New Music Video: "Pity Party" by Melanie Martinez

>> Today (6/8/15) is the 7th anniversary of The Music Obsession! *Cue Celebration* Even though I'm not having a pity party, this song has been on repeat for the majority of my day so far. 

>> You'll probably recognize Melanie Martinez as the talented songstress with black and blonde hair split down the middle from The Voice season 3.  Since her time on the show, Melanie has signed with Atlantic Records through which she released her Dollhouse EP in 2014.  Her music shows the dark potential for pop, something perfectly personified in her videos as well.  

>> For 2015, Martinez released her darker, twisted version of Lesley Gore's hit "It's My Party" which she titled "Pity Party." The track is still inherently a catchy pop song, but not in the way you would typically expect.  Even the video starts out with Martinez simply being upset that nobody showed up to her party, but as the video progresses, she eventually snaps - which actually makes things more fun as you can see below.

>> "Pity Party" is the first single from Melanie Martinez's upcoming album, titled Cry Baby. The album is set for release on August 14th through Atlantic.
