NEW MUSIC: Mary J. Blige – Nobody But You

e9fa2504

I have to admit, The London Sessions is churning out some hits, including this track tittled ‘Nobody But You’. While this isn’t as strong as ‘Right Now’, I love that The Queen is doing something different and doing it very well. She is stepping up from all other Divas in today’s industry, and changing the game entirely, being a step ahead of everyone else. This track is still great, and keeps the same kind of disclosure sound and has Mary J. belting over the dance floor beat.

I can’t wait to hear the album in its entirety!

NEW MUSIC: Gorgon City – Go All Night [Ft. Jennifer Hudson]

Eton Messy

 

I can’t stress how huge the UK scene is musically right now. Gorgon City is making quite the name for themselves, with their debut album being released less than a week away, Zane Lowe premiers another fire track. ‘Go All Night’ features the soulful Jennifer Hudson, and while she really brings nothing special to the Kiesa written track, well we all know she can still sing and that’s all that matters. Anyway, this track is pure dance flow, club anthem and I love every moment of it. I can’t wait to hear the rest of their album!

Take a listen!

NEW MUSIC: Clean Bandit – Real Love [Ft. Jess Glynn]

clean-bandit-billboard-650

After being a couple months late on the rise to success of ‘Rather Be’, Clean Bandit returns with the beautiful Jess Glynn for the smash hit ‘Real Love’. This combination is still sitting pretty on the top 40 charts here in the USA, and while it has run its course over in the UK, they don’t waste time to churn out another hit. ‘Real Love’ will definitely gain just as much success as ‘Rather Be’, it definitely keeps the Clean Bandit sound with a sort of video game electronic feel to it, and I’m loving everything about it. Don’t even get me started on how fantastic Jess Glynn sounds on this track, I really hope her career hits off over here in the states!

NEW MUSIC: Fergie – L.A. Love (La La)

fergie-la-love

Fergie is back after a long 8 year hiatus in the solo industry. She brings us some fire on her new track ‘L.A. Love’ produced by DJ Mustard, and I have to say I’m in love with this. Her debut solo attempt brought so much fire and crowned her The Dutchess. Here, with ‘L.A. Love’ she brings us more originality doing something that isn’t heard on the radio today, which will definitely give her the top 10 hit she was looking for. Lyrically, there isn’t much to this song at all, but I mean what top 40 song can you really say has fantastic lyrics anyway.

I can’t wait to hear the rest of this album, because this is just the beginning.

The Dutchess is back!

NEW MUSIC: Allen Stone – Freezer Burn

allen-stone-press-2014-650-430

Allen Stone has been one of my favorites for quite some time now, his previous albums have each been fantastic, and I can’t even begin to talk about his vocal ability. The soul singer is coming back with his new album Radius, and this is just one of the tracks off, what I imagine will be, a fantastic album. ‘Freezer Burn’ sounds like a mix of The Black Keys and Prince all mashed up in to one soulful song, which if you know both artists, you know that it is a recipe for greatness.

I am more than excited to see him on tour next week, be sure to check out his tour dates and catch him in a city near you!

NEW MUSIC: Danity Kane – Rhythm of Love

By now I feel like everyone knows the group has broken up, but if you haven’t well there you go. There was lots of drama surrounding the whole situation, and I didn’t care to read the whole thing, I was basically concerned with the music. For a while it seemed like we weren’t going to get anything more from them, but as of yesterday, Aubrey and Shannon have come out and said that the album will be dropping next month. Dawn hasn’t spoken about the release, but the other 2 have stated that this album is for the fans.

All that being said, I have seen them perform this song live on youtube, and it’s not my favorite from the group, because I am still waiting for ‘All in a Days work’, but its start. They took a more dance/pop feel with this track, a complete opposite from the smash that is ‘Lemonade’. I’m just excited to hear what went on in the studio, so now I just have to wait and see.

Also you can hear snippets of their entire album here

NEW MUSIC: Kendrick Lamar – I

kendrick

 

I’m not the biggest critic of rap/hip-hop music, but I do have mad respect for Kendrick Lamar. Aside from the ‘rappers’ that rule the charts these days, Kendrick keeps it different and real. I loved his previous album, and now he releases what will probably be a huge track this year from his upcoming album. ‘I’ is hard hitting, and samples the Isley Brothers, giving it a sort of outkast kind of feel, which is a great comparison. There is nothing out there right now that sounds like this, and I fully support Kendrick after this track, and can’t wait to hear what else he has for this next album!
