Lily Allen burst onto the pop scene in 2006 with her smashing debut CD, "Alright, Still." Her style was unlike anything else, and she scored a couple of top 10 hits in the UK, including the #1 "Smile." Her music was cheeky fun, and I wondered what her new music would sound like. Frankly, her first CD was so original that I thought that any new music would sound derivative or conversely would sound too different. Fortunately, she's found a nice balance on "The Fear," her first single from her second CD.

"The Fear" wisely is more electropop than her other songs, which is certainly popular nowadays (see Katy Perry, "Circus" by Britney, Lady Gaga, "Disturbia" by Rihanna). The song pokes fun at pop stars and how they get famous, starting with the audacious opening lyrics: I want to be rich and I want lots of money/ I don't care about clever I don't care about funny/ I want loads of clothes and f***loads of diamonds/ I heard people die while they are trying to find them. I could definitely imagine the song being a massive UK hit. Will it get played on US radio? That's much harder to say, as her last CD received relatively little airplay here. "The Fear" is probably more overtly commercial sounding than her prior work; however, it doesn't have a strong chorus that makes it sound like an obvious hit. I hope I'm wrong, and I'll enjoy this single either way. Can't wait for her forthcoming CD, "It's Not Me, It's You."
