David Archuleta Debuts New Song “Crush” – Pure Pop Sound

Archuleta who came in as the second “David” in last season’s American Idol competition released his first original single “Crush.”   The song showcases Archuleta’s signature range and pure pitch that works well in this pop song.  He is an artist that certainly can pull it off.  The lyrics are certain to appeal to his tween fan base but there is a certain “old soulness” to Archuleta’s voice that belies his 17 years old age.

It will be interesting to watch the career of this young man.  I believe that it is set to be on a even more sharper and higher rise than American Idol Cook.   There is a longevity promise to Archuleta if he manages his career right.  As this new song, Crush proves, he can take a simple tune and make it magic.

  1. Archie hit it outta the park!!!!! Believe me when I say there were tons of us Archies up all night on this past Thursday – in chatrooms blazing across the US , from Guam, Singapore, Japan, Canada, the Phillipines, India in nervous anticipation of this debut – and we all feel Jive has done our “Crown Prince” proud…. this is the beauty of him being 17 years old – the tiger is yet to be fully unleashed, and this debut goes a LONG way in silencing the critics and detractors who wrote him of as being unable to appeal to a “mainstream” pop audience…. BRAVO DAVID….

  2. Your review was spot on. I especially agree about the part on Archuleta’s “old soulfulness”. Only he – with that God given voice – can make a pop song like that appealing to older fans like me. Love him!

  3. THIS SONG IS ABSOULUTLY AMAZINGGG!!!
    DAVID ARCHULETA IS SUCH AN AMAZINGGG ARTIST AS WELL AS PERSON, I KNOW HE IS GOING TO BE HUGE, AS WILL THIS SONG ONCE IT IS RELEASED! CAN’T WAIT TO BUY HIS ALBUM!

  4. David has delivered an amazing first single to his fans, and the public. It is rhythmic, David’s superior vocals soar and are identifiable throughout, has a catchy beat.. Hey-> I watched lotsa American Bandstand back in the day
    His older fans like me find themselves humming along unconsciously, and the verses transport the listener back to those bygone days of school girl and schoolboy CRUSHES… It has an appeal across a very broad spectrum of listeners, and should effectively silence the detractors and critics who didn’t believe he had mainstream appeal. CRUSH is the catapult for David to continue his growth and evolution as an artist – I ANTICIPATE MANY MANY YEARS OF OUTSTANDING MUSIC FROM HIM. TAKE A BOW DAVID… YOU’VE ARRIVED.
