Say hello to Kristinia DeBarge. She is a woman from America.
Here is a song she has done — it's called 'Goodbye' and it's got a good bit in it which the pensioners among you might recognise from the 80s hit parade.
Yes it's basically Rihanna's 'SOS' Part Two and yes Rihanna probably turned it down and yes it's not reinventing pop but please take the following into account:
1. It really is quite a toetapper.
2. You can totally imagine it being a massive hit in every country except perhaps Belgium but that says more about Belgium than it does about this song innit.
3. If this was a Rihanna comeback song everyone would go "this is a bit like 'SOS'" but they would also go "this is the perfect Rihanna comeback tune for reasons too obvious to go into".
More information about Kristinia DeBarge (how amazing is that for a popstar name): she's worked with various interesting people, she's from California, she's signed to Island Def Jam in America (you'd probably already guessed that) and she's currently featured in a Nivea skincare commercial (?!) in the States, and there is another great(ish) song called 'Make A Girl Happy' on her MySpace.
