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. TINASHE – SLUMBER PARTY

SONG OF THE DAY: JAX JONES x YEARS and YEARS- PLAY

This song gives me maaaajor garage throwback vibes. It reminds me of a lot of Artful Dodger tracks from the early 00s that my friend and I used to blast in her clapped out Citroen Saxo as we drove around thinking we were the shit. I’m not really one for clubbing, but this song makes me want to go out and dance. Though having said … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: JAX JONES x YEARS and YEARS- PLAY

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM WILLS – UNIFY

I remember first seeing Sam Wills a few years ago as a support act at a live gig and promptly downloading his first EP, ‘So Bright’. Not only does he have an incredible voice but his music is so transportive. With every song you really feel as though you’re entering another world and that’s down to the crystal clear production by Wills and Karma Kid. … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM WILLS – UNIFY

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)

SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SPARRO – CLINGWRAP

I’m sure there’s an inspirational quote out there somewhere that says you should do one new thing every day, or something along those lines. Well I think for today’s new thing you should listen to this song. I’m assuming of course you haven’t already and I only make that assumption because it’s an unreleased album track from Sam Sparro’s self-titled debut album released over ten … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: SAM SPARRO – CLINGWRAP

SONG OF THE DAY: MAHALIA – I WISH I MISSED MY EX

Mahalia is a UK born singer, songwriter and actress. She signed her first record deal aged 13 and since then has been nominated for a Brit Award, worked with Rudimental and appeared in the film ‘Brotherhood’ (2016).Her debut album ‘Diary of Me’ (2016) was largely made up of guitar-driven tracks, but since then she has begun experimenting with her sound using influences of trap, soul, … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: MAHALIA – I WISH I MISSED MY EX

SONG OF THE DAY: USHER feat. BEYONCÉ and LIL’ WAYNE – LOVE IN THIS CLUB, PART II

A few months ago I wrote a post about a few Mariah Carey remixes that I thought were better than the original versions, and this remix of Usher’s 2008 single ‘Love In The Club’ is another example of when that happens. It’s not just the addition of Beyoncé that elevates the song, but lyrically it’s far more interesting than the original which is simply just … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: USHER feat. BEYONCÉ and LIL’ WAYNE – LOVE IN THIS CLUB, PART II

COVER OF THE WEEK: ROCK THE BOAT (AALIYAH) – SAM SPARRO

We all know Aaliyah’s 2001 single ‘Rock The Boat’ is a masterpiece. It’s one of the greatest R&B records of the early 00s (and that’s saying something because that period yielded A LOT of great music) so of course anyone attempting to take on the song by way of a cover is doing so bravely.Well, I think Australian singer/songwriter Sam Sparro has created something pretty … Continue reading COVER OF THE WEEK: ROCK THE BOAT (AALIYAH) – SAM SPARRO

SONG OF THE DAY: LUCAS and STEVE feat. BRANDY – I COULD BE WRONG

Brandy’s 1994 debut single ‘I Wanna Be Down’ is given an unexpected twist in this uplifting and feel good dance track which has become a regular on my workout playlist! Created by Dutch production team Lucas and Steve, the pair are quoted as saying: “We’ve been fans of Brandy for so long! Her voice is amazing and it already caught our attention when our parents … Continue reading SONG OF THE DAY: LUCAS and STEVE feat. BRANDY – I COULD BE WRONG
