About to Pop: The Wanted, Linkin Park + More Singles
Congratulations to Ne-Yo, who won PopCrush’s most recent About to Pop poll! The R&B chart-topper garnered more than 40% of the fan votes with ‘Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself),’ his latest dance floor anthem, which means the track will receive 20+ spins on PopCrush’s weekend radio show. You can take a look at which stations will air Ne-Yo’s new single by clicking here.
This week, the Wanted are in the running for next week’s About to Pop slot with their brand-new single ‘I Found You,’ a dancey, neo-disco party jam with enough falsetto to shatter a crystal chandelier. And while Linkin Park might be known for their heavier rock sound, Chester Bennington, Mike Shinoda and co. have a potential Top 40 hit on their hands with their electro-inspired track ‘Burn It Down,’ which is also competing for the ATP spot this week.
Also in this week’s About to Pop competition are Latino hit makers Pitbull and Shakira, whose new club jam ‘Get It Started’ proves that two sensational pop stars are better than one. Following Pit and Shakira are Matchbox Twenty and their mellow love jam ‘Overjoyed,’ on which Rob Thomas sounds just as amazing as he did back during the band’s ‘Yourself or Someone Like You’ days. Finally, closing out the quintet of eclectic nominees is Jayme Dee‘s ‘Tip Toes,’ a frothy, upbeat toe-tapper (no pun intended) that highlights the singer-songwriter’s stellar vocals.
Listen to all of the About to Pop nominees and vote for the track you want to hear on our radio show below! Remember, you can vote once per hour and the poll will close on Sept. 17 at 3PM EST.
