“THAT’S MY KIND OF NIGHT” LUKE BRYAN
On CMT, they recently ran a special documentary on the pre-release of Luke Bryan’s new CD, Crash My Party. Luke Bryan and his producer, Jeff Stevens, discussed Luke’s meteoric rise and discussed how “Crash My Party” needed to be epic to keep the momentum rolling. The lead single has become one of the summer’s anthems. But after releasing a sexy ballad, Luke needed to come back with something high energy. On the TV special, they warned us….”That’s My Kind Of Night” is a return to the party vibe Luke first generated with “Country Girl (Shake It For Me)”. It’s going to be a huge concert favorite and I’d be shocked if it doesn’t go straight to #1 on the country charts.
“HOLY GRAIL” JAY-Z and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
Is there any doubt this song isn’t going to hit it big? Jay-Z even named his latest CD, Magna Carta Holy Grail (love these rappers keeping it humble and real!)”. If the star power of Jay-Z and JT on the track isn’t enough, the song was produced by The-Dream, Timberland, and J-Roc. Add in a sample of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” that Courtney Love had to approve, and you’ve got production overload. Ian Cohen at Pitchfork Media called it “laughingly overblown” but it’s already become a monster international hit as the lead single from the new CD.
