About to Pop: Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift + More Singles
Congratulations to Boys Like Girls! The band’s single ‘Be Your Everything’ dominated last week’s About to Pop voting, a huge feat on its own, but especially when your up against Justin Bieber‘s army of fans! Boys Like Girls received almost half of the readers’ votes in our About to Pop poll, which means ‘Be Your Everything’ will receive 20+ spins on PopCrush’s weekend radio show this Saturday and Sunday. Check out a list of stations where you can tune in by clicking here.
This week, Alicia Keys is kicking off the About to Pop competition with her strong, girl power anthem ‘Girl on Fire.’ Will Ms. Keys be able to come out on top with her moving, soulful vocals, or will she be overtaken by Taylor Swift, who has been on a roll lately with singles from her latest album ‘Red.’ Swift’s five-star rated single ‘State of Grace’ is in the running this week, so we’ll see if fans are loving the uptempo tune as much as we are.
While Keys and Swift are two musical forces to be reckoned with, any one of the other nominees in this week’s poll could be crowned the new champ. Neon Trees are up for this week’s About to Pop win with ‘Lessons in Love (All Day, All Night),’ another infectiously upbeat pop-rock jam from the quartet, but this time with a little more edge than their previous hit ‘Everybody Talks.’
Then there’s Calvin Harris, who teamed up with soul-quaking vocalist Florence Welch for the invigorating yet melancholy house tune ‘Sweet Nothing.’ Finally, we’ve got the Ready Set‘s ‘Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever),’ a high-energy, electro-pop party tune with a simply sweet sing-along chorus.
