Chances are that even if you don’t recognize Bonnie McKee‘s name or face, you’ve at least heard her many hit songs — everyone from Katy Perry (“California Gurls,” “Wide Awake,” “Part Of Me,” “Birthday,” etc.) to Kelly Clarkson (“Alive” and “Bad Reputation“) to Christina Aguilera (“Let There Be Love“) to the legendary Miss Britney Spears (“Hold It Against Me,” “Inside Out,” and “How I Roll“) have all called on McKee to pen smashes for them over the last seven years. And even when she decided to step out from behind-the-scenes in 2013 with the unappreciated “American Girl” and “Sleepwalker,” Bonnie was still killing it.
Time and time again, she’s proven herself to be one of the best songwriters in the game. And this week, Bonnie makes her grand return to the pop star side of things with the release of her stellar 4-track EP, Bombastic!
The collection, produced by Sean Walsh, is the very essence of pop at its finest: Strong songcraft, powerful melodies and infectious vocals, from the sexy hard-edged, electro stomper “I Want It All” to the thoroughly brilliant title track “Bombastic” to the nostalgic, 80’s synth-soaked “Wasted Youth,” which basically plays out like the sophisticated older sister to her very own “Teenage Dream.” Bonnie just gets it – WIN!
