What's the story?
"ADVICE" is the debut major-label single from up and coming singer Christina Grimmie, another young artist who rose to fame by posting her performances to YouTube. In this track, Grimmie follows the straight and narrow path of her famous mentor and tour partner, Selena Gomez, singing clean lyrics about having a positive outlook on life: "Don't let go the good times, and let the bad times know you feel fine / And wear your heart out on your sleeve, love is all you need."
Is it any good?
Christina Grimmie has an extra strong voice that shines through more clearly in her home video performances than in this super-produced track. Though her pipes are somewhat overshadowed by the big synth-pop hook of this song, it's still a catchy tune that will appeal to tweens and teens who are into the modern pop sound.
