This song has grown on me so much since its first release and now I absolutely love it. I’m surprised it hasn’t hit the radio yet, but I feel like it will soon. The video is set in a high school setting, not much going on really, but it doesn’t take away from the song at all, check it out!
YES YES YES
With the very recent addition to stream Pharrells upcoming album on itunes, G I R L, we see the release of a highly anticipated track off the album featuring king JT. I have been waiting for Pharrell to drop new music for a while and 2013 was his year, and I don’t see him slowing down with the release of this album. This track has a definite Jackson 5 feel to it, and its absolutely fantastic. Like everything Pharrell has put out recently, it has a very feel good vibe to it, and just puts you in a better mood.
I can’t wait to get into the other tracks, after the repeat button breaks on this youtube video.
Also those of you itunes people, here is the link to stream the entire album—–> G I R L
HAIM has been one of my favorites since they have debuted, they have a very old school pop vibe to their tracks that I absolutely love, and if you haven’t checked out their debut album Days Are Gone, I highly suggest you do that now. You will instantly fall in love with them, or just watch this video and you will be sold!
It has been a while since we have heard anything new from UK band, Coldplay. They make a comeback with the release of ‘Midnight’ which is taken off their upcoming sixth studio album. While I am a Coldplay fan, and yes their music has usually been very somber and you have to be in some sort of mood to listen to it, this track just doesn’t do it for me. It very much sounds more like a Bon Iver track rather than a Coldplay track, which isn’t a bad thing, but for one of the biggest UK acts, it is. Anyway, I don’t see much potential in this track on the charts, but then again, Coldplay has never been much of a chart seeking band.
I’ve never heard of Maxine Ashley until I heard some buzz on her new track produced by the one and only Pharrell. I decided to check it out, and it is everything! You can definitely hear Pharrell’s influence on the track, and Maxine’s smooth R&B vocals fit perfectly with this track. It has a very summertime vibe to it, which is perfect for this time of year. I haven’t looked into much else from her, but I definitely will soon! Repeat.
The already hit song but Beyonce and Jay-z finally gets remix treatment, and who better, than Yeezus himself! I gotta admit, I do have a vendetta against Beyonce, but her most recent album was fantastic, and I haven’t been the biggest Kanye fan as of late, but his verse on this is actually great! Nothing else has changed in the song, just the fact that a Kanye verse has been added to the beginning, so not much of a remix, but anyway take a listen below!
In honor of Valentines Day, one of my all time favorites, JoJo has released a short 4 track EP for us today! You guys already know I’m a huge JoJo fan, and now that shes released from blackground, I’m currently sitting on the edge of my chair for her big comeback with her 3rd album. I’ll take what I can for now, and this is just fine. Take a listen below!
One of my new favorites Elli Ingram releases a fantastic video for an equally fantastic track, ‘When It Was Dark’. Elli first caught my attention with her amazing cover of Kendrick Lamars ‘Poetic Justice‘, now she releases some of her own material and its great! I can’t wait to hear more from this smooth soulful singer, hope she makes it over to the states soon!
Nicki is back, dropping her new single just a few minutes ago!
This is the kind of Nicki I can get down with, none of that radio pop friendly mess, this is the nicki that kills features on songs, not the superbass madness. Anyway, Loving her new look and everything about this song! Check it out!
