Album Review: Jessica Sanchez’s “Me, You & The Music”

Jessica Sanchez is proving herself to be quite the chameleon! Fresh from her re-launch on American Idol (where she performed her lead single, “Tonight” with Ne-Yo) and current appearance on Glee (as Frida Romero of the Hoosierdaddies, one of New Directions’ competitors at Regionals), the emerging young singer experiments with new sounds on her just-released debut album, Me, You & the Music.

She showcases her diverse musicality with a selection of different styles within the realm of Pop, R&B, Urban, and Dance – also throwing in a bit of reggae (“Don’t Come Around”, which samples Tom Petty‘s “Don’t Come Around Here Anymore”) and Spanglish (“No One Compares”, a duet with Prince Royce) into the mix. Fans will appreciate and adore her sweet ballads about holding onto and lamenting over love (“Crazy Glue“, “Plastic Roses”), but it is her upbeat and catchy mid- and up-tempo tracks (“In Your Hands”, “You’ve Got The Love”, and my personal favourite, the hip and addictive “Drive By“) that are the surefire stand-outs. Two of the most memorable tracks are the ones that kick off and close out the show: the commanding techno groove “Right To Fall” (a song about fighting for the right to love who you want to love) and the punchy and sassy “Gentlemen” (an anthem for the ladies who demand to be treated with respect they deserve – where have all the good men gone / without a lady you would’ve never been born).

Me, You & the Music is a invitation to catch a glimpse of what Miss. Sanchez has to offer musically – which is a very youthful, fun, and energetic contemporary R&B/Pop vibe that’s guaranteed to make her a force to be reckoned with!

Jessica Sanchez and Ne-Yo’s “Tonight”

Diva-in-training Jessica Sanchez is about to launch into stardom!

The American Idol Season 11 runner-up returned to the stage that started it all to share the story of her journey since last May’s finale – and what a ride it has been!

From experiences with international tours, performing at special events, and modelling, to an upcoming guest appearance on Glee, the frontier is looking real bright for Sanchez.

Her first single, “Tonight”, which features R&B musician, Ne-Yo, is a fun, fresh, funky, and fabulous dance track about escaping from the stresses and drama of everyday life.

The duo debuted the live performance of the song on Idol, and Sanchez unleashed her BB Chez alter-ego by singing and dancing it up a storm like a dynamo.

If her re-introduction is any indication, Sanchez’s career as a young R&B/Urban artist is going be astronomical!

Jessica Sanchez’s debut album, “Me, You & The Music” will be released on April 30th and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes, Amazon, and JessicaSanchezOfficial.com.

We about to hop up on this rocket

American Idol Season 11 Live Tour

Concert Review: American Idol Live! Tour 2012 in Seattle

The American Idol journey is far from over after the confetti has been swept away from the finale stage. Every summer, the Top 10 Idols embark on a cross-country summer tour, during which they get to sing for all of the fans who supported them on the show. Without the stress of the competition on their shoulders, the Idols soar to new heights vocally, managing to both impress and gain new fans through the live concerts. This year’s Idols proved to be no exception! After witnessing the American Idol Live! Tour in Seattle on July 18th, I can declare without a doubt that this is one of the strongest Top 10 in years, and is now my second favourite group, right beside the illustrious Season 7 Idols.
