It appears that pop radio is going to sound a little different this fall with new album releases by Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and Jessica Simpson. Let's also not forget a potent new Nelly Furtado single. That means out with James Blunt, Natasha Bedingfield, Fall Out Boy and the Pussycat Dolls.
A few big questions remain. Will Scissor Sisters be able to cut into the mainstream pop charts in the United States with their '70s inspired glittery pop rock on "Ta Da" that is expected to hit stores in September? I think it is possible, but as usual their label needs to make them a priority.
The same can be asked about the Killers' yet-untitled new album that is also expected in September, and will supposedly serve up a grander sound. Rumors indicate that the group's new single is titled "Bling." It is a clever move by the Las Vegas foursome to disguise the song with a title that makes it appear like an urban track and will surely be noticed by mainstream radio programmers who are obsessed with hip hop and rap.
And by the way. What happened to Pink? Did her second single after that first gimmick song just fizzle or what?
