Mike Posner Drops His New Single, “She Looks Like Sex”
Detroit native Mike Posner’s sophomore LP won’t be released until early 2012, but the R&B phenom apparently couldn’t wait that long for his fans to hear “She Looks Like Sex,” the first single off Sky High. He put the song up on Soundcloud earlier today, and we are really digging it. [Soundcloud via Idolator]
