Scarlett Johansson Launches Album on imeem

Scarlett Johansson, the famous Hollywood actress who is best known for her amazing looks as well as her appearance in Lost in Translation, has decided to make an attempt at becoming a musician. The full album is currently available exclusively for imeem users. If you aren’t a member you can currently listen to 30 second clips. If you don’t know what imeem is, it is one of the leading social music sites on the web.

I had the opportunity to listen to Johansson’s new album titled, “Anywhere I Lay My Head” and wasn’t that impressed. The music appears to be over produced, possibly a result of Johansson’s less than magnificent voice. I’m not a professional music critic though so take my opinion with a grain of salt. You can listen to her single “Falling Down” in the video player below.

Call me dense but I couldn’t figure out what the point of her video was. I’m assuming that she’s going through hard times in her life but all of the video clips are of her getting dolled up for the camera. Then again there are obvious moments of her appearing sad but the video doesn’t clearly illustrate the cause of her depression. My guess is that the cause is from her breaking up with an ex. Perhaps someone with a little more celebrity gossip knowledge can chime in here.

In the post I described imeem as one of the “leading social music sites on the web.” In reality, the company would prefer to be described as a “social networking site.” According to their PR team, they are the third largest social network on the web with over 24 million active users each month. An impressive number to say the least.
