Music Buzz: Archuleta's first single "Crush" to air on August 12, 2008

Crush, by the Crusher

Archie is reported (well, more of a result of excellent detective work by Nicole of Idolforums) to have a single listed under ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), named "Crush". This was discovered a few days ago, and naturally, all the fangirls/boys came spazzing and freaking out (in a good way) over this, possibly, as the first single out.

Lo and behold, today's news at All Access, (you will have to be registered to see this sidebar on the left) reports that Archie's new single "Crush" will impact radios on August 12, 2008 . The single will air on radios everywhere (hopefully soon enough here in my region!) although it wouldn't yet be available for download right away. This is a strategy on the record label's part to make sure the single gains enough following (not that Archie doesn't already have a ton) and exposure before putting it up. I love the fact that Archie is signed with Jive!

As for the people involved, or those he is working with for the single, here's MJ's report:

Checking out the ASCAP listing for “Crush”, it has Dave Hodges, late of the band Evanescence–and famously the subject of Kelly Clarkson’s blistering single “Never Again”–listed as a writer. Hodges wrote “Because of You” and “Addicted” with Kelly for her album Breakaway. ASCAP also lists two other writers on the cut, Jess Clayton Cates, and Emanuel Kiriakou.

More more on David’s upcoming album–it’s been reported that he’s working with The Underdogs, Kara DioGuardi and Ryan Tedder of the band OneRepublic.

So they're definitely one of the best hitmakers out there, that's for sure. And I am keeping my fingers crossed that Archie will be on top of the Billboard charts soon enough. Although i found my boo's habit for checking the US charts for what songs to look forward to as a bit obssessive, I am conceding to the thought of going all geeky and follow the US, UK, World Charts to keep track of Archie's status. I need to find a better word for obsession.

I find it funny Cowell said he "crushed the competition", and that Seacrest kept calling him "the crusher" on the show. Papa Johns even labeled him as a "juggernaut". Looks like 19E and Jive agrees. Haha, although the song may well be about heart-related issues.

To add to the fangirliness, and give you an idea of how freaking excited I am, here's how i look like:
