TIME MAGAZINE: The 5 Best Songs of the Week From Camila Cabello's 'Shameless' to Adam Lambert's 'Superpower'
"...Adam Lambert shows that he’s got an infectious style well beyond his work with Queen on 'Superpower.'"
"...Lambert...is a solo artist...who excels in funk and soul grooves. “Superpower”...(has) got a gritty guitar, juicy bass and lots of funk, with an extra electric guitar riff and gospel choir bridge just to up the ante; it’s born for the dance floor.  Turns out, Lambert’s superpower may just be putting on a stylish show across genres."

Wow.....Very exciting reviews! NOW we're talking! Adam's "Superpower" is proving to be irresistable. And why not? Superpower" is absolutely fantastic...a real groundbreaker! I hope it's on the radio...everywhere....all the time! It's SO addictive!

People are beginnimng to finally realize how unique Adam is....besides his extraordinary voice.

Dee R Gee said...

Really great reviews! It's been so long since his last album, I'm sure some people kind of forgot about him. But he is back with a vengeance with some fantastic music! LOVE SUPERPOWER!

broddybounce said...

The song is a definite earworm -- I think the most delicious earworm single since WWFM -- and it occurs in not just one but several different parts of the song -- and that's gonna be GREAT for radio play! (He's had MANY other songs that were earworms but unfortunately didn't make it to singles, y' know?)

My favorite earworm is in the second half of the song (written phonetically):

My Supa-powa ... OOOOH!
My Supa-powa ... OOOOH!
(bass line)
My Supa...oooh...POWA!"

Sunflower said...

I am ecstatic with all the incredible reviews! Everyone agrees this song "got funk"! I can't wait to see him perform this song on television and on his solo tour! He better get a Grammy for Superpower!

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

Well .. I guess it's neither Nile Rogers nor Brian May on guitar on Superpower!! Rather I read it's his co-writer Tommy English .. checked it out on Google & he seems to be associated with a lot of artists .. Taylor Swift .. Lady Gaga .. Shawn Mendes .. to mention a few!! He really does a fantastic job on Superpower!!

What a beat/vibe or whatever you call it!! I'm HOOKED!!

Nanbert said...

Thanks for the info...Lambert Outlaw. Actually, I assumed the guitarist/group was the three women band he has been using with "New Eyes" and "Coming in Hot". That Tommy English is really good!

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

I agree Nanbert .. he would have to be for me to confuse him with Brian or Nile!! I just came from Ytube & Superpower is nearing the million mark .. 700+K right now but it is going up pretty fast!! I got it on a loop & I check it every 15 min. or so & refresh so it's a true count as of now!! Hope it hits 1M by midnight!!

I LOVE THIS SONG!!!

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

Time Magazine .. just type in adam lambert superpower & it's all there along with videos too!! Looks like our boy has hit the jackpot this time!! Can't wait for the whole VELVET Side A!!!

YAY!!!!!!!

Sue Smith said...

Fantastic and very true reviews!

broddybounce said...

Tess, thank you for your suggestions -- you may have missed that the very first review on this post IS indeed TIME magazine. :)

We considered what Rolling Stone and Variety and others had published but those are more overviews of the release, per se, and not actual reviews, and more or less all say the same thing, so we chose not to include those.

We'll definitely keep our eyes peeled for more -- and if y'all find any we may have missed, let us know -- and we'll update the post accordingly.

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

OK!! broddybounce .. I never really know what is or isn't news so if I find something I find interesting I just pass it along!! OUT magazine had an article out too but I forgot that one so if you think it's newsy you can follow up on that one!! BTW .. the video is 200K shy of a million views on Ytube .. I'll let you know when it hits the million mark & somebody can give the good news to ADAM!!

Was listing to a backstage concert on TV and there is a 2 man band called Jessie Ray and the Carolina Catfish. They play music that is good old rock and roll, bluesy, punk, hillbilly style. They listened to old vinyl records when they were younger, and came up with this. Jessie writes music, that he has experienced in real like. Just a word of thought, check them out. Wish Adam would read this. Does he ever come to read 24/7. That would be so great. By the way one of his songs is called Shaken feet. Toe tapping music. What do you think? Like to here.

ElEvans said...

Anybody knows how PR/music management/label should work? Big hit and as far as I can see less promotion than with 'New Eyes'. I'm not a huge fan of his
new song but let's be honest much worse songs are getting played on the radio all the time. Does he really have a good PR/management team? I have some doubts.

Sue Smith said...

