OK, I know what you're thinking: "Not another Britney clone!" True, we've already had Britney, Christina, Jessica and the much underrated Mandy, but Kaci is only 13, and she doesn't seem to be trying for the sexy image. "Paradise" is an uptempo Latino-style song which has received fairly good airplay on the radio and on The Box. While Kaci doesn't have the best voice, she can carry a tune well, and the song is certainly catchy. Difficult to predict, but Top 20 looks likely.
What would you get if you crossed the Latin beats of Jennifer Lopez with the teeny pop of Britney? The answer: 13-year-old Kaci's debut single "Paradise". Riding on the wave of Latin fever, this single will appeal mainly to young pop fans, but there's enough of them out there to make it a big hit. It's catchy enough, and she has vocals beyond her years, but do we really need more of this throw-away pop clogging up the charts?!
