New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Solo 7's a man that likely hasn't always sung dance-pop songs. His Facebook page, for instance, is filled with distinctly Christian messages. Nevertheless, he's described "Just Wanna Dance" as an innocent love song about a first crush.

It opens with what sounds like a guy sighing after taking a big sip from a soda. Solo 7 then sings its words over a sparse groove. Instrumentally, it begins with percussion, before adding in subtle keyboard and empathetic backing vocals.

Solo 7's vocal is sensual and sincere. He has a high, pure singing voice, which he uses to implore a girl to dance with him. It's an unlikely combination of sexiness and innocence, as dancing is oftentimes the first step in a romance. However, Solo 7 doesn't sound like an innocent dance partner. Instead, he sounds more like he wants a little more than just a tour around the dancefloor. The song feels a little bit like Bruce Springsteen's "I'm On Fire." It's the sound of a man that can barely contain himself. He's singing about dancing but thinking about a whole lot more.

The song includes a brief bridge toward the very end. It finds Solo 7 admitting he doesn't know much. This part reminds one of Sam Cooke's "What a Wonderful World." The song's backing vocal section also has an old school vibe running through it. Although the production on this track is sparse, its historical references make it something that may appeal to Bruno Mars fans. It's highly likely many of Mars' fans don't even realize how much music history he weaves into his contemporary sounds. For young people today, it's all new to them. Older folks, however, enjoy a lot of Mars' songs because they remind them of musical yesteryear. This is not because contemporary music is all bad, but because older styles have a time-tested quality about them that give them staying power.

This is just one Solo 7 song, but one must wonder about his influences. Like Mars, is he inspired by music that may have come along long before he was ever alive? It would be unfair to make such a large assumption based on just one song. However, if his other music is anything like this track, this is a musician that has an eye for the past, as well as the future.

At only 3:17 in length, it's a short and sweet offering. Instead of trying to turn a simple song about dancing into an epic statement, which would have been a big mistake, Solo 7 keeps it concise. Like the conversation that must most certainly have inspired its lyric, Solo 7 doesn't beat around the bush. He knows what he wants, like a guy at a restaurant who doesn't even need to look at the menu, and immediately calls for the waiter. He wants to be blunt; he wants to have physical contact with his crush. It's one of the oldest song subjects in all of pop music, but it also never seems to get old. Dancing together to music is a human mating ritual as old as time. With "Just Wanna Dance," Solo 7 nicely carries on this tradition.
