The clock is tickin’ for Thalia..
The 49-year-old Mexican singer/actress has joined voices with Farina and Sofia Reyes for the catchy new single “Tick Tock.”
The collaboration between Thalía, Reyes and Farina is a well-strategized culmination of their Facebook reality show Latin Music Queens, which came to an end this week.
So titled because the clock is ticking for a guy who gets an ultimatum from his girl, “Tick Tock” is unpretentious, light, catchy bubblegum pop that’s plain fun (down to the video, where the outfit changes are eye candy). Ostensibly, the twist is the fact that the guy is getting said ultimatum, not as a result of philandering or misbehavior, but because he can’t keep up with the girl.
“I put everything, you put nothing; you gotta pull your weight to get in the Mercedes,” the song’s lyrics go.
But the real value lies in putting together three very different female singers into one song where they all get equal play.
Thalía has led the way as a veteran act willing to champion younger names and the final result is three girls who just wanna have fun.
