SONG OF THE DAY: BRITNEY SPEARS feat. TINASHE – SLUMBER PARTY

This song was a moderate success but I do think it should have done better. ‘Glory’ was Britney’s best album since ‘Blackout’ and had a number of songs that could and should have done well on the charts, including this one. The official video is expensive looking and engaging which gives it great replay value – essential in this era of streaming where every play … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: BRITNEY SPEARS feat.

P!NK RELEASES FORMULAIC NEW SONG – ‘WALK ME HOME’

Hours ago, P!nk released the first single from her upcoming album, ‘Hurts 2B Human’ (rumoured for an April release). ‘Walk Me Home’ features Nate Reuss on writing credits who previously collaborated with P!nk on the 2013 smash hit single ‘Just Give Me a Reason’. OK. I love P!nk, let me just say that. This is a great song if you look at it in isolation … Continue reading P!NK RELEASES FORMULAIC NEW SONG – ‘WALK ME HOME’

SONG OF THE DAY: JANET JACKSON – NO SLEEEP

In May 2015, Janet Jackson surprised everyone by announcing she was set to release new music and head out on a world tour. The then-untitled album would be her first in seven years and would satisfy fans who at that point had no idea whether she would ever make music again. The star had been M.I.A. for a few of years, rumoured to be living … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JANET JACKSON – NO SLEEEP

SONG OF THE DAY: JENNIFER LOPEZ – EXPERTEASE (READY SET GO)

We all know J.Lo has put out a number of thumping dance tracks during her near-twenty year music career, but for me, some of my favourite songs by her are the mid-tempos. This particular mid-tempo was co-written by Sia and when that chorus kicks in there’s no denying her involvement. In fact, during the chorus you can hear Sia’s vocals more clearly than Jennifer’s, though … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JENNIFER LOPEZ – EXPERTEASE (READY SET GO)

INDIA ARIE RELEASES NEW ALBUM ‘WORTHY’

After waiting patiently for six years for a new full-length album from India Arie, her fans rejoiced today as she unleashed ‘Worthy’, her 7th album. Preceded by single ‘That Magic’, the set boasts 13 songs all of which feature India’s signature messages of love, hope, humanitarianism and compassion. Two years ago, the singer released her own line of apparel and merchandise with every item bearing … Continue reading INDIA ARIE RELEASES NEW ALBUM ‘WORTHY’

SONG OF THE DAY: ARIANA GRANDE – BETTER OFF

Last week, Ariana Grande released her fifth studio album, ‘Thank U, Next’. The release comes just six months after ‘Sweetener’, her chart-topping fourth album. The title ‘Thank U, Next’ would suggest the 25 year old is more than ready to move on from the previous project (and ex-finacĂ© Pete Davidson), although bizarrely she is set to embark on her six month long ‘Sweetener World Tour’ … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: ARIANA GRANDE – BETTER OFF

SONG OF THE DAY: MICHAEL JACKSON – CAN’T LET HER GET AWAY

I think ‘Dangerous’ might just be my favourite Michael Jackson album. It houses my all-time favourite MJ song which is ‘Remember The Time’, plus so many other great songs (but yes, one or two sickly sweet ballads). In particular I love ‘Can’t Let Her Get Away’. There’s something about the chord progression in the verses that is so satisfying, in fact even more so than … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MICHAEL JACKSON – CAN’T LET HER GET AWAY
