The young British boy-band is back again with the first single of their sophomore album, and I must say it’s another hit: already very radio-friendly. This would be a good song to party or do something crazy to.
Rihanna is almost ready to serve her seventh studio album. She recently released the first single, “Diamonds.” It’s very different from her previous work and it is commendable how she continues to re-invent herself with every new album she puts out. This song will definitely motivate you, especially when you’re stressed about school work or other young-adult problems you might face.
The very talented Adele has released the theme song for the new “Bond” movie. It’s currently the number one single on iTunes. Definitely a song you can study to — it had a calming effect on me.
If you love Ke$ha, you’ll go nuts to this single. The song is very infectious and would make you want to head to the dance floor just as most of her previous singles have. Another fun/party song to add to your playlist or iPod.
The young country singer has put out about four singles from her upcoming album “RED,” which have ruled the charts and radio. For this new single, Swift tries out a different style from her usual country songs. “I Knew You Were Trouble” is experimenting with rock/pop and dub step sounds, which I must say was a good move. The song is very catchy and will be as successful as her first single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” I would recommend listening to this while driving in a car or working out. You can dance to it as well. Her fan core may have negative comments towards the single, but I predict this album will be her most diverse work.
New albums to look out for:
This is by far one of the more soulful albums I’ve heard. Singles like “Adorn” and “Do You…” are extraordinary. It’s a lovely addition to the classic R ‘n’ B albums. I would say it’s an album you listen to when you just want to chill and really enjoy music.
The band recorded “Babel” on the road while touring. The songs are like novellas, with emotional development and dramatic arcs. This is their sophomore album and it shows a lot of depth all-around. This album is predicted to debut at number one on the Billboard charts this coming week.
An album filled with different styles, a sequel to their 2009 album The Resistance.
One of the most conscious and controversial MCs in the game delivers a follow-up to his previous album “Food & Liquor.” He touches on heavy subjects and sticks to his undeniable flow. Definitely one to get you thinking.
