Ellen, So Random, and many other TV shows, and
being voted one of Us Weekly’s 100 Cutest Guys, Cody Simpson has set himself up with quite the list of impressive
achievements. Now that he’s done touring with Big Time Rush, he’s prepping for
a few upcoming shows with Justin Bieber on his “Believe Tour.” But that’s not
all. Cody is set to have his own full-scale North American tour in February
2013, and we just can’t wait!
having performed on
were lucky enough to get our hands on a copy of Cody’s new album Paradise,
set to release this Tuesday, Oct. 2.
Read on to get a sneak peek at the Aussie cutie’s new CD...
album’s first and title track “Paradise” introduces the sound of the album
really well, with fun and laid-back lyrics. The song puts us in a great mood,
with a beat that you can’t help but drum along to. We already love what we
hear, and it’s only the first song!
also really like “Got Me Good,” which is super cute and catchy. Cody croons
sweetly to a lucky chica about how much he loves her, kindly telling her, “Even
when you wake up without any makeup, I’m in love.” We love how he adores her au
natural, the way every guy should feel about his girl!
U Were Here” (ft. Becky G) is more synthesized than most of the other tracks on Paradise, making it a definite song to
dance to with your friends. But Cody stays true to his romantic side, saying
things like, “Living without you is a no-no,” and “bright lights…can’t compare
to the light from you.” Becky G comes in with a funky rap, quipping right back
to Cody, “It’s been too long since I’ve looked into your eyes.” Aww!
Love Girls” is also a fun tune. The song is about just that—how much Cody
Simpson loves girls. Maybe it’s because we’re girls, but we couldn’t help but
swoon while listening to this track. So far, Cody is staying solid throughout
the album, and this song makes us want to get out on the dance floor!
last track, “Gentleman,” is a slightly slower ballad-type track about
comforting the girl he loves. The beat is provided by a beautiful-sounding
acoustic guitar…perhaps it’s Cody playing? It feels as if we could be at a
beach bonfire listening to this catchy jam, loaded with lyrics like, “Can I be
your gentleman?” Um, sure you can, Cody!
Paradise has got a
little bit of everything. Cody perfectly infuses his laid-back Australian
outlook on life into every song. And he takes the opportunity to experiment
with different sounds and instruments, which only adds to the true versatility
of his talent. From guitar, to heavy pop beats, Cody’s voice shines like a
beacon over any background to capture our attention.
