One of the great stories last year was Cam and her big hit, Burning House. The song reached #2 on the charts and was one of the biggest singles of the year.
That’s huge for a new artist. It’s really hard to breakthrough into the mainstream. I thought her first single, My Mistake, would be the breakthrough but it took one more single to make it happen.
Now the challenge is to keep that momentum going. Let’s listen to Cam’s new single.
Mayday – Cam
After the last single and now this one you get the feeling that Cam, like many, has struggled with relationships. This song is about someone that is in a relationship that they know should be over. The two don’t seem to get along, but they keep finding each other in the arms of one another.
It’s like they’re magnets to each other. They can’t stay away. There is something there keeping them together no matter how much they fight to end things. That’s where the sentiment comes from to call mayday and look for someone or something to step in and help with the break.
The song has a different sound. It seems modern, but the production is pretty held back. The lyrics and the emotion really come through on this one and I think it’s another strong showcase for who Cam is. We’re starting to really get a feel for what she wants to do with her music and it’s pretty cool.
What do you think of this song?
Is it another hit for Cam?
