“Every girl is capable of murder if you hurt her,” warns 21-year-old Cady Groves on her debut RCA Records single “This Little Girl.” It’s an upbeat, edgy pop jam that, aside from it brimming over with the Oklahoma singer-songwriter’s sass and bite, comes packed with solid production work by Kristian Lundin. Have your first listen of “This Little Girl” by newcomer Cady below!

It’s no wonder that Groves, who co-penned her first single with Sean Douglas and Tom Meredith, has a way with words when writing about relationships — she was introduced to Alanis Morissette’s searingly-honest breakthrough LP Jagged Little Pill at age four by her mother!

“I remember she put Jagged Little Pill on in our fifteen-passenger van and I thought, ‘Yeah, this is it.’ It felt like something I could actually do,” says Cady, who grew up in Marlow, OK. “So I would belt out Alanis songs in the van. That was when I started singing.”

Groves also grew up listening to soul-infused pop icons Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. Now, two decades later, she’s finally ready to unleash her own major label album (it’s due out in early 2012).

Here’s “This Little Girl,” the first single off the upcoming LP:

Producer Kristian Lundin is, of course, no stranger to crafting standout pop songs. Britney Spears’ “Born To Make You Happy,” Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” and *NSync’s “Tearin’ Up My Heart” and “Bye Bye Bye” are just four infectious jams he’s had a hand in.

“No other girl could sing these songs, because they’re my life experiences,” Groves says about the material she’s recorded for her debut record. “That’s what I wanted. The album reeks of heartache; it’s about a girl just trying to figure out life.”

“This Little Girl” will be made available as a free download next week at Follow Cady on Twitter at @CadyGroves to find out when, and to be tuned in to more exciting things involving the singer in the weeks to come.

  6. Jess

    ive never hated one of cady grove’s songs, even ones she’s been featured it. shes gone farther than i thought she ever would in such a short time. and im such a big fan that i know much about her life’s history that this song is just so powerful, especially knowing it came from her. this way i truly know that she has had these feelings and she understands other peoples situations instead of other more famous artists like katy perry or miley cyrus where they probably dont know much about it but just sing it anyway cause they’re told to..

  7. Braidon Berry

    This girl and hot and the song makes her even hotter. I love Cady Groves and want to hear more from her.

  8. Bry

    I’m so happy for Cady. When I first met her she was just a small, unknown girl with a huge dream. And now look at her just a year later. I’m so happy for her. She deserves this more than anyone out there.

  9. Molly

    Oh my word. absolutely incredible. Cady is an amazing singer and deserves everything she is going to get from this song.

  10. diana

  11. This song is freakin good and I love it.
    Proud of my momma.

  12. Tara

    This song is so good i couldn’t love it anymore, but the picture on the album cover is so edited you can’t even tell she has freckles. They made her,her just my opinion

  13. jenniebear

    All right song, but where are songs like Last Straw. Cady in the beginning was so real, so raw. Now, so pop? That’s sad, don’t let pop music eat you up, Cady, stand out like you used to.

  14. MollyK

    Oh my gosh Cady it’s great! A part of me wishes that you were still kinda underground, but I’m so epically excited for you and for your new album coming out =] Stay strong, there’s so many people behind you in everything you do!

  15. brena

    its definitely different from her old stuff, but this song is amazing and I really love it!!!!

  16. sean

    Watch the live version of this.. its guitar driven very raw.

  17. Nice Song Cady

  18. She said that she’s always wanted to do pop, she just couldn’t afford the full band. This is her dream.

  19. been in love with this girl sense 2 years ago when i met her at bamboozle. such a sweet heart. and this songg= amazinnn.<3333

  20. Britny

    I’ve been listening to this song acoustically for soooo long and it’s odd to hear it all pumped up. But it’s ammmmmazing!

  21. Christa Levinson

    Congrat´s to a super song! Its a hit! So happy for you Cady!!! :-D
    Say hello to Kristian from me – he totally rocks!

  22. Alex

    Am I the only one who hates this?
    Maybe it’s because I hate her as a person that I can’t stand any of her music anymore…

    She stabbed my friend in the back by cheating with her boyfriend and now Cady and the guy flaunt it in her face every chance they get.

  23. megan

    oh shutup leave her alone every one makes mistakes stop hating on her maybe your just jelous that she got a big break and got away your friend and that guy obviously just wernt meant to be and if what cady apperrently did was so bad then it will come back on her and YES you are the only one that hates her she is amazing!

  24. megan
