Snap Judgment: J.C. Chasez's 'You Ruined Me'

Posted on

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: J.C. Chasez’s solo debut, Schizophrenic, was an overlooked gem that still gets regular airplay at Casa Slezak. But when “Until Yesterday,” the first single off his sophomore effort, didn’t become the new “SexyBack,” I figured dude might have to set his sights on being a backup singer for his old bandmate Justin Timberlake. Surprisingly, though, it looks like his label hasn’t given up, as AOL Music is streaming a new Chasez single, “You Ruined Me,” on its homepage today.

Much to my chagrin, however, the former ‘N Sync-er’s latest plays more like a reheated version of Nick Lachey’s “What’s Left of Me” than the dirty dancefloor fare of failed singles like “Some Girls (Dance With Women)” and “All Day Long I Dream About Sex.” Seriously, did I just hear the phrase “standing outside your door in the pouring rain”? I can’t bear to hit the replay button and find out. This, of course, probably means it’s going to be the smash hit of the summer, but I’m just not feeling it. How ’bout you, PopWatchers? (You can hear for yourself after the jump!)
