Following last month’s release of the dark and gritty new single, pop hit-maker extraordinaire, Bonnie McKee returns with an official video. Shot in Los Angeles using a vintage Panasonic VHS camera, the new video arrives hot on the heels of Bonnie’s recent sold out show at The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood, and was directed by Darren Craig (Rihanna, Kesha, Shakira). Watch the hazy, retro-steeped visual for “Thorns” below: Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as … Continue reading Bonnie McKee Unveils “THORNS” M/V

Have a listen and check out the deep lyrics below: Gravity from your fellow man will tear you down if it can, yes it can Takes more than just a lifetime to dry your fears in the end I realize … Continue reading Sweet Tunes: “Imaginary” by Eli T.
I usually like 4Minute‘s music and their videos, but their latest Jpop single left me with mixed feelings. Not that the song wasn’t appealing, it was generic as most of mainstream dance so of course it’s got the appeal. But what I thought was kind of lackluster was the music video. They seemed so tired, and am I the only one sick of seeing Hyuna … Continue reading 4Minute has “Love Tension”
Release date: 7.4.2012 Label: EMI Music Japan Purchase: CDJapan | Rating: 4/5 I’ve never paid any attention to this artist before. But I’m so glad I finally did. Her music is awesome. Taking inspiration from uptempo genres like dance, electro, and dancehall, to midtempo pop, r&b, and soul, “Believe” is one of the best Urban Jpop albums I’ve heard all year. The heart racing opener … Continue reading Music Review: Che’Nelle’s Believe
NU’EST is THE only male Kpop group I’m feeling right now and since the year started. No, it’s not because they’re After School‘s labelmates, well, partly, but it’s mostly due to the fact that these guys demonstrate more confidence, swag, talent, and fierceness than any of the male groups out now. I just caught their music video for the new single “Action” and I’m beyond … Continue reading NU’EST Starts The ‘Action’
Eccentric kpop girl group f(x) has returned with a very vibrant music video to their latest single “Electric Shock.” I enjoyed the video very much, especially that tomboy’s colorful contacts and less than flashy attire. The song’s hot too. Check it out and tell us what you think: Credit: SM Continue reading f(x) Gives Us An Electric Shock
I love me some Demi Lovato. Seriously. She’s such a passionate singer and her newest music video is actually for my favorite track on her ‘Unbroken‘ album. “Give Your Heart A Break” is a song about love and taking chances, not about heartbreak like some may think. Anyways, without me going on and on, check out the sweet video and tell us what you think. Continue reading Let Demi “Give Your Heart A Break?
Kpop’s latest arrival is a male group from Pledis Entertainment (home of After School) called NU’EST. Initially, I was under the impression that their name is pronounced ‘newest’, but apparently its pronounced new east. Anyways, whatever it is they call themselves or what you so choose to call them, I like their debut single album ‘FACE‘. And there’s absolutely no bias here. I’m not feeling them simply because I’m a fan of Kahi and After School, I truly like NU’EST and that intro has me hooked. Continue reading “NU’EST Brings It, A Little”
After releasing the full audio for his latest single, Jin Akanishi has now finally unveiled the sexy music video for “Sun Burns Down.” Taking inspiration from spy films like ‘Entrapment‘ and ‘Mission Impossible,’ Jin delivers a video that’s both entertaining and memorable. Check it out and tell us what you think. Credit: JinAkanishiUSA Continue reading “Sun Burns Down” MV
Willow Smith is not making anyone forget she’s a big Rihanna fan. In fact that’s becoming more evident in her style of singing. The youngest in the Smith clan has released the music video for her latest single “Fireball,” which features the hit rapper and official Barbie lover Nicki Minaj. I liked the theatrics in the opening of the video and the choreography of the … Continue reading Willow drops a “Fireball”
My initial impression of The Saturdays was a group that delivered soulful, soft rock, sensual pop music. I had no idea they’d be a modern day electropop, dance act. Anyways, fast forward to the present and you’ll learn of their ten top 10 singles and an ever growing international fan base of devoted fans. Indeed it’s fair to say they’ve achieved moderate success since their debut in 2008 with “If This Is Love.” However, my only memory of this group is 2010’s “Missing You.” And now, putting all those accomplishments in their homeland aside, has The Saturdays managed to deliver a solid return with their 3rd studio album “On Your Radar” and possibly get the attention of the rest of the world? Only a review will tell. Continue reading “[Review] The Saturdays’ “On Your Radar””
Coldplay‘s latest album ‘Mylo Xyloto‘ is officially released today but sadly I’m just not interested, and I never was. The group did pique my interest back when they first came out with that song ‘The Scientist,’ however, I was never a fan of their music. I don’t see what all the hype is about. I mean, sure they’re talented an all but so are other … Continue reading Coldplay releases ‘Mylo Xyloto’, do we care?
Olivia Lufkin, or OLIVIA, is a Japanese rock singer-songwriter. She is best known for her musical work on the popular anime series “NANA”, as well as for her artistic creations. Olivia first made her debut as one third of the pop group D&D. And in 1998, she dropped out of the group to become a solo artist. Olivia’s music is quite far fetched from that of her previous group, which recorded mostly europop/dance songs. She went on to release six singles throughout 1999 and 2000, until later releasing her debut album “Synchronicity”. Continue reading “Olivia Lufkin is Jrock’s treasure”
Ms. Spears has unveiled the full music video for her latest single “Til The World Ends“, after giving fans a 30 second tease earlier this week. The video was like an “I’m A Slave (4 u)” part 2. It was awesome. I liked the underground partying. Effects was cool. The video had great artistic direction and I enjoyed it a lot, except for one obvious thing: Britney Spears looked like she was just learning how to dance. Throughout the entire music video my eyes were stolen by her dancers but not her. There was just no fire. No effort. I feel sad for her ’cause she’s not the way she used to be. C’mon Britney what happened? Did your dance fever wore off? Anyways, check out the music video below and tell us what you think. Continue reading “Britney tries to dance “Til The World Ends””
Britney has converted to Dance. I don’t see how people are calling this an entirely pop album, ’cause the last time I checked Pop and Dance are too different genres. And Ms. Spears has transitioned into Dance on her seventh album “Femme Fatale“, with the exception of 3 tracks. I’ve concluded with the fact that maybe the label wanted to conform with the going trend of the industry right now, which happens to be a combination of europop, electro and dance. It’s not that I don’t like the album, that’s quite the opposite. I accept it, but there’s nothing mind-blowing, except the fact that Britney changes her vocals throughout the album so fans don’t tire of it. With no further delay, let me get into more details as to help you understand track by track why this is the most unique record released from the princess of pop to date, and sure enough she’ll be at the top of Billboard next week: Continue reading “[Review] Britney Spears’ “Femme Fatale””
UK born singer-songwriter Clare MaGuire has revealed the music video for her song ‘The Last Dance‘. This is the second single from her highly anticipated debut album ‘Light After Dark‘, which will be released on February 28, 2011.
The music video has a rather dark setting, however its artistic direction is well done, the song is catchy, and Clare’s vocal ability is just breathtaking. ‘The Last Dance‘ will be officially released on February 20th, so look out for it and don’t forget to check out the video below: Continue reading “Save “The Last Dance” for Clare MaGuire”
Rihanna‘s “Only Girl (In The World)” music video was released and it has an interesting concept: she’s the only girl in her world. The video depicts Rihanna lying in a field, standing on hill tops, dancing among flowers, and sitting on a swing that hangs from the sky. The music video gives off a “What Dreams May Come” feel. A surreal imagery. See for yourself: Continue reading “RiRi’s the “Only Girl” in the world”
