Artist Promo: Mark Morrison ft. Crooked I & Shonie - N.A.N.G.2.0

I'm a little late posting this but the British R&B king Mark Morrison has released a new single entitled 'N.A.N.G. 2.0' (N**** Ain't No Good) featuring Slaughterhouse rapper Crooked I and Slip-n-Slide/Def Jam singer Shonie.

The hot track addresses dead beat boyfriends that beat their girlfriends and treat them poorly.  The song comes from a very real place since Mark Morrison was inspired by his cousin who was in an abusive relationship and had to be housed by UK national charity REFUGE
. 'N.A.N.G.2.0' will be released digitally worldwide on October 1st, 2013, which
is also National Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) in the US. Morrison will also be releasing his third studio album I Am What I Am next year.

Artist Promo: We've Got Lots Of Love For You "From The Start"

If you like the nostalgia pop of Lana Del Rey then you'll probably enjoy singer songwriter Jessica Fleischer AKA Lots Of Love's music. Unlike Lana, Lots Of Love's vintage vibe is more upbeat compared to the darker/depressing tones Lana takes on. That's not to say that Lots Of Love's music doesn't have an air of mystery and intrigue to it like many of her inspirations of the 50's and 60's such as Connie Francis and The Crystals.






















 Lots Of Love will be releasing her debut album From The Start  on Tuesday, August 27th, which she worked on with the frontman of the band Rooney, Robert Schwartzman. The 10 track albums lead single also titled, 'From The Start' is about an unrequited love Jessica experienced from a health food store employee in Los Angeles, which you can read more about via the Huffingtonpost.


(Soundcloud Player Direct Link: HERE)

Lots Of Love also released an appropriately retro and dreamy looking video for her album single 'Come To Life', which you can watch below.



 From The Start Tracklist

01. Sitting In A Box
02. From The Start
03. It's So Hard
04. I Think It's Called Love
05. Come To Life
06. It's Happening
07. Boys Men
08. Mister Mystery
09. When I See You
10. Ghosts Are Coming

You can stream her debut album From The Start via her Website and you can also connect with Lots O Love through Twitter, Facebook, SoundCloud, Myspace, and Instagram. You can also purchase her music on iTunes.

When I first heard Chris Brown's 'Love More' single live on the BET Awards 2013 I thought the song sounded all over the place. After watching the music video today and hearing it in HQ studio audio I ended up liking the song. I especially enjoy Nicki Minaj's verse which made me chuckle.

10th Anniversary of The Great Blackout

10 years ago (August 14th 2013) The biggest blackout in North American history hit on this very day. So what were you doing and where were you when the power went out? I was on my way to the mall when I noticed the traffic lights were no longer working so I kept heading to the mall only to be told by people at the door that it was closed until further notice.

Anyway this is a music blog so I used the whole blackout anniversary as an  excuse to post singer, Mashonda's song for her debut single 'Blackout'.
It was that or a post about Britney Spears amazing album of the same name.

New Music: Lady Gaga - Applause

As the "Mother Monster", Lady Gaga gains all her sustenance from her little monsters adoration or that's at least what one would think after listening to her new electronic 80's-esque dance single 'Applause', which is the first single off of ARTPOP (November 11th 2013). Check it out below.



The Chorus is SOOOO addictive!

New Music: Katy Perry - Roar

Katy Perry has put all the colourful and flamboyant wigs behind her now and has taken on a more how do you say "indie" look for her new album Prism.

Her first Prism offering entitled 'Roar' is an inspiring mid-tempo song that is definitely not what I was expecting. I think my mind and heart will always live in the Teenage Dream era.

That's not to say that I hate 'Roar' but in all honesty it seems a little dull in comparison to the garishly bright and light heart pop of  Teenage Dream.

New Music: Download Singer Nylo's New Project "Indigo Summer"

(image source: hypetrak.com

There's a new singer on the block and her name is Nylo. The Los Angeles based singers ethereal and dreamy music has been surfacing on the web for a awhile now and after listening to recent song from an artist named  Blackbear who featured her on his track 'Just Friends' I decided it was time to do a little research.

I soon found out that Nylo had compiled an EP entitled Indigo Summer, which was released  last month and that she had also released a debut EP entitled, Memories Speak (click title to download) last year.

Indigo Summer consist of  7 tracks, which features Gilbere Forte on the opening track 'Nobody Has To Know' and even has an interesting and great cover of Robin Thicke's ever-present summer jam 'Blurred Lines'. The project also features production from major producers like Tricky Stewart, Fisticuffs, Soundz, and 55 Billion. Stream and download (for free) Indigo Summer via SoundCloud.




Indigo Summer TrackList


01. Nobody Has To Know Ft. Gilbere Forte (Prod. by Tricky Stewart)
02. Fool Me Once (Prod. by Soundz)
03. Breakfast At Tiffany's (Prod. by Boogie, Cash & Nylo; Guitar: BlackBear)
04. Cocaine Hearts (Prod. by Fisticuffs, extra prod. Nylo)
05. Take It Back (Prod. by 55 Billion & Nylo)

New Music: Busta Rhymes ft. Vybz Kartel, Ne-Yo, T.I., Jeremih & French Montana - #TwerkIt Remix

According to Busta Rhymes one remix is not enough! After remixing his amazing song '#TwerkIt' with rap queen supreme Nicki Minaj, he's decided to overkill the track by remixing it with even more people.

The problem with this remix in particular is the addition of Jeremiah and Ne-Yo. These R&B sing-song raps sounded so stupid and the only person that added anything to this song was Vybz Kartel because T.I. and especially French Montana were useless in my opinion.




I stick to the Nicki Minaj remix thank you.
