Ladies We Love: The Lyrical Stylings of Wynter Gordon

For years, the music industry has been taking a turn to meld many genres into one– fusing dance tracks with pop hooks, rock guitar melodies and soft R&B vocals that nobody’s like button can escape.

And at the helm of this transition are many a newcomer-gone-sensation like Ke$ha and Uffie, but with danceable music topping the charts comes a lyrical dilemma… what’s more important– the message or the beat?

Luckily, there’s Wynter Gordon. You may know her from last year’s huge club hit “Dirty Talk,” as well as “Toyfriend” from David Guetta’s One Love, but Wynter has more songwriting chops than your usual I-just-wanna-dance-and-makeout electro pop princess.

Starting her career writing songs for stars such as Mary J. Blige, Danity Kane and laying down tracks for Flo Rida, it was only a matter of time until Wynter Gordon put together an album of her own. And come March, we’re excited to see the release of With the Music I Die, Gordon’s first studio album.

But don’t expect a dozen tracks driven strictly by dance beats, as Wynter has promised a vocally focused release with what we can only assume will be a healthy dose of girl power and sex appeal. And with credits on Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming album, Love?, in addition to penning new work for Estelle and Leighton Meester’s foray into the realm of music, I can guarantee that we’ll be seeing the name Wynter Gordon for a long time to come!
