HOT SONG

 

Hey, remember Chris Richardson, the Justin Timberlake-y Top 5 finisher in season 6 of "American Idol" (the year Jordin Sparks won)? Dude is signed to Cash Money now, and he's featured on the new Tyga single "Far Away" (Cash Money/Universal Republic). Richardson is pretty much the most memorable part of the song, soulfully crooning a One Republic-ish hook to the big Euro-tinged hip-hop single that lands somewhere between Tinie Tempah's breakthrough and Bad Meets Evil's "Lighters" -- safely in hitbound territory.

-- Glenn Gamboa
