[Review] Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

Born This Way

Lady Gaga was “Born This Way”. The dance/pop artist became well known for her public theatrics and controversial lyrics since her debut in the music industry, so chances of her taking it down a notch are highly unexpectable on this new record and people shouldn’t be surprised. Let’s just say I would never play this album around my parents because there’s no such thing as discrete on “Born This Way”. Gaga keeps it freaky and raw, and will forevermore remain unapologetic for expressing music in her own unique way.  I’m not too big on every single song on the album but there were a few that could receive a passing grade.

[Review] Jennifer Lopez’ “LOVE?”

LOVE?

It’s been four years since Jennifer Lopez released an album, and we should all know by know the stress she endured to finally be able to get back in the music game. After her relationship with Sony Music Entertainment ended, the fate of “LOVE?” was left uncertain. Well, J.LO has officially dropped her 7th studio album and it’s truly a soundtrack for the summer. You’re guaranteed to hear club bangers, hip hop, and mid-tempo r&b tracks. I listened to the entire album over and over without finding spot fillers. “LOVE?” is an excellent comeback effort from the superstar and with producers like RedOne, Tricky Stewart, StarGate, Lady GaGa, and The-Dream, she can do no wrong. Here’s a full review of the album from my perspective: Continue reading “[Review] Jennifer Lopez’ “LOVE?””

"Born This Way" Video Premiere

‘Queen of antics’ Lady GaGa has unleashed the music video for her latest single “Born This Way“. I wasn’t feeling the song from start; it just sounds too much like a Madonna track from the 80’s.

Maybe I’m missing something, or maybe it’s just that I’m getting sick of this Euro Pop trend in the industry that nothing sounds original and worthy of my ears. “Born This Way” is the first single from GaGa’s third studio album of the same title, which will be released in May. Look out for her second single “Judas” later in the Spring. Check out the video below and tell us what you think: Continue reading “Lady GaGa was “Born This Way”? Yea right!”
