When Slip 'N' Slide Records announced their 2008 Next Big Superstar Tour, artists from all over the country answered the call. But only one, Mike Bless aka Mr. Make It Happen, could win the title. Though there's a whiff of Flo Rida's breakthrough hit "Get Low" track-wise and Bless' staccato, twang-ed out, upbeat delivery -- hopefully Bless won't abandon us for a career in straight pop music like Flo did.
"Do it Like This" status as a strip club anthem is clear from the time you press "play," with a female vocalist declaring, "If I was a stripper I would do it like this." Click here to hear the track, and hit the jump to see footage of Bless' unanimous Next Big Superstar win.
