Check out the premiere of Rachel Crow‘s first single “Mean Girls“! The track will be featured on her forthcoming debut self-titled EP available digitally on June 26. For those of you who may not know her, Rachel participated in the first season of the U.S. X Factor and finished in fifth place overall. After her dramatic elimination Rachel quickly landed a Nickelodeon TV deal and Columbia Records contract. “Mean Girls” is exactly what I expected from the young rising star. It’s an age-appropriate single with a positive message that fits perfectly for her voice. Written and produced by Toby Gad, the song carries strong similarities to his work with Beyoncé (If I Were A Boy) and Fergie (Big Girls Don’t Cry). If promoted correctly, Rachel has got a hit on her hands. What do you guys think?
