I didn’t get to listen to Janet Jackson’s new album until recently. Boy, I was missing out. Her song, “Shoulda Known Better” is simply gorgeous. It reminds me faintly of Jackson’s “Every Time”. Soft vocals and a faint 90s/00s vibe. Love it. It’s a hit. Oh, Ms. Jackson, how I never knew I missed you so. I guess I shoulda known better.
And speaking of blast’s from the past, Missy Elliot’s new hit single “WTF (Where They From)” is back to school these kids how it’s done. With puppets, Pharrell, dancing and the creative mind of Missy Elliot, she shows she’s unstoppable. So refreshing to hear her come back.
Also, other music I’m listening to, Calvin Harris featuring HAIM, LP,CHVRCHES, Elle King and Lourde.
I just love the “Pray to God” music video from Calvin Harris feating HAIM. These women are elegant and haunting and I love the nature sets. Awesome video.
LP is back with “Muddy Waters”, love this song. It’s a different but RIGHT departure from her previous light-hearted pop tunes. I hope LP keeps digging deep for inspiration for these soulful songs.
CHVRCHES music video for “Leave a Trace” is colorful and the song took me a while to warm to. It’s different, and that’s good. Different is good.
Elle King has been jumping the iTunes charts with this hit “Ex’s and Ohs”. The lyrics are fun and I wish I had thought of it first.
Lastly, I love Disclosure’s “Magnets” featuring Lorde. It’s a unique music video and I actually like Lorde’s modern dancing in the video. It’s artistic and refreshing to see an artist move their body in their own creative way versus a big choreographed scene.
Tune in again soon for some more hit songs.
