    New music alert!

    Lena Fayre has released her breakout single "Belong to You." She is merely 16, but Fayre's clarion, crystalline voice bears the same beauty and precision that made Lauryn Hill famous at roughly the same age. The track is an original – a catchy, well-written original – but like the explosive fireworks display of a NASA rocket's ignition and liftoff, this is only the beginning for Fayre.

    For Fayre herself, at least, the song's style represents a deliberate shift from the typical contemporary attitude of pop music. Of this she writes, "From the beginning, I did not want to do bland pop songs that go in one ear and out the other. Initially, I leaned the other way." How far this experimentation leaned, listeners may be surprised to hear. "Some of my early songs were rock songs inspired by bands like Paramore and Evanescence," she said." Ultimately, I decided that I want to make music that is more mainstream and fun to enjoy with my friends. So, now I focus on creating pop music with my own stamp, which I call 'a touch of urban edge.'"

    The urban edge she speaks of is certainly present, yet no more obvious than a yin spot in a yang swirl. Overall, "Belong to You" is a composition of fantastic taste and musicianship, one no fan of pop music should miss.

    Listen to "Belong to You" below. It belies her age, doesn't it?
