Mike Posner - Cooler Than Me

Ok, so he looks like the lovechild of Justin Timberlake and Plan B, and he's clearly not much of a singer.  But this track is all about the production.  Electro-pop that throws in a heavy bass, the production is contemporary and well suited to the radio and the dance floor.

The main problem with this song though is its lack of a typical verse-chorus structure.  Kudos for doing something different, but as a result this track is missing that much needed killer hook or sing-along chorus.  It's a shame the synth melody at the end doesn't come in sooner.  It's still, however, a very cool pop record that deserves success and a download.
