As Miley’s number 1 hater – Im seriously blown away by this new tune. Miley done good. Seriously bored with the twerking and then ‘Wrecking ball’, this tune has come out of the blue. Miley made the right decision hooking up with Mike WiLL Made It (both at work and in the bedroom) cause she suits the hip hop scene. Her rapping reminds us a little of Kreayshawn‘s Debbie cakes – whiny trailer trash – but it works well with Wiz, Juicy J and Mike WiLL Made It. Miley looks more like a boss and less like a desperate loser in this one. Sadly the tongue does make an appearance….
The video is dedicated to Basketball’s greatest – Michael Jordan – aka #23.
Our favourite man of the moment, Diplo, has produced a track for Tinie Tempah called ‘Trampoline’. The track also features American rapper 2 Chainz. ‘Trampoline’ will be released on August 4th and is the first single from Tempahs second album, entitled ‘Demonstration’. The album should be dropping in September. Enjoy..its Friday!
It’s pretty sad that this year we’ve seen major desperation when it comes to chart success. Established artists are no longer confident to rely on their musical talent – oh no – apparently we need full on naked females girating around on the videos to create a buzz. First off we have Robin Thicke and Pharell with ‘Blurred Lines’ and now ageing Justin Timberlake is taking a leaf out of their book with ‘Tunnel Vision’. Is Justin incapable of producing a record without Timberland there to hold his hand?? #justsaying
The song itself, Tunnel Vision, has the same old formula that all Timberlake songs have: fast/slightly manic background beat, some fast lyrics from JT with a melodic chorus layered over the top – and ofcourse random input from rapper Timberland in the distant background. The song isnt anything special; the best thing about it is the atmospheric synthesizer / organ used in the intro and throughout – definately adds a uniqueness to the track. The video is trying to be too arty in a failed cover up at using fully waxed naked models to project JT’s face onto. I think its time to throw in the towel if the only way you get noticed as an artist is to make your vids visually explicit like this – dont you?
Phoenix Martins has just released the video for her debut single ‘Heart Strings’. The visuals are a beautiful urban glowing nightscene with Martins taking a stroll with a red flare while she sings her floaty dreamlike new tune in her unique style; one we would describe as Lana Del Ray meets Kate Bush with a cool hipster East London vibe. Its a stunning video that fits with the song perfectly and doesn’t distract from her amazing vocals.
The British-Nigerian singer/songwriter Phoenix Martins is set to release her debut single ‘Heartstrings’ on 24th June 2013. She has worked with an array of artists in the studio and on the road including The Noisettes, Fife Dangerfield and Ebony Bones and has featured as part of Damon Albarn’s Africa Express cross-cultural collaborations project.
The singer has also been supported by the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Wonderland, Afropunk, Earmilk etc. The new video is ensuring Phoenix Martins gets the press attention she deserves and this week was premiered on MTV’s The Wrap Up.
