Song: One
Artist: Sky Ferreira
Album: One

Sky Ferreira is an American singer, model,  and actress that has had the "next big thing" tag stamped on her by a couple magazines and entertainment outlets as one to watch in 2011.

Ferreira got her start in her hometown of Los Angeles singing in church, and at fifteen, started her own MySpace page where she uploaded songs and built a small following.  As a fan, she reached out to production duo Bloodshy and Avant (Who are responsible for some of Britney's biggest hits; "Toxic," "Piece of Me," & "Radar" as well as make up indie-pop act Miike Snow) and they decided to work with her.  They have produced several tracks from her debut album which is scheduled for release sometime this year, including first European single, "One."  Here in the states, the first single will be "Obsession," which is a little more straight-forward pop-rock in the Pink/Kelly Clarkson vein.

"One" has been growing on me quite a bit, a mid-tempo eletcropop track with a swirling beat and stuttered vocals.  As a singer Ferreira doesn't offer anything quite that different, but she's either lucked out with Bloodshy & Avant, or there is more to discover with this girl.  I'm usually weary of model/singers... but this girl is a little interesting.  She's going to be the face of the new Diesel campaign, so we'll just have to wait and see which, modeling or music, makes her name.

Keep an eye out for this one.
