" 'Win' is most impressive, wholly hitworthy; and the start of something great for an artist who definitely stands on his own two feet-and high above the crowd at that."
--Billboard review of "You Win Again"

New & Noteworthy:
Jason Raize: You Win Again
by Chuck Taylor
August 5, 2000

 




How'd this happen? Superstar prettyboy looks, a kickin' pop melody and a killer voice. Newcomer Jason Raize, whose dead-on, soaring brand of singing might be compared with a (lot) poppier Billy Porter or Sam Harris, has been hooked up with a killer team for his upcoming Universal debut, "N.YC." Desmond Child produced, and debut single "You Win Again" is a remake of the No. l UK smash written and performed by the Bee Gees years ago. The song is fashioned to meet current top 40-criteria but without the telltale drum-box beat. In fact, comparing this talented young man with the boy-band phenomenon is way off the mark. He's gag and pretty all right, but more in the Savage Garden vein than 'N Sync or Backstreet Boys; at least judging from the two songs found on the CD promo. Top 40 programmers will lift their brows with intrigue as this song progresses and Raize's voice begins to shout out from the mix. "Win" is most impressive, wholly hitworthy; and the start of something great for an artist who definitely stands on his own two feet-and high above the crowd at that. Congrats to Mr. Raize for delivering the goods and to Universal for alloting him material that doesn't understate his grown-up talent.
