When I heard that Danielle Bradbery had a new single out for the summer it made me smile. It’s been four years since she was the star of The Voice. She stood out that season with an incredible voice. That was the first thing that made me take notice. She just sounded professional and polished. Ready for stardom.
She released her first album later that year. It sold pretty well after being fueled by the first single, which went to #12 on the radio charts.
But things have been a little slow since then.
Danielle, though, is only 20 years old. It’s good to see Big Machine sticking with her as she finds her place in music.
Here is her new single.
Sway – Danielle Bradbery
This has a nice groove. Just something a little fun for the upcoming summer. It could be a song about being in love and enjoying the moment. Or it could be about hanging with your friends. Laughing and having a good time with them. Or it could even be about hanging out on your own just dancing around to some great music.
As usual, Danielle nails the vocals. I think they did a good job with the production on this one. It’s a little country, but mostly sounds like a modern pop song. I think in this case that’s a good thing. It sounds fresh and cool.
I could go either way with this one. I’m not sure how country fans will react. I’m pulling for Danielle. This one could be a big hit, but we’ll have to see how folks react.
Chart Estimate: #15
