The Saturdays' "Gentleman" Vs. The Wanted's "Walks Like Rihanna"

After Chasing The Saturdays aired on the E! channel here in the States and failed to help the British hooker troupe crack the US market, the network will once again trying its pop luck with The Wanted Life in the fall. Yay for sausage?

At any rate, both The Saturdays and The Wanted have new singles out, which I've managed to somehow avoid until now. It's not surprising — I've been busier than Farrah Abraham in a Van Nuys Motel 6 (though, not in that way — if only). So I finally decided to have a listen.

First up is "Gentleman."

It's not quite the PSY cover I was clamoring for, and I'm not sure how to feel about these hoes rapping about Ryan Gosling, Weezy and George Clooney. Still, musically, the whole Janelle Monae/almost-neo-soul thing is a nice break from the generi-dance that's become The Saturdays' forte.

Next: "Walks Like Rihanna."

Woeful, desperate title for a song that's actually "okay." It's not awful. This is Dr. Luke, isn't it? At this point, he should really be dragged to a dark room and beaten until he comes up with a new sound.

Hate the game, playa. Hate the game.
