Song Of The Day: "Losing" by Becky Hill

So far, the Voice UK has got two promising talented alumni compared to the US version. I think it's time we give up on these other shows and try to bring American Idol back to its best. Based on that photo, 21 year old singer-songwriter and Voice semifinalist Becky Hill would agree with me. This big-voiced starlet was mentored by our favorite melisma addict Jessie J and was probably the only one worth watching. Like fellow alumna Leah McFall, her talent seemed a little too good for the show and she's done rather well for herself as a featured vocalist, working with Rudimental and Oliver Heldens (which reached #1 across the pond).

As a solo artist, we don't have much to go on with Becky. Her first promo single "Caution To The Wind" didn't exact set my pop sensors on fire and seemed too critically aimed to ever be enjoyable. But thankfully, her BFF and supremely talented pop producer MNEK brought her to the light with her real debut single "Losing.""I'm through with Losing" is a pretty great lyric. Ms. Hill somehow sounds like she isn't even trying to sound so powerful over the bouncy, 90's leaning tune that signifies two things. One, this is a certified hit and two, we haven't even scratched the surface with Becky Hill.
