This is track I completely forgot to post, and now that it has hit the Top 40 in the UK, I was reminded of how huge this track really is. Katy B has always been a favorite of mine, and this track changes nothing. I respect her for doing something different from the usual mainstream and yet still making it, well at least in the UK. I wish the USA would latch on to this talent, but who knows we are very slow when it comes to oversea talent.
As you can tell by my previous post, I really love this song, and I was expecting a lot from the video and you know what, it actually delivers. I don’t know what these boys have in mind for their next album but if this is the sound they are going for they will have a whole new market eventually. Well, at least once everyone gets over the fact that it is One Direction and thinks about the music instead.
I apologize for taking so long posting this, I definitely have not forgot about it. Daley, who remains one of my favorites since I found him, has graced us with a video for his smash tune titled ‘Broken’. ‘Broken’ to sum it all up is pretty much the male break up anthem and it is perfect in every way. Daley’s vocals have never sounded better, and with each track he puts out from his Days & Nights album gets me more and more excited for the release of it.
More recently he has put out a track with rapper Nelly called ‘Heaven‘, which he performed in NYC over the weekend on Good Morning America, hopefully giving him the acknowledgement that he deserves.
Here’s to ‘Heaven’ gaining some success over here, and here’s to Daley giving us a USA tour before that success hits!
I was going through, voting for the MOBO’s in the UK and I came across this talent in the newcomers section, and decided to check her out seeing as she was the only one I didn’t know. Turns out, I fell in love immediately after hearing her cover of Poetic Justice. She has a very Amy Winehouse/Maverick Sabre which immediately drew me towards her, but keeping her own identity with a little breakdown during the verses. Her voice is perfection and this video doesn’t really do justice of some of her live videos.
Anyway, I would definitely watch out for her, especially since Adele is on hiatus at the moment, there is space for her in the market right now
Luke James is a talent from across the seas, who definitely deserves all kinds of praise for his vocals alone. James first caught my attention after his acoustic greatness of ‘I Want You‘, before you continue reading this, check that video out right now and you will appreciate this post a whole lot more. Anyway, back to the song ‘Oh God’, which falls right into the category of Luke James, Amazing. Sounding a bit like Frank Ocean at moments, which is never a bad thing. James brings the soulful and smooth R&B vocals that we have needed for some time. ‘Oh God’ is one of my favorite tracks from Luke James, and I hope to hear more from him soon!
The king, Justin Timberlake, releases visuals for his first single from his upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience Part 2. ‘Take Back The Night’ has the sound of old school Jackson 5, and yet keeps it current to fit in with the top 40. Justin Timberlake can do no wrong in my books, and I am just as excited for part 2 of his album as I was about the 1st half.
It seems as though Nelly is making quite a comeback, from his terrible country mixed single, and now to this. ‘Get Like Me’ has Pharrell productions written all over it, and I don’t mind at all. The beat is catchy, as are the lyrics, and throw on Nicki Minaj who is perfect when she is the feature of a track, you have a recipe for a top 40 smash.
The king, Justin Timberlake, releases visuals for one of my favorite cuts from the album ‘Tunnel Vision’. Although the video is a bit weak in some aspects, being it has nothing really to do with the song, I still couldn’t take my eyes off it. That might be a little biased coming from me, but I still love this song no matter what, the beat is still on a different league all together. Some are saying the video is kind of a blow to the ‘Blurred Lines’ video of Robin Thicke, but who knows!
Tinie Tempah makes his much awaited return to the music business with the release of the smash hit ‘Trampoline’. Tinie has always been one to make tracks for the dance scene and this track is definitely no different. I don’t really care for the 2 chainz feature, but all together this track is definitely a club hit across the seas. I just hope, like so many other tracks, it gains success over here in the UK like his previous tracks did!
After almost a year after releasing ‘Bad Girls’, M.I.A returns with a banging new single ‘Bring The Noize’. This track is definitely a classic M.I.A tune, with the chopped and repeated vocal beat, and her classic M.I.A flow. This track is absolute perfection, and just gets me more and more excited for her new project I guess. I’m not sure when she is supposed to release her next album, but I’ll wait patiently, from the tracks I have heard so far it sounds like its going to be sick!
