Remember Blake Lewis? He was that beatbox guy who finished second on American Idol six years back. Unfortunately his music never quite took off commercially although "Heartbreak On Vinyl" was a major club hit going all the way to #1 on the dance chart. All of that past history may soon be swept away if Blake Lewis can follow the Alex Clare path to success.
UK singer-songwriter provided key music for the Internet Explorer 9 commercial campaign. That was a first step toward his breakthrough single "Too Close" turning into a worldwide pop hit single. Blake Lewis' new single "Your Touch," and his first for major label Republic Records, is being used for Internet Explorer 10 commercials. His third studio album Portrait Of a Chameleon is expected to be released later this spring. Will "Your Touch" become the major pop breakthrough Blake Lewis has been looking for these past six years? Check out the song and the commercial below and let us know what you think.
