We’re loving this new song by Ciara. There’s something effortless and unpretentious about it. It references the 90’s track, My Boo by Ghostdown DJ’s, which became an often quoted song (Pitbull and Maria Carey for instance).
Chris Brown is the world’s biggest bad boy. Ask any Rihanna fan. It makes it really difficult to hate him though, when he releases such a great pop song, which gives Justin Timberlake a run for his “I am the new Michael Jackson” campaign. Fine China is a smooth, groovy and delicious track, we wish more pop music would sound like that in 2013.
So Chris Brown might be a scumbag, but we have to give him that – he is a great musician, dancer and singer.
Justin Timberlake is celebrating his return to the music business with The 20/20 Experience, his first studio album in 7 years. We’re happy to join the party, and paste here his new video for Mirrors, one of the fine cuts on the album. Check it out, and grab the album on iMesh
Azealia Banks is destined to be a big name in 2012. This song was doing the blogs rounds last year, but will blow up this year with Ms. Banks getting signed to a major label and getting featured on the Skins tv series. Don’t get left behind, make sure you get on board the Azealia train now…
We love Cee Lo! We seriously do. Everything he touches and does has a certain charm that we don’t see around a lot in today’s manufactured pop sphere. So when he releases a new track from his latest album: The Lady Killer, we happily stand by him and shout: “Team Cee Lo!”
And if you haven’t done so yet, it’s never too late to grab the album from iMesh
Beyonce is getting all, like, Film Noir on us with this 50’s style black & white new video. Although it’s pretty safe to say that back in the 50’s, nobody really danced the way Beyonce does here, and that even if they did, they would have probably been hospitalized in a mental institution. We’ve come a long way, haven’t we? Anyway, Dance For You is a new track that appears on the Deluxe edition of her latest album, 4, which just came out this week. Get it on iMesh.
We have missed Robin Thicke – the soulful crooner who seems to deserve greater success than he has enjoyed so far. Perhaps his new album Love After War will change all that and make Robin the superstar he should be.
Watch this new video for the title track, and immerse yourself in the lush production and Robin’s silky voice.
Patrick Stump caught your attention for the first time as lead singer of pop punk trio, Fall Out Boy. Since the band is on an indefinite break, it’s time for Stump to step out as a solo artist. His new album, Soul Punk, surely presents him more as a soul/r’n’b crooner than as punk.
This City sounds a lot like Hall and Oates, Starship, and other blue-eyed 80’s soul legends. It also features Lupe Fiasco, which is generally always a good thing.
And while we’re at it, we’ve just published on iMesh a new playlist of songs, selected by Patrick Stump. check it out!
A new Beyonce video is always a good reason for a party, let alone a new post on our blog. This is Countdown, a dazzling combination of styles and sounds and proof that pop in 2011 can still be fun, challenging, full of surprises and yet insanely catchy.
And don’t forget, her album 4 is still available for download on iMesh
