Biography

When Mike Posner was in tenth grade, an advanced placement course in American History changed his life. “We read about all these different people who had made an impact on U.S. history and I started to feel terrified that I’d never be remembered after I left this earth,” Posner says. “That’s the scariest thing in the world to me. Music is a way I can make my mark. ... Read more in Amazon's Mike Posner Store

Editorial Reviews

Southfield, Michigan-bred Mike Posner, 22, is not only a recent Duke University graduate but also an incredible producer/singer/songwriter. He has already built a rabid following by tirelessly touring including dates on the Warped Tour. Mike calls his sound guiltless pop music and features the work of producer Benny Blanco (Britney Spears, Ke$ha). The first single from 31 Minutes To Takeoff, Cooler Than Me, has exploded at radio and is dominating the charts.

Customer Reviews

I feel that his "true" fans are complaining way to much about this new album.
BJay
Better than most R&B albums over the past few years with "Cooler than Me" not even in the running for top billing.
Audiophile
I truly enjoy and respect Posner's voice as I think it is unique and works extremely well.

I'm not a new Mike Posner fan. I've been a fan of his before his mixtapes came out. I feel that his "true" fans are complaining way to much about this new album. "31 Minutes to Takeoff," for me, was a little bit shocking. I expected this album to have more up-tempo songs on it, but, was a thoroughly disappointed? No.
This album is a really good Pop/R&B album. Songs, especially like "Bow Chicka Wow Wow," "Please Don't Go," "Synthesizer," "Save Your Goodbye," and "Delta 1406," definitely show off how much of a creative genius Mike is.
Also, I love his voice. It's so distinct and different.
Mike is awesome!

Mike Posner has been around the mixtape circuit for a while now. He's one of those artists that will become familiar to you by his distinct voice. It's surprising he hasn't been featured on many official albums rather than simply mixtapes, yet I am sure he will become a normal staple in the hip-hop world soon - landing on official singles for some of the new artists (Big Sean, Kid Cudi, etc.) As a featured artist, Mike Posner is above average. He brings a lot to a hook and a bridge, however, when taking the entire spotlight? He falls a bit flat.

3/5 - "31 Minutes to Take Off" - This track is just an intro, but a lyrically it will display the direction Posner takes on his official debut. He's out for revenge - taking on his critics and naysayers of the past.

4/5 - "Please Don't Go" - The second track on the album brings a bit of energy to the album. To say that Mike Posner is an R&B artist is maybe stretching it a bit. This track proves that he does have R&B flavor though, but has a lot of hip-hop influence intertwined with the said flavor. This seems to be a track that is single material. It's catchy, ubeat and has a beat which is enjoyable to listen to. The last bit of the song, Posner experiments a bit with the beat, which seems to bring a bit of a fresh flavor to the (potential) radio hit.

2/5 - "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" - Now, by hearing the title of this track I immediately figured it would be an interlude of comic standard. However, it is an actual song directed toward the ladies. It's Posner's attempt at swooing a girl. With lyrics touching on "no more waiting." The chorus is weak and the lyrics are even more frail. It's a song that has no appeal for males and even females, I would have to believe, would skip to the next song.

Granted I dont know any of Mike's old stuff, so this is my first cd. I have to say I have listened to it from start to finish several times and like it even more and more. I find it to be a great fussion of R&B and Pop. I think the beats are popping, the smooth lyrical licks yeah maybe overly synthesized but fresh. From 'Please Don't Go' to 'Delta 1406' I enjoyed the over all sexy cool vibe. I love the funky soulful explosion of 'Do U Wanna.' And...even the haters have to admit 'Deja Vu' def was a refreshing up take of an acapella performance. If you like his smash hit 'Cooler Then Me', you should really be feeling this album. If you dig this cd also check out Taio CruzRokstarr and Jason DeruloJason Derulo both solid albums

Mike Posner could quite possibly be the most brilliant pop artist to come out since Lady Gaga - & he deserves to be just as huge. While often pinned as a hip hop artist, Posner is anything but. Firmly placed in electronic music, often using live instruments, Posner is that rare eclectic artist that is able to fuse genres together seamlessly - but he never once raps. His voice is as unique as his sound. Vocally, it could be said he's rougher version of Justin Timberlake, minus the vocal tricks. Musically, he bounces from electronic dance to a thumping club track to a fully live band and back again. Posner's lyrical abilities are nothing short of amazing. Clever, introspective and raw, he never holds back from what he wants to say. After signing with J Records while enrolled at Duke University, Posner began recording the album while finishing out his double major. From those recordings comes his major label debut "31 Minutes To Takeoff". The albums is one of the most instantly addicting albums I've heard in quite some time. It's easy to over look the catchy songs and driving beats and not see the depth that's contained within the lyrics of these twelve tracks - but do yourself a favor and listen. It only takes one to truly listen to the lyrics to see the talent that this new artist possesses. This is one album you don't want to miss. And this is one artist that deserves to be huge.

1. 31 Minutes To Takeoff - A short intro. "Do you recall I told you, this was just a matter of time?" This is the very first line of the first song on his first major release. This intro song gives a clear indication of what type of journey this record will take us on.

2. Please Don't Go - A very low-key dance club song, "Please Don't Go" is someone pleading to their lover to stay.

I actually like the album. He doesn't have the best voice, but the songs are pretty good. I'm gonna buy it.
