It is actually happening! Danity Kane (Aubrey O’Day, Aundrea Fimbres, Shannon Bex and Dawn Richard) has just premiered a brand new track titled “Bye Baby.” According to Rap-Up, who premiered the new song, the girls have been working on material for a new studio album with Stereotypes, Da Internz, The Underdogs, Ester Dean, James Fauntleroy, and Rob Knox.
On first listen, “Bye Baby” might feel like just another pop song, but after a few listens, it manages to embed itself in your head permanently. Thankfully bypassing any gimmicks or current pop music trends, “Bye Baby” is charmingly flavored with an infectious beat, catchy hook, clap section, and sing-along-friendly melody.
“Since I can afford more, I don’t have to settle for you. Don’t cry baby,” they sing before launching head first into the memorable chorus. I don’t think Danity Kane has ever sounded more confident and alive on record, and the production work is fresh and original. I’m sure I’ll get tired of “Bye Baby” eventually, but it’s enjoyable enough to have me reaching for repeat over and over, and that’s a compliment that precious few songs seem to warrant lately.
Danity Kane released their last studio album, Welcome to the Dollhouse, in 2008. The LP became the group’s second consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
