I love Blake Lewis.

You know… Blake?  From American Idol.  Last season’s 1st runner-up and ready to accept the AmIdol crown and duties in case the winner (Jordin Sparks) gets too fat to perform.

Here’s a picture of Blake being kinda sexy:

Mmmm, inky.  Yeah.  I’d do him.

Well, his debut album finally dropped (no, not the piece of shit ‘songs from Idol’ thing- his ORIGINAL album) and I have to say I’m absolutely loving it.  Yessir.

LOVE.

ING.

IT.

Except for the cover art.  Here’s a pic of it:

Coulda maybe used a bit more airbrushing.  Um, perhaps I wouldn’t do him now.

Ok.  I’d do him for the music– which honestly rocks.  I completely found myself bopping my head to it and jamming along with him while driving home from my band concert yesterday.   Many of his songs have great hooks and just make you wanna dance around your living room.

Or at least they make me want to.

This is the American Idol contenstant album I’ve been waiting for since Kelly Clarkson.  Finally something that’s fresh (relatively) and plays well to today’s pop audience.  And not R&B or Country for fuck’s sake.

Its like a Justin Timberlake/Robin Thicke martini (with just a dash of Vanilla Ice)– shaken AND stirred!

The album is completely him:  funk, soul, electronic, beatbox, rap, and hip-hop but with an 80’s vibe.  He uses heavy beats, break beats, 70’s funk beats… you name it.  And there is one song (track 11?) that I SWEAR sounds like Prince wrote, produced, performed, and then farmed it out to him.  I can’t wait to play it for Kyle– because it IS so very Princetastic.

And I’m talking the good Prince too… the funky, keyboardy, vocoder, late 80s early 90s Prince.  Not the bad, “I’m a Jehovas Witness now” Prince. 

To all you ‘Nillas out there, I highly recommend checking it out.

    You lost me with the comparison to Justin Timberlake, who just makes me want to ram rusty nails into my ears.

    Okay, that album cover? WTF? It looks like Blake Lewis: A Space Odyssey or some shit. Totally NOT making me want to listen. As did your Robin Thicke comparison, but because you’re so damn cute and I trust your judgement, I may just throw caution to the wind and give it a listen.

    And have you heard Jordin (what’s with that spelling?) Sparks first single, TATTOO? Mother of God…I wanted to rip my ears off.

    Yeah, the album cover sucks mightily.

    Wow, Prince is a JW?
    I thought he was still just some symbol.

    WTF? That cover is insane. Dirk is right, though it’s more like late 1990s SciFi cover art. Photoshop in the wrong hands is a lethal weapon. Having said that though, I’d heard a few comments saying the music is fun, so I’ll try giving it a whirl. Never watched American Idol much so I’ll take it he’s a good singer.

    Thanks for the recommendation! Like you, I find Blake Lewis to be yummy too. Although I find his ink level to be a tad high for my personal taste, I think he’s cuter than cute! There’s something about his small mouth that’s sexy. And I was lovin’ that wild faux hawk with the blonde highlights. But seriously, what happened in the last 3-4 episodes where his hair looked black with a big silver streak in it? I was like “WTF?”

    Blake was truly an ‘original’ and I’m sorry he didn’t win. But I’m gonna get his new record on your recommendation and am sure I’ll dig it.

    Mark 🙂

    He’s terrible. One of the worst Idol runners-up ever, right next to Clay Gayken and Justin Guarini! How Blake outlasted Melinda Doolittle, the second best Idol contestant ever (next to Jennifer Hudson) is a travesty! It’s because people voted for Blake since they thought he was cute. Looks trumped talent. As for the Timberlake/Thicke comparison: bullseye. They are all awful singers that are trying to be black. JT owes his career to Timbaland. If Timbaland hadn’t taken him under his wing, JT would be in the dumpster where he belongs.

    Love Him, love him, love him!

    Jordin’s probably squiireled away in some San Fernando hideaway scarfing down burritos. His talent is undeniable.

    LOVE your page, by the way!
