I don’t know whether to LOVE or HATE our boy ‘Archie.’ On his season of American Idol, I didn’t really like David Cook’s genre of music but thought he was super talented. David Archuleta was talented too…but his music was kind of bland. The new Archuleta single, “Something ‘Bout Love” comes out digitally July 20th on Jive Records and I’m on the fence about the song. Written by Archie and the writing pair S*A*M and Sluggo (the duo behind Metro Station’s “Shake It“), it doesn’t really do ANYTHING for me. It’s a fine, average pop song but there’s no WOW factor. Let’s be honest though, “Crush” wasn’t anything brilliant either yet it managed to climb to the #2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. I guess if Archuleta is happy releasing SAFE pop music time and time again, then so be it. I, for one am getting a little bored.
