I’ve decided to keep it simple for Tuesday post, although I’m off my blogging schedule, and share some new music. First up, Disclosure. Disclosure is best known for their smash ‘Latch’ featuring Sam Smith and this time around they’re back with a new track titled,’Holding On’ featuring Gregory Porter. I’ve listened to it a few times and I don’t find it as mainstream as ‘Latch,’ but then again not everything needs to be mainstream. Not my fav, but a nice listen. Check it out below:
Two remixes have dropped. The first is that of Ariana Grande’s, ‘One Last Time,’ featuring Fedez. This version was re-released for the Italian Market. As for who Fedez is, he’s a singer/rapper. The other remix is that of Future’s gibberish, ‘F*ck Up Some Commas.’ He’s enlisted the help of Big Sean and THE BOSS Rick Ross. for this one.I still love the song even though it took me a while to decipher what the hell Future was saying. Listen to both tracks below:
Rob Thomas is working on a new album since 2009s,,. The first time I heard Rob Thomas was his smash ‘This Is How a Heart Breaks.’ What could be a super cool song has basic lyrics and melody. Granted that could be catchy, but there’s nothing outstanding about this song. I could hear the music in a commercial or something, but not constantly on the radio waves. Listen below:
Lastly Jason Derulo is on quite a roll as he’s gearing up to release his new album and follow-up to Talk Dirty, This time he’s teamed up with J. Lo for a track titled ‘Try Me.’ Now I’m not in love with this one as much as I am with ‘Want You To Want Me,’ but I could hear this one the radio simply because J.Lo is featured.Everything is 4 drops June 2nd. Listen to the track below:
Just 8 months after the release of his 5th studio album Mastermind, Rick Ross will be releasing Hood Billionaire on November 24th. Check out his album artwork + intro video below:
Chris Brown has finally released a visual for his track ‘New Flame’ featuring Usher and Rick Ross. The video has no storyline and while I would have liked one, I’m not surprised. I also would’ve like Usher & Chris to break out into some dope choreo together, but didn’t get that either.
The video is all white themed. THere’s Chris dancing on water twirling an umbrella with a top hat as girls laid around him. As for his attire he has on this pants/shorts thing which is a bit ridiculous and a super long shirt. Then there’s a scene with him standing against this wall and he ditched the shorts and the hat and added a blazer and a gold chain. Then slide to Usher who’s like on top of this mountain and then he started doing that robotic thing he did in ‘Burn’. Moving on to Rick Ross who had to have his shirt off. He could’ve wore a white shirt or something. Nope there he was sitting down with that infamous chain. Shoot to the desert scene with the all white attire still there. There’s ‘X’ blazing in the background; there’s the flame. There’s a random cameo by Tyga. Then Chris kills it at the end with his choreo.
There was nothing really spectacular about the video. I really watched to see what choreo would be involved. You can’t have a Chris Brown video without some choreo. Again I would’ve liked to see a full out routine from him and Usher. They did a little something at the end, but it could’ve been better.
Overall the dessert scene was very entertaining. I’m a fan of Chris Brown’s choreo.
Check out the video below:
I heard a snippet of this track sometime last week and I didn’t pay much attention to it. After hearing it in its entirety, I love it. I really love that Chris Brown is back to releasing music, well able to release music, because I’m tired of hearing ‘Loyal’. Catchy, infectious song, BUT I could go for another Breezy track. This time around he teams with Usher and Rick Ross. If you haven’t noticed, Chris Brown has a formula. Put his vocals with a rapper and it’s a banger. Put his vocals with another R&B singer and it’s a banger. He can fit in on a track whether it’s his or a feature. His voice just works. I really like this track, I’m just not the biggest fan of Rick Ross. Oh well!
