Aly & AJ releases their first single in 10 years, ‘Take Me.’ It’s a bop.

It’s been 10 years since the sister duo of Aly and AJ Michalka released a single as “Aly & AJ.” They released a banger as 78Violet a couple of years ago. They have decided to give us the song that we’ve all been waiting for and this was my reaction to it:

That’s right, Aly & AJ. It took too long for you to call back and I’m slightly bitter that it took you this long to return in my life. But hey, this is a Potential Breakup Song because my blog doesn’t need one. Also, you follow me on Twitter and I’m forever in love with you two.

“Take Me” is everything I didn’t know that I need in an Aly & AJ. It’s a pure pop song that makes you want to just dance like no one is watching. It a song that just makes you super happy while you listening to it. “Take Me” has an 80s/Electronic pop feel to it as they sing about making a move and not waiting a long ass time because the Michalka sisters ain’t got time for that. There’s also some slight sexual tension in the song. It could just be me but when I heard “If I could sing my teeth into you,” I was like “Damn, I would hate to be the guy that took too long to make a move with Aly & Aj.”

It’s a bop. I thought that “Hothouse” was a jam but “Take Me” really changes the game. The best part is that this is the start of a full album. That’s right, Rejoice because we will have a full length Aly & Aj album. My body can’t handle this wait for this album. The album is also supposed to have a women empowerment theme to it and it sounds like something that the world needs in 2017.

Until the album comes out, I will live through “Take Me” and the entire Aly & AJ library on Apple Music because I bought both of their albums like a true die-hard fanboy.

#FeaturedFriday Aly & AJ


It’s time for another #FeaturedFriday! And since Disney Channel still has us feeling the feels from the weekend long DCOM, Disney Channel Original Movie, I decided to let the spotlight shine on the duo that took the Disney Channel by storm-Aly & AJ.

Alyson Michalka starred in the underlooked classic known as “Phil of the Future.” She sang a little song in an episode and the next thing we know, AJ Michalka came into the scene and two sang “Do You Believe in Magic?” for Aly’s new movie about magic (I think it was called “Now You See It.” It was okay. I watched for Aly. She did good). They were this rocker girls that made really good music with meaning. My inner tween self related to the music they were putting out.  They released another studio album and a christmas album before they changed their name to “78Violet” and went off on their own. 

They have been busy acting, releasing the killer new single “Hothouse.” They are now back as Aly & AJ and working on a new album!!!
