Adam Lambert is the newest About to Pop champion… Congrats on getting your guy those most votes, Glamberts! His song ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ will receive 20+ spins this weekend on PopCrush’s Top 20 radio show, which airs in states all over the U.S. Now, it’s time for a new batch of artists, including Rihanna and Usher, to battle for the most fan votes and snag the About to Pop slot for next weekend’s show.

This week, Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’ — the most recent single off the Bajan’s sixth studio LP, ‘Talk That Talk’ — will take on Usher’s club banger ‘Scream.’ British quintet One Direction are also contending for the About to Pop win with their single ‘One Thing,’ as are fellow boy banders the Wanted with their latest release ‘Chasing the Sun.’ Finally, EDM DJ David Guetta and featured artists Sia are also vying for the most fan vote with the house-inspired ballad ‘Titanium.’

So, PopCrush readers, which track do you think deserves a spot on our countdown next weekend? Can’t resist Rihanna’s ‘Where Have You Been’? Are you having trouble controlling your feet when you hear Usher’s ‘Scream’? Are you a diehard Directioner that will vote for 1D, or are you more of a Wanted fan who can’t get enough of ‘Chasing the Sun’? Perhaps you really love the message behind Guetta’s ‘Titanium’? Whatever your reasons, cast your vote for your favorite track below!

You have until 3PM EST on May 7 to get your vote in, and make sure you check out PopCrush’s weekly radio show to hear the winning About to Pop track!

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.
