Music Video: Fefe Dobson - Legacy

Canadian pop rocker Fefe Dobson, preimered her creative video for her new single 'Legacy' a few days ago.

The music video starts with Fefe being taken to her room in a mental hospital as she puts on her best Marilyn Munro impression. From there on she impersonates other deceased pop icons such as Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, and Michael Jackson.



P.S. Her fiance rapper, Yelawolf makes an appearance in the video as well.

New Music: Lady Gaga - Venus

Lady Gaga has released her the full studio audio for 'Venus' off of her upcoming ARTPOP album (November 11th).

The new 80's-espue outer space themed  track is like most of Gaga's music, which means its catchy but the lyrics tend to be campy and nonsensical.

Still Lady Gaga's 'Venus' gets a thumbs up from me and I can appreciate the fact that Gaga writes her own lyrics and music unlike most of her contemporaries who need six writers to write a hit record.

Artist Promo: Ayah Marar - Beg Borrow Steal

If you're a fan of Calvin Harris' music then you've most likely heard his 2013 single 'Thinking About You' featuring Ayah Marar. If you're like me then you were probably introduced to the British Jordanian vocalist via Calvin Harris but if your really knowledgeable about the music world then you've probably heard about her before Calvin. Before featuring on 'Thinking About You', Ayah had released her own album entitled The Real (available on iTunes now), which features her new single 'Beg Borrow Steal'. Check out the video below.







You can purchase 'Beg Borrow Steal' on iTunes now and you can connect with her via her official VEVO page.

Blog Update: Just When I Was Getting Into The Swing Of Things Again

Apparently most of my visits seem to be from spam/bot sites. God just when you think people actually reading what you write you find out its some stupid bot spammer and not an actual reader. Whatever! This totally pisses me off!

I'm going to ditch Google blogs when I have the time and move onto a better blog hosting site where I can actually make some money and gain real readers and traffic.

New Music: Jessie Ware & Julio Bahmore - Peppermint

British singer/songwriter Jessie Ware teams up with producer Julio Bashmore to release a new song called 'Peppermint', which is a re-make of 90's house track 'I'm Hot For You' by Lil' Louis. Julio put a more modern spin to the production but its essentially the same lovable and dance worthy club song. Check it out below.
 



BONUS: Listen to the original 'I'm Hot For You' by Lil Louis below



I was never really sure of the artist that created the original 'I'm Hot For You' song so you can read YouTube user Phil H's comment below, which explains how the song came into existence

"This track has been produced by The Stickmen (from Toronto), this has nothing to do with Chris Sheppard. This track samples the 1989 Italian house classic, "Lee Lewis - Atmosphere (Deep Version)" produced by two Italian guys with collaboration of Lil Louis. Vocals are sampled from Karen Young - Hot Shot and Tony Lee - Reach Up."
Pretty convoluted eh?

New Music: Miley Cyrus ft. Britney Spears - SMS (Bangerz)

Seeing two female singers on one track is like finding a four leaf clover. Its extremely rare to to see two top female vocalist on one song together compared to their male contemporaries who seem more willing to duet but every year at least one major song with two top tier female acts is released and so far 2013 can boast about having Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears 'SMS (Bangerz)'The Mike WiLL Made It  produced, Salt N Pepa 'Push It' sampled track appears on Miley's latest and  surprisingly good album Bangerz (October 4rth 2013). Check out the sultry duet below.



Here's hoping that Miley releases 'SMS (Bangerz)' (or 'Rooting For My Baby') as her next single so it can get all the single treatment it deserves because in my opinion this song is undeniably hot.

BONUS: Check out Miley's slow burner 'Rooting For My Baby' below.

Music News: We Finally Get To See Girls United In Action!

You know whats really funny? I was watching X Factor US edition season 3 and I never put 2 and 2 together. Girls United, which I blogged (see post HERE) about had appeared on the show for the groups edition.

Nicole Cordova of Girlicious joined with two other talented ladies by the name of Candice Craig and Alex Segal to creat Girls United but unfortunately the trio didn't make the final group cut (or at least that's what I heard since I missed a few episodes). I don't know what the future holds for the girl group but we can all finally see the girls in action, which I've been waiting for since 2012.

New Music: Lady Gaga ft. R-Kelly - Do What U Want

"I See Booty" (Benzino song) is exactly what starts playing in my head when I see Lady Gaga's new single cover for her single 'Do What U Want'.

I honestly never expected to see R-Kelly and Lady Gaga on the same track but whatever the case is the interesting pairing actually worked quite well. The ARTPOP single is just one of the tracks that Lady Gaga will be releasing every Monday in preparation for her ARTPOP albums release on November 11th.
