If you haven’t heard of Adam Lambert by now you really need to be keeping up; runner up on last year’s American Idol, he has since released a FANTASTIC pop album which has charted WORLDWIDE with tracks penned by Lady GaGa, Pink and Max Martin to name but a few.
His second UK single is ‘Whataya Want From Me’ and was written by Pink and Max Martin (pop songwriter extroadinaire – think Britney’s ‘Baby One More Time’, ‘3’, Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Since U Been Gone’, ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ – basically all amazing pop songs). The song has already charted worldwide, #3 in Canada, #10 in the US, #4 in Australia and #1 in Slovenia (lol), and now it’s our turn to get this TRULY FANTASTIC SONG to the top of the charts where it shall reign free.
In fact, ‘Whataya Want From Me’ was originally written for Pink’s album ‘Funhouse’ but didn’t make the final cut. But as we know from Britney’s flirting with and then ditching of GaGa’s ‘Telephone’, not making the final cut the first time doesn’t at all signify bad things. The song itself is basically a ballad but an upbeat one. Give the song a chance if you don’t like it at first, it is a grower for some.
It’s released in the UK July 19th but available to download right now from his album ‘For Your Entertainment’.
