Beyoncé – Pretty Hurts

Posted By elbroide in Pop

Queen B is still killing it! Her latest single Partition has just been playlisten on radio stations around the country and the star has chosen her latest album’s opener, Pretty Hurts, as the fourth official single. The track is super strong and I always knew it was going to be a single. Bey’s vocals are so incredible on the track and she tears the chorus apart! The track is the perfect pop follow-up to the smash that was ‘XO’. It’s interesting that Rihanna’s team held onto this Sia-written track for eight months before Beyonce finally got the rights to record it. Looking forward to seeing how well this does.

Favourite lyric: It’s the soul that needs the surgery

Lily Allen – Sheezus

Posted By elbroide in Pop

Lily Allen’s highly anticipated third studio album ‘Sheezus’ will be released in about two weeks and the British babe has confirmed that the album’s title track will serve as the fourth single off the record. The track speaks about how Lily wants to be the Queen Bee and again, it’s another hilarious track from her. I love how she mentions some of the biggest female singers in the game at the moment. The track isn’t mind-blowing, but it’s definitely got that feel-good feeling. I’m hoping for some better tracks on the album though…

Favourite lyric: Periods. We all get periods. Once a month that’s what the theory is.

Avicii – Lay Me Down (Feat. Adam Lambert)

Posted By elbroide in EDM, Pop

Avicii has dropped some major beats over the past year and his debut album ‘True’ has done incredibly well! As his new single ‘Addicted To You’ begins to get a little momentum, the DJ has teamed up with Adam Lambert for his new single ‘Lay Me Down’. The track starts off with lovely little guitar riffs before heading off into a huge chorus. I love this track because it’s something so different for Adam and something quite tame for Avicii. The track is incredibly radio friendly and it seems to have all the ingredients to make this a huge hit.

Favourite lyric: Show me I’m the one, tell me I’m the one that you need.

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…
