Pop minx Aubrey O’Day is back!
While the status of her record deal with Universal Music/SRC remains a mystery, the ex-Danity Kane star is cashing in on her revitalised popularity – owed much to her stint on the current season of Celebrity Apprentice.
The result? ‘Wrecking Ball’.
Released to iTunes today, the cut was penned by American Idol alum Pia Toscano and produced by David Hodge (who cooked up Kelly Clarkson‘s ’Because of You’).
Does Ms. O’Day have a hit on her hands? Judge for yourself after the jump…
Aubrey presents quite the conundrum with this one.
Indeed, though a solidly serviceable “Pop” cut, it’s not a patch on the Pop-Urban she so skillfully sewed together on Oxygen’s ‘All About Aubrey’. Material, which by any measure, was a natural progression from her efforts with Danity Kane.
Still, given the “mainstream” audience she amassed courtesy of Apprentice, this is likely more a strategic move to garner success from a broader audience. Whatever works, ay?
