It's About Us
Label: SYCO MUSIC/COLUMBIA RECORDS
The winners of X Factor USA's final season won't let you forget they're real-life lovers -- "I just wanna believe in you and me," they coo, like a love-struck Sonny & Cher. And the amorous subtext fleshes out the crisp pop, as when Sierra intones, "Kiss me on the neck/ Leave a beautiful scar anywhere you like." Long before the album closes with moody jazz trumpet, they've gamely cycled through strummed guitars ("Scarecrow") and the rock swirl of "Here We Go," although their best track is simple country stomp "Cheating," in which our lovebirds ask one another who's going to stray first.
