King of New York as a solo?

I'm in need of some professional opinions. I have a student that wants to use "King of New York" from Newsies for a solo. My feeling is that it is more of a group song and not so much suited for a solo. I feel like I'm bursting her bubble as she seems to have her heart set on this song. What do you all think?

We used it last year as a tap solo for a dancer, she did very well with it in competitions. It has to be something you're comfortable choreographing with though.
