Today we’re looking at the new single from Lauren Alaina. The American Idol alum has been searching for her first big hit. She’s had a handful of songs now that have cracked into the top 40 on the country charts, but she’s never been able to really breakthrough with a big hit.
Will this be the one?
Next Boyfriend – Lauren Alaina
The song is certainly catchy. I think it’s the right blend of pop melodies with Lauren’s country voice. And people have always really been drawn to her personality and character. That’s why she did so well on Idol.
And this song seems like a step in a good direction. It’s flirty and there are a few country songs out there now that are like this. It reminds me a little bit of what Kelsea Ballerini is doing with her music. They’re girls that are having fun just being young and enjoying all parts of life.
So for that reason I think this song does have a good chance to be a hit. I don’t know if it will reach that top 20 or top 10 status, but you never know. It’s certainly possible.
I think we’re seeing a sea of change in country right now where women are pushing their way back onto the charts. It’s a difficult time for any artist to breakthrough in country music and it’s been especially difficult for women, but that’s changing right now.
Hopefully this one does well for Lauren.
