Blaster is the unreleased debut studio album of French electropop recording artist and entertainer Jérémy Amelin, finalist of French music TV show "Star Academy 5" - French version of American Idol broadcast on French TV channel TF1.[1] The album was originally scheduled to be released on October 24, 2011,[2] but X-Cite Records cancelled the album release.

Development and background[edit]

In late 2009, X-Cite Records announced that Amelin was back in the studio recording his debut album "Blaster", and confirmed that the album would feature an electropop song about Britney Spears, titled "Spears Me". Amelin revealed the storyline of the song, stating :

"This track is super hot and made of sexy whispered vocals. Basically, "Spears Me" is about her giving me her infamous sexy moves while both making love on stage, just like a one-night stand but that would be a one-night stage (laughs) [...] She's the sexiest woman alive, so I just wanted to express how men feel about her. She’s a worldwide fantasy you know”.[3]

A 30-second snippet of his single "Oh, Oh ! (feat. Angelika)" premiered on December 7, 2009.[4] The single was released worldwide on January 25, 2010.[5]

In August 2010, Amelin revealed that he recorded three potential singles for a 2011-release : "Imma Bitch", "Undone" and "Werk It".[6] He later confirmed "Imma Bitch" as a promotional single, which premiered during a live concert in Manama, Bahrain on November 17, 2010. The single premiered online on December 17, 2010.[7]

X-Cite Records announced on April 20, 2011 that Amelin teamed up with 90210 TV star Jessica Lowndes to release a featuring version of his single "Undone", which premiered online on April 29, 2011 and was released worldwide on May 23, 2011.[8]

On May 13, 2011, Amelin confirmed the release date of his debut album "Blaster" — produced by James Rendon and Kayden Boche — during a TV interview given to Public Magazine.[9]

He also confirmed the album tracklisting : "Rock The World", "Undone (feat. Jessica Lowndes)", "Werk It", "Cry 4 U (Hell No)", "Imma Bitch", "Oh, Oh ! (feat. Angelika)", "When The Gunz Come Out", "Turn It Up (Louder)", "Spears Me", "Unlove Pill (feat. Ro Danishei)", "I'm Sorry", "Could You Be ?", "Black Widow", "Sorry Adam", and "Fire With The Rain".[10]

"Blaster" was originally scheduled to be released on October 24, 2011,[2] but X-Cite Records cancelled the album release.
