Good af dear readers and welcome to yet another Alarm Pop. As it’s bank holiday Monday (and, frankly, we find them a little bit boring), we have decided to give you not one, but two doses of your daily new pop fix – how generous are we?
Today’s second Alarm Pop comes from those very talented American teenagers Becky G and Austin Mahone (who we cover a lot, we think you’ll find), and their collaboration for The Smurfs 2 soundtrack, a track named ‘Magik 2.0’.
The song samples B.o.B. and Rivers Cuomo’s 2010 hit ‘Magic’ – hence the inclusion of ‘2.0’ in the title.
The track is very fun and pop, successfully fitting in with the theme of the kids’ film that is was created for. Becky G dominates the song with her effortless rapping skills whilst Austin really brings the song together with his guest vocals on the chorus.
The song must be good, because we’re all rushing out to see The Smurfs 2 later, has it convinced you to go and buy tickets?
