Yeah, this is happening.
I have so many mixed feelings about this. The first 10 seconds of this song slays everything. Then the lyrics kick in and you realize that they are all under the age of 21. Now the video gives me a little bit a life, but at the same time they are aged 15-20. They are going in the right direction, just a little too soon. I can’t lie, I am interested in what else they have to come up with.
I’m also here for Normani, because she is the only one killing it in this era.
My American viewers may know Stromae as the french guy behind ‘Alors on Danse’, but the rest of the world probably knows him for a whole lot more. Last year he released his second album, Racine Carrée, which has produced such hits as ‘Papaoutai’, ‘Tous les mêmes’, and now this huge hit ‘Ta Fête’. He previously released this video under, what seemed like less of a budget, but now he has revamped it with a bigger budget and a whole world cup theme behind it. Loving this song, and video, and the album is genius. Hopefully, we, the USA will catch on to this man soon, he needs some exposure over here.
There are no words for how amazing this is.
I’m getting so many different vibes from this video and I love all of them. Let’s start with how big the song itself is, FKA Twigs’ vocals are pure perfection over this building beat that gets stronger as the song goes on. I can’t even begin to explain the visuals. I am getting a little Game of Thrones/Aaliyah, queen of the dammed vibes from it. I don’t have any other words for this, just listen to it.
I only know Sinead Harnett from her collaborations with Rudimental and Disclosure, both of which are huge tracks. Now she returns with a very 90′s flavored track titled ‘No Other Way’. This track brings a little nostalgia mixed with a little modern vibe. Sinead sounds absolutely incredible over this flow, and I’m assuming that has to do with Snakehips, who I am not familiar with yet. Anyway, this track is definitely a big one for her, and I hope I hear more from her solo side soon because this is genius!
This is one of those posts that is getting posted because you just need to hear the talent. Sam Smith is such a genius, and I am currently obsessed with him and his album In The Lonely Hour.
Go buy his album and concert tickets now.
The duo has finally returned, and in full force might I add, with their new single ‘Man x Woman’. The duo took a little hiatus to work on solo projects, but I am so glad to hear them back together, because I love this track. Mar sounds as sexy as ever over the smooth Full Crate beat. The two have recently signed on to Island Records, so I assume we will hearing even bigger things from them sooner than later.
Loving everything about this!
because, who doesn’t love an acoustic MNEK track?
MNEK is going to be huge this year, and this is one of the reasons why. He is one of the few with Pure Talent, and I’m pretty much posting this because I am so ready for MNEK to grace us with new music this friday.
Turn it up and zone out.
Roses Gabor gained my attention with her spectacular track titled ‘Stars‘, and while I don’t think this has quite the impact that ‘Stars’ did, this is more on the soulful and smooth side. Roses Gabor sounds sexy over this MNEK produced beat, and we can’t really hate on anything he has done, right? Anyway, just take a listen to this, and if it doesn’t sell you, check out ‘Stars’ because it will.
A little slow to post this one, but as most of you know I have been following this guys career for quite some time now, and a new album is well overdue. Luckily he has graced us with a genius debut track from his second album titled ‘Emotion’.
Maverick sabre has a voice like no other, and his debut album was a smash, if you haven’t heard it I highly recommend you do. ‘Emotion’ brings everything that Sabre is about, a little rap flow mixed with a little soul. I hope he does bigger things the second time around, and I can’t wait for his album!
A little slow to post this one, but since the release of this song it has been on repeat. BANKS has definitely made a name for herself, and this new single ‘Drowning’ is fantastic! The video is very sexy, and dark at the same time. Still patiently awaiting her debut album Goddess which is due out September 9th!
