About to Pop: Gym Class Heroes, Bean + More Singles
First off, we'd like to congratulate the Wanted, whose new song 'Chasing the Sun' won in the latest About to Pop competition. This Saturday and Sunday (May 19 and 20), fans will get to hear the quintet's second U.S. single blasting through their speakers on PopCrush's weekly radio show. Now, the time has come for five fresh songs to battle it out in this week's About to Pop challenge, with singles from Gym Class Heroes and pop newcomer Bean making the cut.
Gym Class Heroes might already have a spot in our Top 20 countdown for this weekend with 'Self Back Home,' but the band is competing for About to Pop airplay next weekend with their latest single 'The Fighter,' which features OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder. Bean is also competing to become next week's About to Pop featured artist with her track 'Cops and Robbers.' Although she may not be a familiar name to you now, Bean's sultry voice on this piano-driven pop song will surely have you asking for more.
On top of these two tracks, B.o.B is also in this week's About to Pop running with his Taylor Swift-featured track 'Both of Us,' while Nelly Furtado also has a chance of becoming our newest victor with 'Big Hoops (Bigger the Better).' Finally, singer Thomas Fiss is returning for round two this week with his new hot single 'Let Go.'
Listen to all of this week's About to Pop tracks below and vote on your favorite. You have until Monday, May 21 to vote, and the poll will close at 3PM EST.
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.
