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!
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.
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!
Lets be honest, the song isn’t anything life changing, it’s catchy, and very radio friendly and combines two of pops biggest superstars into one sexy song. When I say sexy I mean it, the video, once again, has no depth or anything, but who can complain when its just Rihanna and Shakira on the same screen, for 3 and a half minutes. Anyway, not much else to say, just watch it!
Hot off the heels of his DUI arrest, and now the petition to deport him back to Canada, he still manages to release his new video ‘Confident’, featuring Chance The Rapper. I have mixed feelings about the way The Biebs is going in his career, he released a couple of decent tracks a while back with his new R&B vibe, but his attitude and all other things have made him come off as an arrogant kid.
The video is pretty basic as is the song, even has a Takis name drop in it, really biebs? I feel like his audience will eat it up though.
There are seriously no words to describe how amazing this collaboration is, Disclosure and Queen Mary shut down all aspects of music on this track! Been following Disclosure for about 3 years now, and it is absolutely amazing to see them reach this level of fame, which is easily much deserved. These 2 superstars performed together in New York, in what I can only imagine was a show that wasn’t to be missed. Anyway, enough praise for the duo, if you don’t know by now…..
Side Note: I’m absolutely jealous to anyone who is going to the sold out Disclosure set in Dallas!
Sam Smith is one of two male soul singers from the UK that I have been following for quite some time, and each of them has yet to disappoint. Sam Smith, who recently won BBC’s Sound of 2014, and I have to say, It’s about time. Sam Smith first caught my attention when Disclosure first released their smash ‘Latch’ which featured the very talented singer. Now a couple of years later, here we are, Sam Smith debuts his first solo music video and single ever, ‘Money On My Mind’. This track is everything I expected it to be, showcasing all of Sam Smiths vocal abilities, but yet keeping his kind of garage/house vibe. Sam Smith is slowly becoming a major star, and I can’t wait for him to hit it big in the USA.
