She’s written several smash hits including “Hold It Against Me” (Britney Spears), “Dynamite” (Taio Cruz) and several for Katy Perry such as “California Gurls,” “Wide Awake” and my favorite, “Teenage Dream.” Somehow though, Bonnie McKee hasn’t been able to pen one for herself. Her best offering to date, “American Girl,” stalled at No. 87 in 2013. Maybe, her luck will change with her upcoming EP.
“Bombastic” is one of four tracks included on her EP. The 31-year-old artist co-wrote it with Sean Walsh, Andreas Axident and rising singer Charlie Puth. It’s not the usual bubbly pop fare she releases. Instead, it’s a bit edgier with almost a metal influence.
For the accompanying visual, she heads to the 80s for inspiration. Channeling Olivia Newton-John circa “Physical” era, McKee goes aerobic but with a raunchier twist. Check out the David Richardson-directed music video below.
