Hold My Hand-Jess Glynne

Although British pop sensation Jess Glynne’s album “I Cry When I Laugh” is ranked No. 7, only one behind Taylor Swift’s “1989,”┬áthe song “Hold My Hand” was my first introduction to her music. She sang it on “Late Night With Trevor Noah” the other night, and I immediately knew if would be a great dance song for my band.

The song’s form is sort of unusual; a stylistic hybrid. The verses sound almost “country-ish,” while the choruses (with the help of a strong dance drum beat) are pure “pop-dance.”

As for whether “Hold My Hand,” or for that matter, Ms. Glynne, has any real staying power, only time will tell. But for now, I just can’t wait to try it out in one of our new dance sets. I’ll keep you posted!

Let me know what you think.
