Becky G – Shower

Some songs are such slow burners that it takes months before they begin to gain traction and mainstream attention. Initially released way back in April, Becky G’s sleeper hit “Shower” is now gaining some well deserved radio and download love. I came across this song while I was stuck in bed for the past 3 weeks and liked it straight away. From the opening orchestral notes which brought me back to Vitamin C’s classic “Graduation (Friend Forever)” to its cutesy/quirky lyrics about young love to Becky G’s delivery over the hip-hop/pop production, I was hooked and wondered why radio has not picked this song up earlier. Some listeners may say that “Shower” is cheesy, especially with its uberly used up 4th of July reference. To me… this song evokes a sense of youthful fun – careless, carefree and innocent. Excuse me while I take a moment to reminisce of my sweet 16. #download

“You light me up inside
Like the 4th of July
Whenever you’re around
I always seem to smile
And people ask me how
Well you’re the reason why
I’m dancing in the mirror and singing in the shower
La La Di, La La Da, La La Da”

Did I mention I love, love, love the Spanglish version!
