New Candice Glover song "Damn" -- about being the 'other woman' -- leaks before album release

Candice Glover's debut album "Music Speaks" was released Feb. 18.


"American Idol" season 12 winner and St. Helena Island native Candice Glover tweeted Saturday afternoon that "Damn," a song from her upcoming album "Music Speaks" was leaked online.

"I didn't know ... but I hope you guys like it," the singer tweeted to her 143,000 followers on Twitter. "On the bright side, music speaks comes out in exactly ONE MONTH! Counting down :)"

The song appeared on the website In "Damn," Glover sings from the perspective of the other woman in a love triangle. The song has a strong, rather jaunty piano backup and a catchy chorus of "Damn, damn, damn, I fell in love with someone else's man." Rest assured, she regrets it in the end.

"Cried" is available for digital download. Her debut album, "Music Speaks," originally scheduled to be released on July 16 of this year, was postponed twice and is now expected Feb. 18.

Glover's "Idol" coronation song and first single "I Am Beautiful" was released the day after she won. It reached No. 33 on the Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and No. 93 on the Billboard Hot 100.

"Idol's" 13th season began Jan. 15. Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick Jr. are judges. Former judge Randy Jackson will return to the show as the in-house mentor, replacing Jimmy Iovine.

On the Jan. 23 episode expect to see the audition of Beaufort resident and Glover's best friend Laquan Fields. Glover is also expected to appear on a future episode of "Idol" to promote her album.
