In a time when “superstars” are far and few between, every element of the machine is getting behind Bobby. MTV’s full-fledged support? Check, as he’s their PUSH (Play Until Someone Hears) artist of the week. Atlantic? Check, otherwise we’d be offering this for download instead of a stream. The early response to the album from those who’ve heard it? It’s sounding like all of the expectations will be met. So the setup is there. And as “Nothing On You” continues its mash on the charts, I would expect the Hayley Williams-assisted “Airplanes” to follow suit soon enough. So, yes, the stars are aligned for super to happen.
