Here’s the song that I had on replay this week. The song is “What About Us” by The Saturdays. This song is the U.K. based girl group’s first U.S. single. I’ve heard a few of their other songs in the pass but this one stuck. The song was released in December of 2012 but wasn’t high on the iTunes charts.Within the last two years there’s been a boom in artist debuting in the U.S. Some are calling it the second “British invasion”.
It started with Adele and her soulful balads, continued with boy bands One Direction and The Wanted, and One Direction’s X-Factor season seven competitor Cher Lloyd. The British-Irish group has been appearing on a few late night shows and talk shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Wendy Williams Show since early 2013. The group stars in their own reality show on E! network called Chasing The Saturdays that airs Monday nights at 8:30/7:30 central.
What do you think of the song? Is it something you’d blast in the car or jam to in the club?
