Leighton Meester Has Been Around The World

“Somebody To Love” is the first track to leak out from the debut album by Gossip Girl starlet Leighton Meester, and the Robin Thicke-assisted song is an odd choice for a first single; it’s a subtle track that was obviously meant to sound really good during the waning hours of clubbing, with its washed-out, sparkly backdrop and Meester going on about being so bored with the world’s romantic offerings in a barely enunciated murmur. I was kind of lukewarm on it at first, but it’s turned into quite the grower! It also makes me wonder if her album is basically going to consist of her shape-shifting her persona to fit in with whatever guests she’s wrangled into each song, since “Somebody” is pretty much the antithesis of her Cobra Starship collab “Good Girls Gone Bad.” Clip after the jump.
