Instant cover version from @iamChrisJamison: “Want To Want Me”

CHRIS JAMISON, “Want To Want Me”

I’m quickly coming to the conclusion that Pittsburgh’s Chris Jamison, who finished third in Season 7 of “The Voice”, has one of the best new voices around, and just needs the right original song to click that will send him into the charts.  Of course his first original, “Velvet”, is currently #2 on my personal chart and reached #53 on the Billboard Hot 100.  “Want To Want Me” is a great immediate cover choice.  Whereas Jason Derulo’s out-of-the-box-smash original (below) highlight’s that singer’s vocal range that was recently lost on fun stuff like “Talk Dirty” and “Wiggle” but what impressed us all six years ago with his debut songs like “Whatcha Say” and “In My Head”.  Chris smooths the song out to the aural equivalent of buttery silk.  He also easily matches Jason’s vocal range.   My only critique is about the video for “Want To Want Me”, which I feel  is poorly shot and, sorry, it’s not befitting of the singer’s talents.  “Want To Want Me” is a great song to showcase Chris and should be a lead up to whatever fine original songs he decides to record – I for one am looking forward to them 🙂
