AOL is only saying this because the record label Cash Cash is on is making them. As much as I liked Cash Cash when they were the Consequence, they have really done nothing to build a fan base. How many national tours did they go on? Why does AOL think their is a big buzz behind the band? If they are going to "pop" its because AOL will make them pop, not a huge groundswell from actual fans.
Did you miss the big tour with metro station? That's a pretty big deal. And you should probably watch their EPK video on youtube, there's throngs of girls watching them play acoustically after the shows. They're getting TONS of fans, and quickly.
I'm pretty sure AOL also thought TREOS were about to pop too... I don't think you can say that their label had a TON to do with that. I'm pretty sure the About To Pop thing is at least moderately legit.
