Okay, let’s be real for a second. Other than his 2010 Bruno Mars-assisted hit “Billionaire,” the only consistent success Travie McCoy has ever enjoyed has been with his band Gym Class Heroes, who actually have some proper bops (“Ass Back Home,” “Stereo Hearts,” etc). Alone not so much. His 2013 single with Jason Mraz “Rough Water” barely made an impact and last year’s “Keep On Keeping On” featuring Brendon Urie fared even worse (no1curred).
So what do you do when your career is hanging on by a thread? You call the woman who can do no wrong. You call Sia! And that’s exactly what Travie has done with his brand new single “Golden.” The track, produced by Diplo and The Picard Brothers, is a positive and upbeat pop number driven by a smooth gliding beat and a soaring hook provided by Miss Australia herself. “Don’t fear, baby, cause you and me are golden/ When you can’t breathe, it’s you that I’ll be holdin’/ Yes, I’m all in, through thick and thin/ This is good loving, you and me are golden,” Sia sings. It plays out like most of his songs do but Sia really adds her magic touch to it. If “Golden” is a hit, you already know why. Besos <3
