Music Friday: Miranda Lambert Blasts to the Top of the Charts With Her Brand New Release, ‘Platinum’

Welcome to Music Friday when we bring your great songs with jewelry, gemstones or precious metals in the title or lyrics. Today we present Miranda Lambert performing “Platinum,” the second track from her newly released chart-topping album of the same name.

In the refrain of this witty, self deprecating song, the sassy Lambert belts out, “Somethin’ bout platinum irrefutably / Looks as good on records / As it does on me.”

While some may argue that Lambert is referring to her platinum blonde hair, we’re going to assume that the white-hot country singer has an affection for the precious metal, as well. She certainly deserves it.

Platinum, the album, made its debut at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart with sales of 180,000 in its first week. This was also Lambert’s fifth consecutive #1 debut on the Top Country Albums Chart, which sets a new record.

Rolling Stone magazine rated the album four stars and noted Lambert “earned her throne” by “singing top-shelf songs in the voice of a woman getting real. Listening to her records is like eavesdropping in a hair salon.”

Newsday gave the album an A rating and claimed that Platinum “isn’t just the finest work of her already-strong career,” it’s now the top country music album of the year.

Lambert first came on the music scene as a finalist on the 2003 season of Nashville Star. In 2011, she married fellow country singer Blake Shelton.

We hope you enjoy this track from Lambert’s brand new album. The lyrics to “Platinum” are below if you’d like to sing along.

“Platinum”
Written by Nicolle Galyon, Natalie Hembry and Miranda Lambert. Performed by Miranda Lambert.

My disposition permeates
The room when I walk in the place
I’m sorry!
By calculation I’m way too much
Pretentiously I bitch a buck
But you bought it!

I can’t exceed my reputation
A small town girl with compensation
Explorin’ all my possibilities
Well don’t you know I’ll blaze a trail
But hell
You can come with me

What doesn’t kill you
Only makes you blonder
My heels and my hotel
They just got taller
Somethin’ bout platinum irrefutably
Looks as good on records
As it does on me

Historically real men prefer
The Marilyns with curls and curves
and I’ve got it!
Genetically or chemically
As long as it contains some bleach
I want it!

You don’t need to be a fighter
Honey, just go one shade lighter
You’ll acquire everything you want
When your roots grow out
And things go South
Hey, go back to the salon!

What doesn’t kill you
Only makes you blonder
My heels and my hotel
They just got taller
Somethin’ bout platinum irrefutably
Looks as good on records as it does on me

Hey! What doesn’t kill you
Only makes you blonder
In fact, my heels and my hotel
They just got taller
Somethin’ bout platinum irrefutably
Looks as good on records as it does on me

Somethin’ bout platinum irrefutably
Looks as good on records as it does on me

Platinum
Platinum
Somethin’ bout platinum
