Remember Karmin, the ridiculously talented Boston-based duo that set the internetz ablaze months ago because of their wicked awesome covers of songs such as Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass," Lil Wayne's "6 Foot 7 Foot" and Chris Brown's "Look At Me Now"? Fast forward to today: The group's since been signed to Epic Records, and they just released their debut single, "Crash Your Party," on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" earlier this morning. That's, like, faster than when an "American Idol" winner's debut single hits radio. Instant gratification much?
Egomaniacs and wannabe socialites beware: Amy and Nick are on a mission to completely knock you off your pedestal with "Crash Your Party." Sampling the 1991 Black Sheep hip-hop hit "The Choice Is Yours," Karmin's swagga-fied debut single supplies plenty of funky fresh beats and melodic vocals recalling the flavor (sorry, flava) of some of today's swagga-pop stars, including Jessie J and Cher Lloyd.
Oh, and for those of you who swooned hard for Amy's breakneck rap skills, fear not: She's supplied a mile-a-minute tongue-twister during the song's bridge that'll have your eyes crossing in 10 seconds flat. "Sittin' on the top of the world, you got the best view/Livin' life with a cheat sheet, nobody test you, huh?" Amy sneers. Seriously, y'all... she means it.
+ Listen to Karmin, "Crash Your Party."
