‘Youngblood': Throw Your Hands Up for Hilary Duff’s Joyous ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Soundtrack Song
A few months after releasing her sparkling folk-meets-dance-pop comeback record Breathe In. Breathe Out. — which remains a solid listen to this day, even if nothing else comes of it (#JusticeForOneInAMillion) — the "With Love" pop princess has blessed her ever-loyal Little Duffsters with a taste of new tuneage, courtesy of the Jem And The Holograms soundtrack.
"Youngblood," which also features Jem actresses Aubrey Peeples and Stefanie Scott, finds Hil in pure party-pop mode, prowling the night for fellow warm-blooded warriors to simply let loose and have a good time.
"If you got game, boy / You can pass go / We can go fast or we can go slow," she playfully teases above squeaky beats, distant yelps and a stomping pulse. While the verses sound similar to Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" at first (paging Lauren Conrad and the rest of The Hills crew), Hil quickly throws her hands up and gets down with her Holograms pals in a frothy, chant-filled celebration.
While not quite as exciting as anything on Breathe In. Breathe Out., "Youngblood" feels like an appropriately cheery, super catchy contribution to a movie about young musicians following their bliss and becoming teenage superstars. Get loose, go grab somebody!
Also, a song called "Youngblood" sung by the star of Younger? We see you, Hilary. Get that promo.
