Jesse McCartney: 'Leavin'

By
Jesse McCartney: 'Leavin'
Released on Monday, Jun 9 2008

The stabbing, near-industrial beats that open 'Leavin' make Jesse McCartney's intentions very clear: the baby-faced former boybander wants to grow up. He uses the video to drive home his message, ogling a gorgeous model for three minutes or so before slipping her the tongue at the end.

In fact, 'Leavin' is the musical equivalent of McCartney's first tuft of chest hair, a hard-edged pop gem that wouldn't sound out of place on an Usher or Chris Brown album. Combining smooth, radio-friendly choruses with trendy electro production from Tricky and The Dream - the team behind 'Umbrella' - it makes McCartney sound fresh and a little bit sexy without scaring off the milk 'n' cookies brigade. Baby-faced or not, he's looking like a sharp operator.
