80 Billboard Rating

NEON HITCH
"Fuck U Betta" (3:23)
Producer: Benny Blanco
Writers: Neon Hitch, Benjamin Levin, Lauren Christy
Publisher: various
Reprise Records

Neon Hitch is no stranger to collaboration: with a guest spot on Gym Class Heroes' latest hit "Ass Back Home," and contributions to Ke$ha's "Blah Blah Blah" and 3OH!3's "Follow Me Down," the English songstress has proven her pipes on high-profile releases. Now it's her turn for the spotlight: on "Fuck U Betta," the Benny Blanco-produced first single off her upcoming solo debut album, "Beg, Borrow and Steal," Hitch offers a slice of addicting electro-pop while simultaneously asserting her feminine power. "Hey, hey/ Few things that I want to say / Still got my dignity," she declares. Pulsating Euro-pop rhythms drive the chorus, jump-starting the track into a sexually charged club banger. If "Fuck U Betta" is any indication of the rest of "Beg, Borrow, and Steal," her solo outlook looks promising.
