SnapCackle Pop Music Awards - SNAP Single of the Year


There were son many nomination this year it was hard to draw up a short list, so we created a long one instead. The nominees are...
Guy Sebastian & Lupe Fiasco - Battle Scars
Usher - Climax
Nicki Minaj - Starships
Karmin - Brokenhearted
Little Mix - DNA
Marina & The Diamonds - Power & Control
 David Guetta / Sia - Titanium

Kelly Clarkson - Stronger
Rita Ora - How We Do Party
Justin Bieber - Boyfriend
  The Saturdays - 30 Days

And the winner is...
David Guetta - Titanium Feat. Sia
If any song represents 2012 better than Titanium we don't know about it. This was a huge smash hit around the world and introduced Australian artist Sia to a whole new audience. The song is simply stunning and cements David Guetta as not only one of the best dance acts in the world but one of the best songwriters as well. Choosing Sia was a stroke of genius - her powerful vocals suiting the track perfectly. And topped off with a brilliant video, Titanium is undoubtedly the SNAP Single of 2012..!

Runner Up...
Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
Whilst Titanium may have been the most amazing single of the year, Call Me Maybe probably had the biggest impact of any song this year. This song spawned thousands of parodies - not because it's a bad song - it's not - it's because its the most catchy track of the year!! Canadian Carly Rae Jepsen was unleashed on the world and before long the track was number one EVERYWHERE. 'Hey I just met you, and this is crazy" became the lyrics on everyones lips and Call Me Maybe was cemented as one of the biggest hits of 2012. We think there's only one other song that my have had a bigger impact - that would be Gangnam Style - but Call Me Maybe is not only catchy, it's also a brilliant pop track with an equally brilliant video - definately worthy of Runner up in the SNAP Single of the year..!


Honourable mention...
Karmin - Brokenhearted
This is what we love - Brokenhearted is Pop at its core - upbeat, fun, catchy, with great vocals and a groovy beat. We fell totally in love with Karmin this year and Brokenhearted represent one of our best songs of the year. We had a chat to Amy from Karmin this year and not only is she talented she's incredibly sweet too! The song grabbed attention world wide and introduced this talented duo to the charts. Brokenhearted may not be one of the biggest songs of the year but it's definately worthy of an honorable mention in the SNAP Single of the Year..!
