CJ Hilton Is Best Served Up ‘Cold’

CJ Hilton is one of the crop of new male R&B young bloods who I'm really digging. The fact that he can sing definitely helps the matter, and the material that I've heard from his direction thus far gets a thumbs up. His brand new music video for the single "Cold Summer" also gets high marks. CJ and his leading lady seem to be in bliss, but there's trouble brewing in their paradise. The video illustrates the song's themes of love-on-the-rocks and the resulting isolation rather well. The album Cold Summer looks like it's been pushed back to 2012 to give CJ more time to cook, but this is definitely one to look for in the new year.

    Did he sample "All I Want Is You" by Miguel feat. J. Cole? The beat/melody sounds VERY similar.

    love this song

  • JustChaz

    Marina has a point, the beginning sounds REALLY similar to that Miguel song, and that So Fresh song has him using the chorus from Sexual Healing a bit. He should start making some truly original music.
    But I have been checking for him ever since he was on that Rapheal Saadiq song, Never Gonna Give You Up, so Ill be keeping a close eye on him.

    I never got that when I heard this song. Only when you said that it sounds like All I Want Is You, did I think "well I guess the lows kinda do" but thats only cause I was looking for it. However, I'm hearing two different melodies over semi-similar beats. Besides, there's plenty of songs that sound similar to other songs. Does that necessarily make them not as good?....I don't think so.

    This song is dope. There are not many songs that I want to hear over and over again but this is one of them.


    I immediately heard "all I want is you" as well... The sample is very similar... not saying he's not allowed to sample the same thing, but its a little too similar... too soon after Miguel's single. You shouldnt do that when youre trying to carve out your own identity/make a name for yourself. The comparisons will definitely come up. I do like the song, but its undeniably similar.

  • Butta

    Well, folks, the song was co-written by Miguel so that might explain why it sounds similar to "All I Want Is You."

    This dude is hot......I really think he brought his own flavor to this song....straight Marvin Gay feel. I digg it 100% and KNOW that it only gets better from here! Do your thing CJ!

    An attention-grabbing discussion is value comment. I believe that it's best to write extra on this subject, it may not be a taboo topic however typically people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
