I was never really a big Demi Lovato fan (shocking, I know!), but her new single is irresistible. I’m loving the vocals (including the parts where her voice goes hoarse a little), and the chorus is killer. I also love that the last line is the same as the first.
Complete with a prince charming (sort of), a cute girl, villains, hearts, and other girly things, Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” is almost like a fairy tale. The video is supposed to be symbolic, giving us a glimpse of Katy’s life since the whirlwind success of her last album.
I appreciate the effort, but the video serves cheese — lots of it, in fact. The ‘symbolisms’ in this video are too shallow and obvious to really be interesting.
Although Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection is one of the most unnecessary re-releases of this past year, “Wide Awake” is actually a good song. I prefer Katy Perry when she’s having fun and incorporating humour into her videos, so I find “Wide Awake” somewhat disappointing.
The guys of Maroon 5 weren’t kidding when they said that their next album Overexposed will be their most commercial record yet.
Usher’s new LP Looking 4 Myself tries hard to please two crowds, and the final product is unsatisfying. For half of the record, the crooner tries to please long-term fans who crave RnB music from him. For the other half, Usher produces songs for the masses, those who control iTunes charts and a record’s commercial success.
The result is a very confused record that is neither dance nor RnB. It’s also not a very good record.
This is really cool! Young Empires just released a new video — and you and your friends can star on it!
Singer-songwriter Katie Herzig’s has released the video for “Lost and Found,” her latest single off of The Waking Sleep.
The video, just like the song, is quite beautiful. Set in the woods, it shows Herzig looking for something she lost. The video’s simple concept works I think because it doesn’t distract from the gorgeous song. It also captures the song’s vibe.
