Billboard review[edit]

"American Idol" alumna Kimberley Locke has scored five hits at AC radio, including No. 1s "Jingle Bells" last December and "Up on the Housetop" a year before. Wisely, new single from upcoming sophomore project focuses on that core, albeit with enough of a contemporary edge to indulge her youthful profile — and perhaps drum up like support at adult top 40. "Change" rocks harder than the pop imprint of debut top 40 hit "8th World Wonder" and a bit less than the brusque, more urban "Wrong," mediating middle ground for a song that could make the grade across several formats. At this point, pop radio appears hesitant to embrace most Idols, so this persuasive effort is tailor-made to deliver on Locke's promise as a potential signature at adult formats. —Chuck Taylor

Music video[edit]

Filmed in Nashville on January 9, 2007, the music video was shot by award winning director Roman White. Roman has directed videos for such artists as Carrie Underwood ("Jesus, Take the Wheel", "Before He Cheats", "Don't Forget to Remember Me"), Hootie and the Blowfish ("One Love"), and Lonestar ("Mr. Mom"). The video debuted on February 7, 2007 on and was added into rotation on VH1 on April 14. The video follows Kimberley walking alone through the city on a cold winter's night. A promotional dance remixed version of the video was also produced and distributed to danceclubs.
