Katharine McPhee Releases Summertime Smash

It suddenly sounds like 1983 again, and Shalamar is still at the top of the charts.

Katharine McPhee is finally back with the eighties disco/funk-tinged track, Lick My Lips. She's been largely missing from the pop music scene since her debut album, thanks to her several leading television roles and films. 

It's not often that I find a song that I am digging this much. The opening beat of Lick My Lips is slightly reminiscent of Aretha Franklin's Every Girl (Wants My Guy). That funky bass line is the perfect retro throwback yet still sounds so fresh.

What do you think of the new single? Do you think this is going to be a summertime smash?
