!! OMG, a Q&A with Chris Willis !!

Over the past few years, music writers have spilled a lot of ink on the resurgence of dance music in mainstream pop music: Flo Rida, Kelis, Black Eyed Peas, Akon and Kid Cudi are just a few of the A-list artists that are whippin’ Top 40 fans into an 808 state with club-ready pop tunes. But before all of those people were household names, Atlanta-based pop vocalist Chris Willis was a big deal in France thanks to his many collaborations with producer David Guetta, which included the dance hits “Love Is Gone”, “Just A Little More Love” and the current hit “Gettin’ Over You”.

Willis is also a seasoned gospel and session singer who’s worked with everyone from Dolly and Dusty to Ricky and RuPaul. This year Willis will try his hand at solo fame with the release of his new single “Louder” (which you can preview below). We caught up with him to chat about the song and what it takes to make it big in the mainstream pop world.
