People are going nuts for Mika, the hot young Lebanese singer from the UK whose songs are surfacing all over the Internet. On his debut album, Life in Cartoon Motion, due out Feb. 8, his ridiculously catchy tunes sound alternately like Freddie Mercury (particularly the theatrical "Grace Kelly") and a more psychedelic version of James Blunt. On "Relax" (below) he's leaning a little more toward New Order while still forging a signature style. Take a listen and tell me what you think: Is Mika the next big thing?
