Sia, receiving a slow burning chart topper with “Cheap Thrills”, has just graced us with another smash. “The greatest” is another self-empowerment track that we are used to hearing from the songstress. While the streaming version features the amazing Kendrick Lamar, the music video does not include him.
The video is a very powerful tribute to the victims in he Orlando shooting as you see them dropping at the end with what looks like bullet holes in the background, with a very eerie silence.
I much prefer the Kendrick version ,which I have included after the jump, but for radio purposes I see why she has released two separate versions. Sia definitely has another hit on her hands with “The Greatest”.
After Ariana delivered a mediocre performance at the VMA’s, she dropped the video for one of my favorite singles off a fantastic album, ‘Side To Side’. The video is what you would expect from Ariana and Nicki, it oozes sex and is filled with a lot of meaningless visuals. It is time these pop-stars give their videos some depth, but I don’t see that happening anytime soon. Enjoy!
BANKS has always been an interest to me with her quirky and soft spoken style. This time around she gives us “Fuck With Myself”, which falls into the category or recently released zero fucks anthems. I’m loving this track, and she even recently released another track “Gemini Feed” which you can peep the video for after the jump!
This track has been a slow and steady banger for me. I really wasn’t a fan for quite some time, seeing as Zayn‘s album was pretty much a flop. The talented producer, Snakehips, has given some life back into his career for me at least. My only problem was that his album was just one blend of a track, there was no story, there was no differences. This gives him some change up in his sound, and I quite actually prefer this.
In other news, MIA has announced a collaboration with him, which I believe could be quite iconic when the time comes seeing as it is her last album. Anyway, enjoy the video for the Snakehips and Zayn collaboration!
Less than 24 hours after the surprise release of her debut single from her album, Mad Love, JoJo gives us the official visuals. The track is going to be huge, it is almost a grown up version of “Leave (Get Out)”, from the start of her career.
I can’t wait to hear Mad Love, because this girl knows exactly what she is doing musically in every way.
I am so here for this.
M.I.A is back, and we couldn’t be more excited!
This track is an explosion of swag over a Skrillex produced beat. M.I.A has always been a little bit controversial and different with her sound. This track follows her rather controversial statements about the Black Lives Matter subject that is very touchy at the moment. That being said, I’d like to focus more on the music because that is what we are about.
This track is everything we need from her, and while her previous effort “Borders” was fantastic, this is the M.I.A we know and love. This comes from her next album, AIM, which I read is supposedly her LAST album ever. That is sad news for music fans everywhere, but we hope that she goes out with a bang and this is a fantastic start!
If you don’t know MNEK by now, you are seriously missing out. He recently gave us his newest banger, “At Night”, and now he gives us the visuals that accompany the song. I really have nothing else to say about this track because I have loved everything that MNEK has put out, and this is no exception. So just enjoy it, and educate yourself on this talent if you haven’t already!
