American Girl

Song: American Girl
Artist: Bonnie McKee
Album: American Girl

Here's one that has a chance* to be this year's "Call Me Maybe..."

*small chance

You might not have heard of Bonnie McKee, but you know her work.  She's been the writer behind some huge pop hits of the last few years, and now she's getting a push as an artist in her own right.  Here's a list of a couple songs she's co-written:

California Girls, Last Friday Night (TGIF), Teenage Dream, Part of Me, Wide Awake - Katy Perry
C'mon - Ke$ha
Dynamite - Taio Cruz
Hold it Against Me, Oh La La - Britney Spears
Let There Be Love - Christina Aguilera

You can see the full list here.

"American Girl" gives me huge Katy Perry vibes, specifically "Teenage Dream."  Perfect for Summer, but will pop radio bite?  You never really know.

Bonnie released an album, Trouble when she was 14, and since has been focusing on songwriting.  The new album has yet to be titled or given a release date.  A proper video is expected soon, but in the meantime she happened to get all of her famous friends to make a "Call Me Maybe"-esque viral video for her song. (see below)

You can download the song for free here.

Always pulling for a songwriter to make it on their own.
