Tyga, Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne – Senile

Posted By elbroide in Hip-Hop

The Young Money crew are back with Young Money: Rise of an Empire – their second compilation. On the record Tyga, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne teamed up for a track called ‘Senile’. The track is one of the only decent tracks on the record. It’s hip-hop at it’s finest. Each rapper delivers a fantastic verse. The production is hot as well. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but I did find myself bopping my head listening to this.

Favourite lyric: Like Christina got a Milian.

Tiësto – Wasted (Feat. Matthew Koma)

Posted By elbroide in EDM, Pop

Dutch DJ Tiësto did really well with his previous single ‘Red Light’ and has teamed up with American singer-songwriter Matthew Koma for his new single off his upcoming fifth album. The single, titled ‘Wasted’, sees Tiësto go back to his pop routes. It has a great pop chant, a catchy chorus and, naturally, a great production. I like the new pop route he is going but I think his die hard fans will definitely be like ‘what the fuck?’. It’s great to see how well Matthew is doing in the EDM world as well. I think this will be big.

Favourite lyric: I like us better when we’re wasted.

INNA – Cola Song (Feat. J Balvin)

Posted By elbroide in Pop

My Romanian songstress is back! INNA has just inked a new deal with Warner Music and will release her upcoming album LatINNA later in the year. In the meantime, however, she has teamed up with J Balvin for her new single ‘Cola Song’. I’m usually a huge INNA fan, but I don’t know how I feel about the track just yet. The lyrics are so cringe-worthy and really ruin the track but then, as with every single INNA track, the production is so hot and you can’t get but want to get up and dance! I love the Spanish colab on the track and the saxophone in the track but I hope the next single will be a big step up.

Favourite lyric: Okay, let’s party say Ole!

Lana Del Rey – West Coast

Posted By elbroide in Pop

She’s finally come out from hibernation. American vocalist Lana Del Rey premirerd her debut single “West Coast” off her upcoming record ‘Ultraviolence’ which is due for release in just over 2 weeks. I absolutely love this song! Lana’s vocals are effortless and I enjoy just how smooth the track is. Again, Lana releases something incredibly unique and out of the box while still being catchy. The way the chorus slows down in tempo is genius as well. It seems Lana has worked hard on her new material and I think it’ll definitely pay off for her.

Favourite lyric: You’ve got the music in you, don’t you?

Jason Derulo – Wiggle (Feat. Snoop Dogg)

Posted By elbroide in Hip-Hop, Pop

Jason Derulo has done so well with his latest album ‘Tattoos’ but as the album wasn’t released in the US, the R&B crooner repacked the album, added some new ones and releases ‘Talk Dirty’ the album tomorrow. The follow-up to ‘Talk Dirty’ that side of the world will be the Snoop Dogg assisted ‘Wiggle’. I like the western vibe the track starts off but a deep base quickly drops reminding me a lot of ‘Talk Dirty’. I think it’s a great single to release in the United States at the moment, especially after the success of Talk Dirty. The track is nothing spectacular, but I look forward to hearing more of this.

Favourite lyric: If I take pictures while you do your dance, I can make you famous on Instagram.

Darin – Mamma Mia (Feat. Phophet of 7lions)

Posted By elbroide in Pop

Darin is back!!! I’ve never been one to hide this, but Sweden’s sweetheart Darin has always been my favourite male singer. The star is readying the release of his next album and has teamed up with Prophet of 7lions for his highly anticipated comeback single ‘Mamma Mia’ and it’s his best work in a long time! The track is insanely catchy and although has the typical pop sound, there are many different genres and sounds infused into the track. Darin’s vocals are absolutely on point and the songwriting is fantastic as well. I must be honest and say I’ve never heard of Prophet of 7lions before, but he did a decent job on the track. This is already my new jam!

Favourite lyric: I can’t you out of my skin, like a drug, we’re falling way deeper than love.

Chad Saaiman – Mi Amor

Posted By elbroide in Pop, R&B, South African

Chad Saaiman is back with a bang as he comes out of hiding and releases his brand new single ‘Mi Amor’. The track is something different from the crooner but I love it! Written by Saaiman with the help of Keeno Lee & Mario Ogle, the track starts off with heavy electronic sounds before Chad’s soothing vocals hit you with a bang. I think there are so many good vocalists in the country and Chad always manages to stay a top of his game – especially with this song. I absolutely love the chorus, but the verses are fantastic as well. Really impressed, Chad!

Favourite lyric: Slowly, care free, we let go…

Jeremy Loops – Down South (Feat. Motheo Moleko)

Posted By elbroide in Indie, Pop, South African

Local muso Jeremy Loops finally released his long awaited debut album ‘Trading Change’ a few weeks ago and he has confirmed that ‘Down South’ featuring Motheo Moleko will serve as the next single off the record. The track is my favourite off the album. It starts off with kids chanting and it instantly captures your attention. The rap by Motheo is also great and it is amazing to see their verses just click. As with every JL song, the instrumentals are amazeballs. I reckon this is going to be one of the biggest local smashers of the year.

Favourite lyric: Time it waits for no one it took me 26 years to feel this something and I’ll be damned if I let it slip away.

Pitbull – We Are One (Ole Ola) [Feat. Jennifer Lopez & Claudia Leitte]

Posted By elbroide in Latin, Pop

New J.Lo music always makes me happy and this time, we have the official theme song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The track features Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte and is a great follow-up to Shakira’s smash hit ‘Waka Waka’. The track has some incredible instrumentals and although doesn’t come close to the epicness that was ‘Waka Waka’, I think people around the world will fall in love with the song. I love that Claudia sang in Portuguese and makes the song authentic. It doesn’t blow me away on first listen, but to be honest, neither did ‘Waka Waka’ on first listen.

Favourite lyric: Two sides, one fight and a million eyes!

Ed Sheeran – SING

Posted By elbroide in Funk, Pop

Finally! British singer Ed Sheeran has finally premiered his highly anticipated comeback single ‘SING’! The track will serve as the official debut single off his second studio album ‘x’ or ‘multiply’. The track has a great little funk sound to it which is incredibly on trend right now. Ed sings super quickly on the track which I’m not loving so much but the chorus is awesome! The track was produced by megastar Pharrell and I think it’s a great way for Ed to reintroduce his new material. Exited to see what else he releases.

Favourite lyric: I already know she’s a keeper just from this one small act of kindness.
