Thomas Fiss is our newest About to Pop victor, with his feel-good track ‘Let Go’ garnering the most fan votes! This means ‘Let Go’ will receive 20+ spins on radio stations all across the country this weekend on our Top 20 countdown broadcast. On top of this accomplishment, don’t forget that he managed to beat out artists like B.o.B and Gym Class Heroes — a huge feat for a newcomer. Congratulations, Thomas! 

This week brings a new batch of About to Pop tracks to the polls. Pitbull makes an appearance with his ‘Men in Black 3′ theme song ‘Back in Time,’ which features a sample from Mickey & Sylvia’s ‘Dirty Dancing’ song ‘Love in Strange.’ Next up is ‘X Factor‘ alum Chris Rene, whose laid-back tune ‘Young Homie’ is catching a lot of attention. Gym Class Heroes are back with ‘The Fighter,’ so we’ll see if they’ve got what it takes to be crowned the About to Pop champ. Finally, Havana Brown‘s club banger ‘We Run the Night’ featuring Pitbull is in the running, and newcomer Bean is in it for round two with her track ‘Cops and Robbers.’

So, PopCrush readers, out of these five songs, which do you want to hear blasting through your speakers? Are you partial to Pitbull’s ‘Back in Time,’ or maybe Chris Rene’s chilled-out vibes are really getting you into the summer mood? Perhaps Gym Class Heroes’ ability to blend pop, hip-hop and rock on ‘The Fighter’ really grabs your attention sonically? Or maybe Havana Brown’s ‘We Run the Night’ is more your flavor? Could Bean’s ‘Cops and Robbers’ be your new favorite tune? Vote below!

The poll will remain open until 3PM EST on May 28, 2012, so be sure to vote before then! Also, tune in to PopCrush’s weekend radio show to hear the winning About to Pop track (see a list of stations here).

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.
