Justin Timberlake released the video for his latest single, Mirrors - a beautiful ode to his grandparents, who have been married for an ungodly 63 years. The song is the second single off his album The 20/20 Experience (which, in it’s opening week, sold a monstrous 968,000 copies).
The video’s cute and I’m sure it’ll tug at all the emotional heartstrings for all you sensitive Sallys out there but can we please highlight how unbelievably flawless the last 3 minutes are? Well, musically, because the dancing part is pretty awkward.
The whole song is great, but the last 3 minutes make me want to jump out the window and find the Holy Ghost. Someone on twitter once said that the last 3 minutes of this song was unnecessary and I almost jumped through my computer just to slap him/her/it in the face. Don’t ever say that shit around me.
Pitbull released the video for his latest smash “Feel This Moment” featuring Christina Aguilera, which is off his album Global Warming.
I seriously can’t deal with RCA allowing such a boring snoozefest tour video for this, especially when the song is doing pretty well.
Fresh off the success off his Britney collab with Scream & Shout, will.i.am is trying to recreate that same success with another superstar collaboration - this time with pop wunderkind Justin Bieber - with his new single, “#thatPower,” the forth off will.i.am’s upcoming album #willpower. (Too old for all these hashtags, will.i.am….)
I actually like this better than Scream & Shout (surprise, surprise) but only for the Bieber chorus. will.i.am’s vocal parts are so ridiculously useless. I’m sure this will slay radio though, as it’s set to officially effect US radio today (3/26) so we’ll see if will.i.am can keep his success rolling.
Won’t do much for record sales though…
HEY YA’LL. I’m back.
Allow me to explain myself….
So, these past few weeks my whole entire spirit has been taken over actually reality (school, work, life, mercury retrograde, etc) that I barely had time to turn my computer, nonetheless, update this blog. Other than the big news (JT, Beyonce, Kenya Moore’s latest video smash), I currently am just as out of the loop as this blog is.
That will all be rectified tonight for I am on spring break! I’ll spend this evening updating this blog with all the old news I missed (and maybe that you missed) and, of course, every post will be laden with my nonsense opinions about the wins and absolute messes that intertwine pop music.
spring break forever~~~
Carly Rae Jepsen is trying to escape out of the “Call Me Maybe” one-hit-wonder cloud that hangs over her head with her latest single “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” off her
flawless pop album This Kiss.
I love the style of the video and I like the song in general but I’m sure if this will smash for Carly. If this doesn’t slay for Carly on the charts, her album still slays in my heart.
Disregarding the low album sales she received for her The Spirit Indestructible album, Nelly Furtado continues to release new videos and singles from the effort - this time, she unleashes a video for her latest single “Bucket List.” The video finds five friends exploring the streets of New York City and ultimately finding themselves with each other.
I’m glad Nelly didn’t let the low album sales deter her from promoting this album since this track is my personal favorite from the album and the video goes along great with it. Such a solid tune. Should have been her first single, honestly.
Riding off all the exposure her stint on The X Factor gave her, Demi Lovato has smartly released a brand new single titled Heart Attack, which is the lead single off her upcoming album.
She hasn’t released any other information about her new album, but I’m sure her fans are already at the edge of their seats as the track is currently sitting pretty on the top of the iTunes chart and is getting early healthy radio airplay. Could be a smash on her hands.
Attempting to conquer the dance single charts, Afrojack has released a new single called “As Your Friend” featuring Chris Brown, which will appear on his upcoming, currently untitled, debut album.
A bit weak, but I’m sure this’ll pop off somewhere. Probably your local club.
Chris Brown gets all retrospective in his video for a new song titled “Home,” where we chronicle the life of richer-than-all-of-us Breezy, while he sings about missing his past. Alright, sir…
The video’s cute, the song’s trash. Hopefully this skips an album…
Odd Future member Tyler, the Creator has unleashed the first track off his upcoming album Wolf (Out April 2nd) titled “Domo 23” where, in the video, he plays a mop-headed wrestle named Fookie Bookie that battles fellow Odd Future member Domo Genesis. After the video, we’re treated to a preview of another (superior sounding) new Tyler track titled “Bimmer” featuring Frank Ocean.
You remind me of my Bimmer…
