Conor Maynard - 'Contrast' First Listen!
EXCLUSIVE | See what MTV.co.uk thought about Conor's debut LP here..
Conor Maynard may have been given the title of the UK's answer to Justin Bieber, but the Brighton-born singer is out to prove himself as an artist in his own right with debut album,Ne-Yo which shows off the R&B flare in Maynard's vocals - fitting perfectly with the silky tones of the Pharrell Williamson Justin Timberlake record, as Pharrell's trademark beats take us back to JT's iconic LP, Frank Ocean penned [uuid=699c8621-8e58-4754-a38d-7296e16a0934]Rita Oraon this attitude-riddled anthem, which Conor co-wrote.
The song shows off a more mature side to Maynard, as he exchanges heated lyrics with Ora, with the pair cheekily name-checking each other towards the end of the uptempo tune. A sure fire hit, and we hope it's a single.
Michael Jackson. With a poptastic collection of tunes and help from some of his A-List pals, this debut is bound to blast the Brighton lad to superstardom.
In Conor's own words: "Rather than being the next Justin Bieber, I’m the first Conor Maynard" - we couldn't have said it better ourselves!
MTV.co.uk verdict: 7/10
Contrast is out now.
