Leak Report – 20.06.10

The Leak Report gives you nosy fans a run down of tracks/demos that have leaked during the week. Hit or miss? Let the snap rating system be your guide.

Miley Cyrus – Liberty Walk

I wish I could stop this involuntary eye roll every time ‘Can’t Be Tamed’ comes on because, truth is, I’m feeling the emancipatory themes in these new Miley material. Having said that, ‘Liberty Walk’ sounds more like an album opener than proper single material.

Nonchalant snap.

Mark Ronson feat. Q-Tip – Bang Bang Bang

Producer du jour Mark Ronson is threatening his third album with ‘Bang Bang Bang’ leading the pack. This beat is begging for me to throw down and just krump.

Lightbulb snap.

Flo Rida feat. David Guetta – Club Can’t Handle Me

Nor do they want to. Much as I’m not a fan of Flo Rida, I have a horrible feeling this will be the new ‘I Gotta Feeling’.

Nonchalant snap.

Faith Evans feat. Snoop Dogg – Way U Move

Faith Mama, the last time we heard you out in Australia was when the Freemasons did a mercy remix of ‘Mesmerised’. The gays loved it. Any chance of a repeat act for the dance floor? ‘Way U Move’ is either a slow jam waiting to be skillfully remixed or just another mid-tempo destined to pass us by.

Nonchalant snap.

Kristinia DeBarge – Bulletproof

Young Kristinia scored a perfect ten with pop perfections like ‘Goodbye’ and ‘Sabotage’ on her debut album. She really didn’t need to step down to Jordin Sparks-ly balladry.

Lightbulb snap.

Ke$ha – Lovers In The Deep End

Make this bitch stop. I’m aware that Ke$ha‘s demos are leaking left right and centre but they’re never worth writing home about. ‘Lovers In The Deep End’ – delightful title by the way – is just another synth-ridden piece sung in her typical crunk/irreverent style.

No snap.
