Adam Lambert Week – September 2-8, 2012
….And we have homework!
When that time comes, Request, Request Request!!
HERE’S A SAMPLING OF WHAT REVIEWERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE SONG TRESPASSING
Billboard: “Trespassing – A startling, stomping, altogether tremendous opening, in which Lambert snarls “Wait ’til you get a load of me” while strutting over a Pharrell Williams beat that Michael Jackson would have loved.” Read more at http://www.billboard.com/new-releases/adam-lambert-trespassing-track-by-track-1007060962.story#63WkH8S9Cz8VWocQ.99
USA Today Idol Chatter: “Trespassing (Pharrell Wiliams, Adam Lambert). Adam’s album kicks off like a drill-team version of Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust. It also establishes a recurring outsider theme, as Adam swaggers undaunted past a “No Trespassing” sign, singing “Life’s my life and liberty, and I’ll shine when I want to shine.” Here, and throughout the album, Adam embraces his “other-than” status. For an artist (and an audience) that prides itself on pushing boundaries, this song’s an audacious opening volley.”
Hollywood Reporter: “A classic (winning) combination of foot stomps and hand claps kick off the album’s Pharrell Williams-produced opening track. With a Studio 54-esque bass line reminiscent of “Don’t Stop ‘Till You Get Enough,” it seems maestro N.E.R.D. is once again up to his old high school marching band-meets-Michael Jackson tricks. Let’s go!
Yahoo Music (Lyndsay Parker): ”Side A” of Trespassing kicks off with a true statement of intent, the Pharrell Williams-co-penned title track, in which Adam boldly announces, “Wait till ya get a load of me.” (He ain’t kiddin’.) Adam’s recent reunion with his old “Idol” duet partners Queen is an obvious touchstone here, with “Trespassing’s” bowel-rumbling disco bassline, canned handclaps, and gang-chanty intro bringing to mind Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust” and “We Will Rock You”–but other supercool drill-team staples come to mind, like Toni Basil’s “Mickey,” Frankie Smith’s “Double Dutch Bus,” Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation,” and even the Go! Team, the Ting Tings, and Sleigh Bells. And there’s a heavy-breathing breakdown in the middle that features some of the sexiest panting since Donna Summer’s “Love To Love You Baby,” or at least since Madonna’s “Burning Up,” Kinky’s “Más,” or the Faint’s “Posed To Death.” And that’s just THE FIRST TRACK.

The Neptunes.org Adam Lambert Announces New Single Trespassing ”Adam Lambert has just announced that the title track off his album Trespassing is the next single to be released to radio. He shared the news with his more than 1.6 million Twitter followers when he tweeted: “My next radio single is TRESPASSING written by @Pharrell and myself. ‘make their faces crack, there’s no turning back.’” Co-written by Adam and Pharrell Williams, the track is a hand clapping, foot stomping inducing anthem, unlike most songs on the radio today. Adam stepped outside the box when he wrote this tune, which is reminiscent of Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust.” Although Adam has stalled with the new single announcement, the cat was essentially let out of the bag when Dallas radio station 102.9 NOW tweeted last weekend…”

MTV Australia Asks The Singer His Picks For ‘Video Of The Year’ ”He has a stack of hit singles and eye catching videos to his name, so we thought glam-pop singer Adam Lambert would be the perfect artist to ask for his picks at this year’s ‘2012 MTV Video Music Awards’! Although Adam shied away from predicting an actual winner for the ‘Video of the Year’ category, he did admit that he loves Bajan beauty Rihanna’s “different” clip for ‘We Found Love’!”

CarterMatt - ‘American Idol’ season 12: Why Adam Lambert should be the final judge “He’s sort of fallen off the rumor mill since being one of the first people to join it earlier this summer … but yet, he may be the right person still for the job. Why? It’s really a combination of a number of factors.” Read on for one of our favorite reality television commentators’ appraisal.
EW.com -’American Idol’ judges update: Who’s in, who’s out ”…The third spot, sources say, is most likely going to Australian country music star Keith Urban.The top runner-up for his spot (or, if Fox and producers decide to go full throttle, for a fourth spot) is Spanish singer-songerwriter Enrique Iglesias. And, hanging in there with an outside chance, Idol veteran Adam Lambert is still in the mix.”
