Ohhh. Check this out!  Cady Groves just revealed via Facebook that her brand new single "Forget You" will drop next Tuesday (June 25) on iTunes & Amazon.  On top of that, it's featured on The Smurfs 2 soundtrack.  Coincidentally, today, Britney Spears just released her single "Ooh La La"  which also appears on the soundtrack. That album which also has songs from Owl City and Nelly Furtado will be available on July 23rd.

23-year-old Cady Groves is one of those artists that comes once in a blue moon. Super talented who writes her own songs, doesn't need auto-tuning and could take you in a fight even though she's a little over 5 feet tall.  Unlike most pop stars today who patronize their fans with an air of fakeness, it's not unusual to see Cady curse on stage as she did when we saw her open up for Hot Chelle Rae at The Roxy a couple years ago.  

She's the anti-pop star. A scrapper with an attitude.  So when you listen to her songs, you'll understand where her temper comes from.  It seems she had to grow up quick, living in a family of seven kids, she graduated high school at the age of 16 and went to culinary school. 

She moved to Los Angeles to write her album and fell in and out of love with a married man.  Writing of breakups and revenge became her therapy and  when she sings of hard breakups and being alone you can sense that she's lived through it.
