Song Of The Day: "Lionheart" by Sophie Elise

We have entered an age where Vine stars somehow get a Billboard Top 20 song on their first try. Youtubers are dropping covers and EPs left and right, which are much better quality to be honest, and fans eat it up like candy regardless of what they hear. 

It's all very Jonas Brothers Syndrome but we do get music every now and then, don't we One Direction? The older generation appears to underestimate the power that social media and fandoms have these days, but just wait till a President is elected based on the number of his Twitter followers.

This has all been a roundabout way of introducing up and coming talent Sophie Elise to the pop game. With all the Viners, Youtubers, and Instagrammers trying to break it in the music industry, it's about time a fashion blogger shows them how it's done. Sophie happens to be a rather famous fashion blogger from Norway (just got 20x better) and "Lionheart" is her first single. From one listen, it's a pretty epic song that ticks off all the marks for a stadium-sized international hit. Sophie also has a pretty great voice despite not making sense with the lyrics (what exactly is a Lionheart?). But that's how many popstars get started, with people singing words you made up. One word: Discostick. 

Anyway, here is Lionheart.
