Matisse, "Better Than Her"

Track Review
4

Twin pop duo Brit and Alex parted ways last year, and while her sister has since moved on to graduate school, Brit Smith now goes by Matisse and is shaking up the clubs with solo debut single "Better Than Her." The song finds the 23-year-old boasting about her superiority as a girlfriend-though her ex has found someone new, his wandering eyes suggest he's not entirely happy. Matisse relishes his regret. "I don't really feel so bad, 'cause I know you're better without her/ What about her?" she sings. Anthemic "hey, heys" combine with Matisse's sweet yet sassy vocal to lure listeners to the dancefloor. Already top 10 on Hot Dance Club Songs, "Better Than Her" has the kind of irresistible melody and lyrics that could work on top 40.-Michael Menachem
