After Midnight, an infectious pop tune?

Sam Lansky, music writer and blogger of MTV Buzzworthy Blog, mentions on his blog that Paris Hilton’s rumored new single “After Midnight” is “an infectious pop tune that will wedge itself in your subconsciousness for days on end.” He wrote an entire article on Paris Hilton’s debut album and music career. It could easily be one of the most honest and accurate reviews, in my opinion. Everything rings true as you read it:

Oh hey! I’m Sam Lansky — music writer, Twitterlebrity, and occasional celebutante (those last two aren’t true) — and this is my column, Pop Think, dedicated to documenting the most valuable corners of the pop music universe. And in that universe, there’s one star who shines brightest of all for me: The inimitable Paris Hilton, celebrity socialite-turned-media mogul, whose self-titled debut album from 2006 remains on heavy rotation for me even after six years.

See, even though a lot of people directed shade at Paris when she announced her intentions to record a pop album, there’s no denying that she has star quality, which came through loud and clear on her first record, which hit the Top 10 on the Billboard 200. The occasional leak or promotional single continued to suggest that her musical output would be reliably flaw-free, even if it’s been a minute since she’s had an official release.

If anyone can deliver another killer pop album, it’s probably Paris, which is why I’m beyond excited about her upcoming musical project, including a new single featuring LMFAO and an album executive-produced by her boyfriend, uber-hot DJ Afrojack. Brace yourself for some serious pop realness: The music according to Paris is now in full swing.

At first that quote made me think he had actually HEARD the single, but having read the article it’s clear that he hasn’t, and that that’s just his speculation.

He DID hear After Midnight because he says it’s a tune that will wedge itself into our consciousness.

A careful reading of what he actually wrote is that After Midnight is rumored to be her new single.

He does not say he heard the whole new album but, based on After Midnight, he expects the album to be good.

The way the article is written, it’s not clear whether or not he’s heard it. The claim that it’s an “infectious pop tune” suggests that he’s heard it, but then he says, “She’s said that the track is a collaboration with . . . LMFAO.” If he had heard the song, wouldn’t he know whether or not it featured them? Attributing that bit of info/speculation to Paris, rather than stating it himself, indicates he hasn’t heard the song.

It really doesn’t sound like he listened to the song.
He sounds like a fan showing his opinion.

Text comprehension is a dire necessity.

A lot of people is excited about that album, i’ve heard some positive things about it from, of course, the fans and those who “can’t satand her”. It’s gonna be a success, i think. She needs all the support of the fans so let’s buy it! ah, and her drunk text song was even praised by some people, and if the first single is gonna feature LMFAO, it’s gonna rock! just see how party rock succeed. She is amazing.

I saw nothing wrong with the Drunk Texting song either.

Like the reviewer from MTV said, her last effort got her to #10 in the Billboard 200, which is certainly very good.

Her upcoming album will no doubt be good too, no matter what some haters say LOL. Their main problem is that they do not want a girl who is already rich to succeed in anything else.

I just wish Afrojack would get on with it and bring it out already. Can we hope for anytime after Paris appears at the music festival in Brazil?
