Havana Brown, I Really Don't Get It
I've spent the past couple of hours trying to make sense of the new Havana Brown single. And I still have no idea what's going on. "Get It" sounds like "Firestarter" mixed with every dodgy house record released in 1997 - finished off with a sprinkling of the superstar DJ's trademark reed-thin vocals. Who threw this mess together? D:Ream? It's so disappointing given the double platinum success of her stunning Cascada knock-off "We Run The Night". That gem established Havana as the nation's hottest dance diva. A niche she could have made her own with a smart follow-up. Instead, she shat out this noise. Don't get me wrong. I'm sure clubbers will love "Get It" - after their third vial of G - but the crossover appeal of her debut is completely MIA. Fingers crossed the video is hot or the busty beauty's pop career could be over before it started. Someone please drag Dannii out of retirement. Australian nightclubs need her now more than ever!
