When Jessica Sanchez promised a “dancey” album, she wasn’t kidding. “Tonight,” which features Ne-Yo, is a pop-dance track that you’d probably jam to when you’re in the club and already a little tipsy.
Since bursting into the pop music scene with his Rihanna collaboration “We Found Love”, things have seriously looked up for Calvin Harris. The Scottish DJ has since released several successful singles including “Let’s Go” and “Feel So Close”. His higher profile has resulted to a gig at the 2012 VMAs, a sure sign that he has arrived. Although their music is quite different from each other, Harris’ career trajectory seems poised to follow that of David Guetta’s.
I resisted this song for so long, but I just can’t anymore. I’m totally obsessed with it.
Pop Music Updates – August 8, 2012
- Beyoncé is working with Diane Warren again. Their previous collaboration is the ballad “I Am Here”. Not bad news, but I’d like to see Sasha Fierce back, to be honest.
- Pink’s upcoming album will include a collaboration with Eminem. And Eminem is working with Lady Gaga. Personally, I’d rather see Eminem work with Rihanna again.
- Ne-Yo says Trey Songz is part of the reason why RnB is in decline. This is coming from the dude who’s been churning out dance-pop hits lately!
- Lady Gaga’s new album will be titled ARTPOP — and she wants you to use ALL CAPS when you type it. I was disappointed with her last album, but I really hope this one’s not too bad.
- Carly Rae Jepsen’s album Kiss to drop next month. I’m ready to be slayed!
- LA quintet The Neighborhood releases debut EP I’m Sorry. Watch their new video “Female Robbery” on their website. Their sound is pretty haunting — rockish, but still kinda rhythmic. Very promising, I think!
Drop me a line if you have a scoop!
After giving Rihanna the biggest hit of her career, Calvin Harris is now ready to take the spotlight. The 28-year old DJ just premiered his single “Let’s Go”, and it is a total club banger.
Featuring RnB artist Ne-Yo, this track is clearly meant for radio — the build up to the chorus, the faster pace in the chorus, and the slow down in the bridge are all things you’d expect from the biggest dance hits of today.
