About This New Aqua Single "How R U Doin?"...

Danish soul legends Aqua have a new pop-dance trash single coming out in Europe on Monday called "How R U Doin?" (Is it getting a U.S. release, as well?)

My ass finally got around to playing it, and at first it just sounds like a knockoff of Far East Movement and Dev's "Like A G6," but if Max Martin had produced it along with the Cataracs. It's also got shades of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite." Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. In fact the song become kind of an earworm after the third listen—if you give it that much of a chance.

Here's Lene and the gang in the studio recording "How R U Doin?"

At least it's better than "Back To The 80s," which landed (rightly so) on Chart Rigger's 10 Worst Singles Of 2009 list. Still, it's no "Spin Me A Christmas."

    Supposedly out on Itunes US on Monday but I haven't seen anything to confirm.

    Can't say I really like it but I like Aqua so i will support it in hopes that better tunes are on this 3rd album.