Sure you wont read this and I could care less. ELEvans your not a fan at all. There will be more promotion ect.
Also a huge charity event coming up end of the month. 150 radio stations plus tv. Hopefully will be sung then. However there will be tv. There will be more promotion coming Im sure more than any of other songs. They knew this would be the bigger song. Already getting played quite a bit abroad. Some have heard it here I got to buy new radio and CD player.
ELEvan no one here is interested in your constant negativity or your stupid opinions. Because that all you ever bring here It's an Adam Lambert site not a trolling gathering. If your not a fan go to a fan site you like better so we can enjoy this one
Do not understand why you ever come here at all because all you do and one other person is gossip and leave negative comments that is not what this site is about. It's for Adam Lambert to promote him which you never have done in any way. The song is getting great reviews. If you do not like Adam and any of these songs he worked very hard on find someone you do on another site so people who love him and celebrate his new music can enjoy it.. All new songs on side A none we heard before.
I love Super Power the video and the song are amaizing! They are very addictive.
Again E dont give a hoot if you dont read my comments.



Sunflower said...

ElEvans give this song a chance, I absolutely love it! Sue is correct in that there is more promotions coming up for SUPERPOWER! We need to have faith with Adam's Public/Management team. As Sue mentioned this song really is getting great reviews! I think the video is just as fun to watch. I love seeing Adam dance in his videos ( I think of If I Had You and Never Close My Eyes). The song just came out besides.

Sue Smith said...

I would not have been that harsh on just that comment. But E just pops in and out, every here and there. Nothing but gossip and negativity ever.

Sue Smith said...

Love your comments Sunflowrr.In my opinion the song and video are amaizing. I believe no matter how great Adam song was and this one is very good E would always be negative. The nasty gossiping remarks like yesterday are hard to swallow.

Sunflower said...

I know Sue, maybe Adam isn't for her. She can follow other artists more to her liking. I'm happy following Adam! Omg! Sue I'm listening to my radio and Queen We...You is playing and the female DJ just said "You've just got to see Adam Lamberts new video" on our facebook! See Sue it's happening!!! Others are taking note of SUPERPOWER!

Sunflower said...

Sue I went to check the radio stations Facebook (Chicago) and the caption said; So flippin hot Adam Lambert new song and video! See this station loves it!!!!

ElEvans said...

What can I say? Negative comments are better than long and stupid.

ElEvans said...

I'm not against this song at all I just like 'New Eyes' better. I hope for more promotions so far I haven't heard 'superpower' on the radio:/

Sunflower said...

ElEvans... I don't see any stupid comments but the promotions ARE coming!

glitzylady said...

@ElEvans (and everyone else here :)))
Shoshonna Stone was on Twitter today and said that official promo for not on the new album Velvet Side A, as well as the new single Superpower will begin in earnest on the day of the release of Velvet, which is on September 27th. She said there will be massive amounts of promo, including TV and radio.

And the push for radio promo "Impacting Songs" for HAC i.e. "Hot Contemporary Radio" for "Superpower" will begin on October 7th.. according to info from "All Access Music Group"..

To quote Shoshanna Stone (Adam's publicist) today:

"Singles take a lot longer to build nowadays,.;) it's all thought out and everything is in line with each other I promise"

Let's all have some patience and positive thoughts.. Superpower is getting rave reviews and seems like it should be a hit on radio..

ElEvans said...

Thx. What is HAC?

glitzylady said...

@ElEvans
As I mentioned in my comment above, HAC is Hot Adult Contemporary Music

It's described this way by Westwood One: https://www.westwoodone.com/programming/formats/ac/hot-ac/

"HOT AC plays the best mix of music from the 90’s through today. The format is positioned comfortably between CHR and Adult Contemporary stations. Hot AC is music-intensive, Top 40 radio for adults, without the rap and hard rock. It features a contemporary, upbeat tempo with a relatable and entertaining DJ presentation, along with large-scale promotions."

The target demographic is primarily adults age 25 to 44, with expanded targets from 18 to 49.

Some of the Core Artists:

"CORE ARTISTS"
Taylor Swift
Maroon 5
Adele
Bruno Mars
Ariana Grande
Ed Sheeran
Pink
Shawn Mendes
Kelly Clarkson
Justin Timberlake
Katy Perry
Lady Gaga

Bottom line here: Adam's "SUPERPOWER" single will be getting some heavy "impacted" radio promo starting October 7th, according to All Access.com "Radio Industry News, New Music, Music Promotion, Radio Station Song Charts.. etc..

Here's the listing for Adam Lambert and Superpower along with his Velvet Album release..

Superpower "Impacting" October 7th - Hitting radio stations for play
Velvet Album Side A release September 27th..

Sunflower said...

Wow that's incredible! You got me more excited glitzylady! Haha Thanks Ali much for all the details. You know I read too that Adam is going to Germany in Oct. To promote VELVET side A!

Sunflower said...

I meant above "thanks so much" NOT Ali lol.

Nanbert said...

I notice Time's review above is a bit uninformed...stating that solo Adam is "known for his funk and soul"! Oh well, the rest is complimentary.

