    While I’m not a die hard Cobra Starship fan, I do enjoy the singles I’ve heard and what I’ve heard of their last album. Plus, lead singer Gabe Saporta is very hot. I remember first hearing about the band when the movie and title song, “Snakes on A Plane” was released. I loved both the song and the video.

    This new single, “Good Girls Go Bad” (available on iTunes May 12th) features actress/singer, Leighton Meester of “Gossip Girl” fame. Meester is in the middle of recording her debut album for Universal Republic, working with such notable producer/writers including JR Rotem (Leona Lewis, Rihanna), Kara Dioguardi (who co-wrote “Good Girls Go Bad”) (Kelly Clarkson, Ashley Tisdale), Polow Da Don (The Pussycat Dolls, Ciara), Harvey Mason Jr. (Britney Spears, Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson) and Spencer Nezey (Jupiter Rising).

    The Cobra Starship track is actually pretty likable. I can’t say that I’m surprised. The big question mark for me was Leighton Meester’s vocals. I guess I’m always hesitant when an actress becomes a singer. In all honest if the artist put outs a quality song and/or album, I don’t care what sort of artist they are. Leighton’s “Gossip Girl” co-star, Taylor Momsen and her band just reportedly got signed to Interscope Records. Again…if it’s quality music, I’m all about giving it a chance.
