CJ Holland, ‘Night & Day’ – Song Review
Nashville-based newcomer CJ Holland was discovered when he posted YouTube videos demonstrating his singing and dancing skills, which led to a performance on 'Ellen' and the attention of major record labels.
Now, the 17-year-old is signed to Universal Republic / Lava Records and has released his first original track, 'Night & Day.'
The song presents a rhythmic pop vibe in the same vein as Justin Timberlake and Usher. Holland is clearly a fan of Michael Jackson, based on his vocals and the dance moves he shows off in the 'Night & Day' video teaser.
The danceable synth-pop song features the teen singing about a girl he has his eye on. He sings, "Hey, I don't wanna rush love so let's take time / You know that it's ok if you're a little bit nervous, so am I," and promises, "I'm taking every step to make sure you're satisfied."
It's obvious Holland has a ton of talent. 'Night & Day' feels fresh and Holland looks and sounds like a performer who is likely to make a lot of noise in the pop music world. The song is expected to appear on his debut album, which he has been recording with A-list producers Stargate, Claude Kelly, Rico Love and JR Rotem.
