After giving this song a couple of listens upon its listen, I realized that while it is catchy, it will do nothing for their career. It blends right in there with The Wanted and OneDirection, and if you haven’t heard of Union J thats exactly who you will mistake the song for. I still support them because I still believe that the R&B direction would do wonders for them, but if their team doesn’t change it up, Union J will be a thing of the past
Rudimental, for those who don’t know, has been storming the UK charts for quite some time now. His previous efforts include ‘Feel The Love‘, ‘Not Giving In‘ and one of my favorites, ‘Spoons‘, which also features the soulful MNEK. ‘Baby’ with the addition of Sinead Harnett, is a big track to come from Rudimental, just like previous tracks. This track is filled with dance floor vibes all the way, with the addition of power house vocals from Sinead, this track will definitely make a huge impact on the charts. As big as this track is, the video is just as fun to watch. I believe that Rudimental’s album could be quite big musically, and I can’t wait to hear it!
Definitely one of my favorite new comers this past year has been the soulful, raw, Vince Kidd. He hooked me with his release of ‘Taboo’, and after gaining a heap of success on The Voice UK, he has released a sick song for us to enjoy. ‘The Zoo’ definitely sounds like a Kidd masterpiece, from the lyrics to the costumes throughout the video. You can easily tell he had a hand in all aspects of this video, and well the song is freaking fantastic. I hope this guy gets so much success, because he really deserves it!
The beautiful miss JoJo is back with visuals from her track ‘Andre’ off her mixtape Agape, which if you haven’t checked it out your missing out. Anyway, the video is pretty simple, and JoJo looks probably the best she has ever looked in life and all this video makes me wish is that my name was Andre. I seriously hope for an album from this talent VERY soon, because the world is missing out if she doesn’t come out with one soon!
Love me some JoJo!
Robin Thicke attempts to sex it up in his new video for his upcoming single ‘Blurred Lines’. This song is actually quite good, compared to Thicke’s previous attempts at albums, the beat is a classic Pharrell sounding beat and Thicke sounds quite amazing on it. I could have done without the T.I feature and the annoying hashtag that are constantly in your face, but it doesn’t hurt the track musically. It definitely sounds like ‘Wanna Love You’ 2.0, which is never a bad thing since that song was a smash. I’m not sure how Thicke will do right now in the market since he picked the worst year to make a comeback, seeing as King Justin is back in the business, but I do love this song.
The best of luck Robin!
Absolutely Genius, that is all that needs to be said
The original Harlem Shake has blown up in the last 2 weeks, and of course one of the most talked about rappers has thrown out a remix for us. Azealia Banks, no doubt, fits perfectly over this beat because she first blew up with “212″, so this is naturally where she belongs. The lyrics are controversial just like her, and I absolutely love this song. As for her original material, her first single “Young Rapunzel” is supposed to be dropping sometime soon. Enjoy this for now, because I believe when she drops her first official single, she will begin her world domination.
I don’t care about anything else in life.
This is probably one of my favorite cuts from her Unapologetic album, and now it seems it’s getting single treatment. The video is nothing special, but it does have Rihanna in a bathtub for the whole time, which is never a bad thing. Other than that, not much is going on, still a great song though, Mikky Eikko’s vocals are amazing, and they both sounded great at the Grammys.
I already stated my opinion on how freaking amazing this song was in a previous post, and after viewing the video I believe this song is just even more amazing as ever. James Blake is definitely a force in the business, and I fully believe his next album is going to be perfection!
