New Music: Katy B. and Madonna

Hello Music Fans!

Lately I’ve been listening to Katy B.’s “Still”. A beautiful song and I’m upset she isn’t more popular in the U.S. What’s going on? She has a great look, voice and music! “Still” is a beautiful ballad.

Also, today Madonna released 3 more songs from her upcoming Rebel Heart album which is set to release in March. I’m loving “Hold Tight” out of the three (Joan of Arc and Iconic). The song gets interesting by the chorus.

Hope you enjoy the songs!

New Music to Check out: Aronchupa

Hey Everyone!

This is the latest track I’ve been listening to. This one’s a banger.

House meets classic French music, this Moulin Rouge meets modern day dance it a hit. It’s already climbing up the Vevo charts and I love working out to this song.

The music video is fun too. My only gripe is that the song is short! Need to find a long remix of this song. Enjoy the video!

Summer of Paradise: La Roux and Tiesto’s new albums

Hello Everybody!

La Roux Trouble in Paradise album cover

La Roux – Trouble in Paradise 

Some cool music has been released lately, just in time for the hot weather to start rolling in. Funny how the two albums I’m talking about today both have “Paradise” in the title. Seriously, I didn’t plan it! Haha.

I’ve been anticipating La Roux’s album release of “Trouble in Paradise” on July 22, 2014, but for now, you can download some of her singles. I recommend “Let Me Down Gently”. For fans of La Roux, you’re used to the up-tempo “BulletProof” and “In for the Kill”, and upon first hearing “Let Me Down Gently” and was annoyed that it wasn’t more upbeat. But I kept listening to it, and you know what? It totally grew on me and I think La Roux does a great job mixing 80s synths and modern pop for a perfect blend of music.

Check out the music video here:

In the music video, it’s pretty toned down with La Roux singing to the camera and a gorgeous landscape later on in the music video. The song speak for itself.

Tiesto - A Town Called Paradise

Tiesto – A Town Called Paradise

Tiesto is has also released “A Town Called Paradise” which is available now on iTunes. It’s a great album, I’d give it 4 out of 5 stars for sure. Some awesome banging tracks on there. There really isn’t one song on the album that ISN’T catchy. But the thing is, I LOVE pop music, I love catchy stuff, but just because a song is catchy doesn’t mean I’ll automatically like it, songs like “Let’s Go” with Icona Pop… yeah, sure, it’s ok… but I’m kind of not so thrilled with it. I think the best banger out of the album is “Wasted” and after that “Light Years Away”.

Check out “Wasted” here:

I really don’t care for the music video at all. Seriously, *yawn* they should have just had people partying at a festival with cool lights or something. But listen to the song, it’s awesome.

What do you think of Tiesto’s new album? Excited for the new La Roux album?

Katy B “Crying for No Reason”

I like to think I have great taste in Pop music, a lot of music I like tends to get popular later on (which I intend on writing a blog of all my correct assumptions on songs I liked that later became hits), so I would like to call out Katy B as another great pop singer to look out for.

At first I wasn’t sure what her voice reminded me of, and then it hit me, Rihanna. She’s a red-headed Rihanna. It’s not what you expect out of this sweet looking girl, and she’s definitely not a “Good Girl Gone Bad” at all. No, she just has a soulful, heart-string pulling quality to her voice, full of soul. This recent single that debuted at the end of 2013 is such a refreshing song.

It’s a ballad, and talks about dealing with the repercussions of not dealing with your emotions. I love this song and have been listening to it a lot over the months.

Check it out and let me know what you think. Unfortunately, out of the other songs I’ve listened to from Katy B, I have not found one nearly as catchy and interesting, so I think her success really depends on future follow-up hits and not past ones. Would love to see this girl become more mainstream.

Frozen’s “Let It Go” in 25 Languages

Disney’s “Frozen” has become the highest grossing animated film of all time taking over $1.072 billion at the box office.

I loved the movie and the hit song, “Let It Go” sung by the talented Idina Menzel. I loved her in Rent, so I was glad to see her unique voice crossover from Broadway into Disney.

Disney has released a video of the  25  multi-language singers who sang “Let It Go” for the film. Here you can see behind-the-scenes in this montage and it’s really amazing to see! Just fascinated with seeing all these different languages and singers convey the same meaning. I don’t even know all of these languages! Check it out!
