her debut EP, Show Me Your Tan Lines, she architects a striking, sexy collection of electro-infused pop that'll make you forget all about a certain someone who shows up to awards shows in giant eggs.
All kidding aside, if anyone has the heart to unseat Lady Gaga at the top, it's Jessie & The Toy Boys. Over the course of the EP, Jessie's sultry delivery sparks up the dance floor. "Money Makes the Girl Round" kicks off with a dubstep-style drop before rolling into propulsive buildup with Jessie belting out an unforgettable hook complete with her singing, "Cha-ching". The verse bounces with a hip-hop swagger, yet Jessie doesn't need to rap to show grit. It's an unforgettable anthem that needs to be licensed by every one of those Real Housewives shows ASAP.
"We Own the Night" shows a different side of Jessie. It reaches heavenly heights that could fill any stadium as the spacey sonic swells blast off into a divine chorus. However, mid-song, she shows another side, quickly firing off a hypnotic bridge at light speed. "Push It" was meant for the clubs, and it's the sexiest jam of the summer, getting down and dirty. YelaWolf even drops a grimed up signature voice that adds another dimension of awesomeness to the track. Everything converges upon the elegantly catchy "Summer Boy", which paints a vibrant picture of love in everyone's favorite season.
This is everything that pop music should be, and Jessie is on the way to taking over. Jessie's about to heat arenas up all over the country on the Femme Fatale tour with Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj.
Everyone's going to be chanting Show Me Your Tan Lines along with Jessie soon.
