Chord Overstreet, ‘Beautiful Girl’ – Song Review
Chord Overstreet plays the lovestruck underdog in his first big release following his rise to 'Glee' fame. His single, 'Beautiful Girl,' is a subtle and catchy way to jump into the musical stream, and makes it clear that the 22-year-old actor/songwriter comes from a very talented family (his brother Nash is in Hot Chelle Rae).
"Can you hear me? / Barely breathing as you pass me by / You're an angel, with a body / Got me crazy without even trying / I'm a mess / I'm a wreck / No one makes me feel like this / Beautiful girl," Chord sings in the first verse, hooking all of the ladies before the first chorus.
The song then picks up with a light dance track and a few great one liners, like when the trouty mouthed heartthrob asks the girl in question, "Do you even know you're beautiful, girl?" Swoon!
We think 'Beautiful Girl' would make a pretty hoppin' club mix, like the kind that gets played around 1:30 AM when things start to slow down. It's certainly a strong first effort on Chord's part, even if it is pretty generic. Given his experience in the industry and his music-friendly name, we're sure this sugary-sweet track will help set him on the road to success in the pop world, as well.
Of course, not everyone can be Justin Bieber.
