My thoughts… So, yeah, I’m back in Brazil. I love Spanish in rock music but I love Portuguese just a little bit more! If, like me, you’re American, CW7‘s catchy pop/rock fits between the pop side of Paramore and the rock side of Kelly Clarkson. If you’re Brazilian, CW7 sounds like a more pop-oriented version of Agnela. “Será Você” is CW7‘s signature song, like “Podia Ser” is Agnela‘s, but CW7, like Agnela, have many good songs to offer! Of course, CW7 has three albums (to date) and Agnela only had one! However, if you do the math, you’ll notice that CW7‘s three albums are really only two albums worth of original songs – but they’re all good! Oh, and Mia has an amazing voice! Listen to her sing Cee-Lo Green‘s “Fuck You” – in English – (here), or Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” (here). I don’t know what the current status of CW7 is but, if they’re still a band – a new album is long overdue!

Did I mention that I think Mia is amazingly beautiful? Well, I do. She is.
