Annie Plays Her Trump Card
ARTIST: Annie TITLE: “Two Of Hearts” WEB DEBUT: Oct. 2, 2008
ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: The Norwegian pop singer’s long-rumored cover of Stacey Q’s hi-NRG classic–produced by Richard X–is pretty straightforward, with an extra freestyle-styled breakdown near the end and Annie’s slightly chilled voice taking the place of Ms. Q’s come-hither southern California drawl. One bit of bad news came along with this leak, though: Apparently Annie’s label has decided to push back her forthcoming album Don’t Stop, which leaked over the summer, to–wait for it–April 2009. Which I guess means they’re going to scrap the leaked version and start over, because honestly, what the hell?
