With the success of 'Vegas Girl' still lingering, 'Turn Around' comes at a very ideal moment in the 19-year-old's career. With a team of writers (including Chris Brown, Mikkel S. Eriksen, and more) and production work from Stargate (who has produced some of the biggest hits from Rihanna, Ne-Yo, and Beyonce), Benny Nianco, and Plan J, 'Turn Around' has all the elements of a great pop song. Lyrically and production-wise, 'Turn Around' has that "catch" factor that helps get the song stuck in your head. Even after the song is over, the chorus replays over and over in your head. "So turn around, floating so high up off the ground, floating so high/Turn around, together nothing can stop us now/Listen baby/Turn around, floating so high up off the ground, floating so high/Turn around, together nothing can stop us now/Turn around." With the similar vocal styles between Maynard and Ne-Yo, the song has a very genuine flow to it and provides the sentimental feeling mixed with the high-energy pop beat. 'Turn Around' has all the makings for another big single from the young and rising star.
'Turn Around' is the latest release from Maynard's debut album, 'Contrast.' 'Contrast' is available in stores and as a digital download now. The music video for the song can be seen now on YouTube. Fans can check out 'Turn Around' on AOL Radio's New Pop First.
