“ANGEL EYES” LOVE & THEFT
When it comes down to tough choices, finding the best of both worlds is often the ultimate option. When it comes to the perfect woman, Usher described her as “a lady in the street and a freak in the bed”. One of hottest new country music bands, Love & Theft, describe her in a similar but more subtle way: “Saturday night she’s rockin’ out by the bonfire, Flirting from that tail gate and crankin’ up the dial, Come Sunday mornin’ she’ll be singing with the choir,Drivin’ me crazy with that kiss me smile——-
There’s a little bit of devil in those angel eyes
She’s a little bit of heaven with a wild side.”
“TROUBLE” CHRIS RENE
Simon Cowell’s X-Factor is about to start their second season in the U.S. New judges, Britney Spears and Demi Lovato, have been described as divas with their biting criticism of the new singers trying out for the show. Chris Rene stole the heart of many on the first season with his autobiographical hit, Lil Homie. The song was dedicated to his little boy and described Chris getting clean from drugs and wanting to make his little boy proud. He’s back with a new single, Trouble, that has a perfect Jason Mraz-like Top 40 hook and will have you smiling and singing along.
