Austin Mahone is an American Pop singer who developed a large online following in 2011 with the viral videos he posted to YouTube with his best friend Alex Constancio. When Mahone debuted in September 2011 at #38 on the Billboard Social 50 chart, he became the youngest artist to appear on the list. This is the second single from his debut album, Junior Year. The Pop track reached the top five on the iTunes single charts the day of its release, helped by a Today show appearance and an iTunes 69 cent sale
Mahone explained the track's meaning on Live from MTV: "The song is about me being in this relationship with a girl and something happened along the way," he said. "It's like, 'What about all our promises? What about everything we did? I guess it doesn't matter anymore.'" Mahone added that he wasn't drawing from any personal experiences regarding the lyrics. "I wouldn't say it's about a personal love," he said. "I think it's a song a lot of people can relate to."
The RedOne-produced single combines sounds of the '90s boy-band era, with a more contemporary EDM vibe. "I wanted to have old school and a little new school in there with the Electronic-Dance music," Mahone said. "And the Backstreet Boys, it's kind of bringing it together a little bit."
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
