LISTEN: Matthew Morrison's First Single Includes No White Rapping

matthew-morrison225.jpgMovieline HQ is already buzzing with the sounds of "Loser Like Me" -- it's an early candidate for "Song of the Spring" in my household, at least -- and on Monday, Ryan Seacrest debuted another Glee original. Sorta. Glee star Matthew Morrison will release a solo album this spring, and the first single has finally premiered, courtesy of The 'Crest. So, is it better than "Loser Like Me"? Does Morrison pull a Will Schuester and white-rap this sucker?

Nope. And, nope! "Summer Rain" sounds like a cross between Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson, but perhaps a bit whiter. That's not terrible -- Morrison has previously cited Justin Timberlake and Michael Buble as influences -- but it isn't likely to make Gleeks quiver in their Chuck Taylors. Listen to the full song below.

    I'm sad at how generic the song sounds. For a song intended to encourage someone to have sex on the roof in the sight of unseen strangers, it came across with the same amount of passion as someone being asked to share an ice cream zone.
