Amy Alida – Pretty Bad
Wisconsin singer/songwriter Amy Alida is bringing us a great R&B track with “Pretty Bad.” With a hot beat and spot-on vocals, Alida is giving the current R&B princesses ruling the charts a run for their money. “Pretty Bad” is a pretty good song that sticks in your head long after its over.
This song has a catchy backing beat with Pop and Hip Hop elements to it. Alida’s vocals are good also—her tone of voice sounds very similar to Rihanna’s. I can easily imagine this song playing on the radio and doing well on the charts. The only slight criticisms I can give the song is that it goes on a bit too long—shortening it may help to reduce it sounding repetitive towards the end. And also, the track does sound a lot like other female R&B artists’ songs that are popular right now. But I do have to say that Alida does hold her own against the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna—her vocals are just as good as theirs!
“Pretty Bad” is a catchy song with a beat that gets your head bobbing and vocals that are easily memorable. Although the song doesn’t really bring anything new to the table—sounding similar to tons of other songs on the radio—it still stays in your head and Alida is just as talented as other female R&B artists out there. Alida seems well on her way to a successful career!
