If you’re not already familiar with the musical stylings of Ms. Kimberly Cole, prepare to be schooled.
The former artistic roller skating champion (no, really–here’s the proof), former opener for acts including Katy Perry and LMFAO and one-fourth of soon-to-be pop group, Kimberlegend first struck it big last year with the release of “Smack You,” a feisty, bitchy electro-pop punch that found the California-born chanteuse talking trash and throwing ‘bows with some of the meanest hoes around. The full-on ‘tude track soon led to an official partnership with the Oxygen Network’s all-female, all-drama answer to Jersey Shore: The Bad Girls Club.
“Smack You” wound up traveling well beyond the Bad Girls Club promo commercials cycling on the Oxygen channel, eventually climbing to an impressive #4 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play Charts last summer.
Following her lead single’s success, Cole then went on to release her debut record (and Oxygen Network’s first ever co-branded album) in December of 2010: Bad Girls Club, a sassy filth-fest of deliciously trashy, brazen electro-pop cuts about three-ways and vibrators. You know…only the finest things in life!
Now, the singer has taken a quick breather from smacking up bitches to jump into the studio with House DJ/producer Eddie Amador in order to cook up a brand new cut for 2011.
Click above to listen to an Excluusive 1-minute extended preview of Kimberly Cole’s new single, “Arrow Through My Heart,” which will be released in August 2.
The track finds Cole playing the temptress atop a searing, dub-laden dance floor throb. But don’t try and impress her with your money, ’cause she don’t want your dollar bills: “Give me something I can feel,” Cole cries out. “Push your arrow through my heart!” Bulls-eye!
After the release of “Arrow Through My Heart,” Cole will ring in a newly inked deal with Big Beat/Atlantic Records (home of MuuMuse fave Wynter Gordon!) with the release of her first major label single later this year.
“Arrow Through My Heart” will be released on August 2. (iTunes)
