Peanuts

Not quite sure why Coldplay are name checking the famous cartoon character as the title of their latest single, but classic comics aside, Charlie Brown is vintage Coldplay – soaring melody over lush guitars and Chris Martin’s tortured angel-like voice. Check out the video, and head over to iMesh, to download the entire album, Mylo Xyloto.

So stupid it’s genius

Opening 2012 with a guest slot at Madonna’s Super Bowl half time show, and this bold statement of a song, Nicki Minaj is going from strength to strength. The song, Stupid Hoe, is real heavy on the bass, while showing off Nicki’s dexterous flow. The song may be irritating at first, true, but becomes catchy and grows bigger in every repeated listening.

Lady Madonna

Every new song by Madonna is a cause for the world of pop to stop its breath and watch in awe.  Over 30 years in the business, and Madonna still, well, rules, and yes, we know, Lady Gaga, blah blah, etc.

For her new track, Madonna recruits spring chickens M.I.A and Nicki Minaj to give her a bit of street cred and a small injection of young blood. Watch out for her album, MDNA, which will drop in 2012. And of course, you surely saw her incredible Super Bowl half time show, right?

Mos Dev

Newcomer Dev is taking her stab at popstardome, big synth-electro-pop hooks, auto-tuned vocals and the whole shebang. Her album is still a bit far off with a March release date, but she just released the video for Dancing Shoes, so we won’t have to bite our fingernails while waiting.

Rihanna shot the Sherif. She might have also shot his deputy

Rihanna doesn’t have to do much to drop men down.  She can simply walk down a street, and watch them drop like flies at her feet.  However, she insisted on releasing this song and video describing in a faux-Jamaican slant how she shot a man down. The fast reggae beat gives her story more cred…

The empire strikes back

The first single from Beyoncé’s new album was a somewhat disputable choice. The new track, however, Best Thing I Never Had, is a classic Beyoncé – soulful yet contemporary, women- empowering yet sensitive and smart, and her majesty is firing on all of her vocal cylinders. And as if that’s not enough, the video features Beyoncé wearing a lingerie outfit and a princess Leia hairdo.
