The Singles – Candy

Ever questioned if Scarlett Johansson would ever be in a pop group? Well you can stop hurting your brain over it because I have the answer for you now…and it’s yes. The world famous movie actress – Black Widow in the Avenger/Marvel movies, Lucy, Lost in Translation, Hitchcock, Her, the list goes on – has joined with Holly Miranda, Kendra Morris, Julia Haltigan and Este Haim (one third of Haim, the one with the bass faces) to be called The Singles and have a ‘super-pop’ song called Candy. “The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls,” Scarlett Johansson said in a press release. “I love Grimes. And I love the Bangles. And I love the Go-Go’s. I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke.” In my opinion, I really like it. It’s catchy and so catchy that it’s annoying and right in your face. A great super 80s synth-pop sound-alike song – it always makes me smile when Johansson goes ‘you make my mouth water yum yum pop.’
