About to Pop: Jason Derulo, Phillip Phillips + More Singles
Way to go, Chris Rene, who is the newest champion of our About to Pop series! The ‘X Factor‘ alum came over a lot of hardships to make it to where he is today, and we couldn’t be happier that Rene’s ‘Young Homie’ is the latest About to Pop track. You can tune in to our weekend radio show this Saturday and Sunday (June 2 and 3) to hear ‘Young Homie’ when it airs on more than 20 stations nationwide!
This week, Jason Derulo and the newest ‘American Idol,’ Phillip Phillips, are leading our fresh batch of About to Pop contenders. Derulo is hoping to come out of the competition ‘Undefeated’ with the help of his 2012 single, while Phillips’ original song ‘Home’ is also in the running. Rita Ora is also vying for her chance to become the About to Pop victor with her track ‘How We Do (Party),’ as are Gym Class Heroes with their Ryan Tedder-featured tune ‘The Fighter.’ Finally, up-and-coming songstress Bean is giving it another go with her song ‘Cops and Robbers.’
Which track is About to Pop and will get your vote for this week? Are you digging Derulo’s new dance track, which has a bubbly feel perfect for summer? Or perhaps Phillip Phillips’ organic sound and mellowness are breaths of fresh air in a world dominated by synth and Auto-Tune? Maybe Rita Ora’s effervescent, feel-good tune has your ears perking up? Or perhaps the Gym Class Heroes song is more suited for your musical taste? Have you become a Bean fan and are rooting for her?
Have a listen to each song and vote for your favorite track below. You have until 3PM EST on June 4 to cast your vote, and the winning track will air the following weekend on the radio stations listed here. Good luck!
Rules: The song with the most votes will get aired on the PopCrush Top 20 syndicated radio show, which airs on over 20 radio stations across the United States.