Can't wait to see how all that coming promotion will work out. I will have to wait to hear everyone's comments here, because, frankly, I will really hate wading through the "top 40" or whatever, in the hopes that I will hear Adam's song/s (which doesn't come)....or calling into the radio station to request an Adam song they never play.

Maybe this time will be different. If "Superpower" gets some good exposure, I can't see why it won't be a big hit.



glitzylady said...

@Nanbert
I reread the Time review and I do have to agree with their comment that Adam "excels in funk and soul grooves". They didn't so much say that he's known for that in particular but he sure does excel in that style of music.. :)))

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

Well ... don't know why all the negativity above .. everywhere I go on the internet .. fan sites .. Ytube reactions .. reviews .. they are all singing ADAM's praises!! No matter which country comments on Ytube .. it's positive .. of course there are the usual BS trolls on ADAM's videos but .. are you kidding me?? Superpower is hitting everyone everywhere ... they all say they can't stop singing & dancing to it!! One fan says she sings & dances to it while she is cleaning!! No worries Glamberts ... it's been a long time coming but I honestly Believe that Superpower hit the jackpot!!

BTW ... the song is just shy of 1M views on Ytube .. so keep watching every chance you get!! 928, 267 views ... won't be long .. 1M here we come!!

tess4ADAM(LAMBERT Outlaw)

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

Here's an update on Ytube views .. it's 7:55 AM ET 9/9/19 ...970,995 views .. we're almost there!! Go Glamberts!!

tess4ADAM(LAMBERT Outlaw)

Nanbert said...

Glitzylady...what I was thinking was that Adam EXCELS in ALL genres of music...THAT's his specialty.... and didn't know why TIME settled on just "funk and soul grooves"....except because of "Superpower".

In contrast, one of the other reviews said "Adam can sing the phonebook and sound amazing". That's the Adam WE know.

Not complaining... it was a great review...but just made it seem to me the TIME reviewer wasn't very familiar with Adam's voice/music.

One can't put Adam in a category/genre... That's one of his greatest talents!

Dee R Gee said...

glitzy, thanks for the Oct. 7 impact date for SP. Somehow I hadn't gotten that marked on my AFL calendar. This is really an exciting time! I think Velvet has some more great songs on it. Superpower is just the beginning! Looking forward to UK promo, too. I wonder when he'll have a window of time to do a solo tour? QAL may be touring again in the fall. It will all work out somehow.

Sunflower said...

Lambert Outlaw WE DID IT!!! I'm streaming SUPERPOWER on YouTube, when I started today it was 999, (can't remember the rest) but at 2:00 pm. Central time it turned into 1 MILLION VIEWS!!! Now I need to jump over to Spotify! WOOHOO!

LAMBERT Outlaw said...

Sunflower .. thanx for the update!! I just came from there & it's 1,101 K+ already!! Everybody (interviewers) always tell ADAM how impressed they are by his fan base (us)!! And they are right .. aint nothing his Glamberts can't accomplish when we mean business .. and we mean BUSINESS!!

Go Glamberts!! We've only just begun!!

All Glambedts streamers High five gave my Zsa Zsa a High five (my doggie) when it hit a million but we need it much higher just keep streaming whenever you have time or can make time. I streamed a bunch the video last night. I'll try to some for both spotify and video tonight. Can't wait for the radio push or whatever. All I can say is that I certainly hope he sings SP at that charity event end of September. Lots of radio stations carrying it and the tv station. I do believe it will fit in with Queen songs the best of any of his songs so far. Doubt they are doing the entire R tour just different great songs. Try to do more streaming for spotify. I will try.

Sue Smith said...

Sunflower love your comments just saw a couple more of them. I must have overlooked a couple. I LOVE SO MUCH THE DJ saying that about the Super Power Video. I loved all of Adam's vids but this one truly stand out for me I think it is very, clever and very good dancing ect. I hope when they do this push it goes to MTV videos because it's very, very good. Only reason I would ever watch it. Love what Capital records said. Seem like they are already playing it in some areas. I said I would try and stream it no I will and have been streaming the video. Need stream spotify more. Going to say this and I'm not wasting my time on E comments. E had nothing but negativity about NE song of Adam's so if she liked that better that's not saying much. Sunflower I truly do love this song and the video so much. It gotten into my head now.
I think the video is very ingenious and the song. Read Adam said he wrote this song 3 years ago but sat on it. He made some changes to it in that time but the basic song written 3 years ago. He gone through alot to get out the new stuff and he deserves all of us to back the heck out of it and I know we are.
Again when I go to the doctor on sept 25 I'll get a new radio in Victoria texas which dept stores are bigger have better stuff a radio CD player. Like I said it's hard to get Houston stations in hopefully I can. That charity festival will also be on tons of radio stations. Maybe local ones dont know they mainly play country stuff.
Everyone stream!
