New Music Tuesday: Disclosure, Jason Derulo, Future & More

Disclosure-Holding-On-2015-1200x1200-300x300I’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:

fuckupsomecommasaTwo 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:

Single Review: Ariana Grande x Big Sean, ‘Best Mistake’

Ariana-Grande-ft.-Big-Sean-Right-ThereThis is the third collab between Ariana Grande and Big Sean as the two have previously collaborated on ‘Right There’ and ‘Problem’. This time around it is more interesting being that it’s been rumored that the two are dating. I knew that there was some chemistry between the two when they performed ‘Right There’ at  “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Party”Also with rumors circulating about their romance, an Instagram photo posted on both Ariana’s and Sean’s have indicated something is going on between the two.

As for this new track, ‘Best Mistake’, I like that this is a different direction for Ariana. She sings a lot of R&B fused music, but it’s very pop at the same time. Pop at 21 years old is more intriguing than R&B in this day anyway. The track has a nice vibe and her voice doesn’t annoy me. I just think that she doesn’t show enough emotion. The inflection in her tone is just not there. She sounds great, but it’s just like she’s singing the lyrics from the paper and not really feeling it. I do like the direction of the song. It isn’t horrible.

Ariana’s sophomore album, My Everything, will be in stores/online August 25th.
