Is it just me or does the Black Eyed Peas new single "Boom Boom Pow" remind anyone of that hit single "Supernova Girl" from the Disney Channel Original Movie: "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century."
The catchy dance beat is worthy of listening while driving, no need to tune in and out of other stations to hear more Top 40 dribble. "Boom Boom Pow" falls short of all expectations anyone had about the Black Eyed Peas and their ability to maintain a strong output of pop singles because it sounds like a late 90's dance pop track. There's nothing special about it.
"I'm so 3008! You're so 2000 and late," really Will.i.am? What does that even mean?
It's not that Protozoa, lead singer for the fictitious pop-rock group Microbe in the 1999 Disney Channel movie Zenon, sang his track any better than the members of Black Eyed Peas. Imagine the Jonas Brothers singing, "Interplanetary, Megastellar, Hydrostatic / There's no gravity between us / Our love is automatic!" It'd be weird. Cutsey, unrealistic lyrics may have worked in a Disney Channel original movie but besides that, I think it can be agreed upon that Microbe was not a good band, which makes "Supernova Girl" a bad song. And -- if "Boom Boom Pow" sounds a whole hell of a lot like Supernova Girl ... well, you see where I'm going with this.
