Where has SexyGone? We all know that Justin Timberlake brought “SexyBack” in 2006, but since he seems more interested in acting than recording music these days, he’s left a sizable gap in the music scene. However, recent college graduate Mike Posner seems ready, willing and able to fill Mr. Timberlake’s place at the pop music table while Justin is busy schmoozing Oscar voters.
After gathering some steam on the underground mixtape circuit over the last year and change, Posner broke out big time as a solo artist this summer with his smash hit diss track, “Cooler Than Me.” Now he’s back with the second single off 31 Seconds To Takeoff, “Please Don’t Go.”
Whereas “Cooler Than Me” struck a chord with its fiery take on the inflated egos of some of his Duke University brethren, “Please Don’t Go” shows the softer, sweeter side of Posner. Will this be as big of a hit for him as “Cooler Than Me”? Well, given the success that Bruno Mars is experiencing these days, there’s a good chance that it could. Regardless, the choice is up to you, the music consuming public! To find out how it’s doing, be sure to tune into VH1’s Top 20 Video Countdown each and every weekend!
