Looks like all of those #1 Billboard Dance Hits finally did the trick. Kimberley Locke is finally releasing a dance record! After topping the dance charts with the remixes for “Fall,” “Change” and “Band Of Gold,” Kimberley Locke is releasing a song that has me dancing even BEFORE the remixes are released. “Strobelight,” produced by Cutfather and Paparazzi is pure disco-pop perfection. I’ve always loved Locke’s sound…despite note watching American Idol during her season. While R&B isn’t always my cup of tea, you can’t help but stop and notice talent when you hear it, and Locke’s got talent! “8th World Wonder” is still one of my jams! Whatever Randy Jackson did to help make this possible – Randy, Dawg…I thank you!
Now that we’ve heard the first single, I’m intrigued to hear what the rest of the album is going to sound like? Is it all going to be up-tempo or is THIS going to be the one club track on the record? I’m all for a bit of variety, but Kimberley! This is what I want to hear! Locke is already out promoting the record, hitting up Miami last week at the Winter Music Conference and says via her MySpace Blog that some media and TV appearances are being finalized. It appears that Locke has her sights set on conquering the Billboard Dance Chart for a fourth time with her new single. According to Locke via Twitter, remixes are in the works including a remix by the incomparable Tony Moran. EEEEE! I wonder who else is on the remix?
“Strobelight” is out digitally next Tuesday, April 6th. Get it on iTunes folks! In the meantime check out Kimberley Locke’s American Idol blog on US Magazine online!
