Picks and Pans Review: Hot Singles
BRITNEY SPEARS “Ooh La La”
Brit’s song from The Smurfs 2 makes her sound like a cartoon character in that gooey chorus. Call her Chirpy Smurf.
CHER “Woman’s World”
It’s not “Believe,” but this fist-pumping anthem shows that, at 67, Cher can still rock the EDM (electronic dance music) planet.
JOHN MAYER “Paper Doll”
“You’re like 22 girls in one,” sings Mayer, perhaps referring to ex Taylor Swift (and her song “22”) on this bittersweet beauty.
JACK JOHNSON “I Got You”
Just in time for summer, JJ gets you good with another piece of folk-pop sunshine complete with a whistling refrain.
