Hello friends! I apologize for not having a music blog last week. I've been occupied working on another music blog for a Kansas City based newspaper, which has taken a lot of my time. I only have a couple new songs for you guys, plus a couple new music videos from songs I have previously blogged about. Let's start with my newest discoveries.
Jessie J "Do It Like a Dude (Explicit version)
My friend Sarah shared this video of me, curious about my opinion on it. My first impression was that I saw Jessie J as a mix between Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj (that's a mind blowing thought in itself), with a slight mix of Rhianna's rockier music stylings. After listening to it several times, I'm getting into it. She's very aggressive natured, which will shock many but please others. Just yesterday, I discovered a new video of hers.
Jessie J feat. B.O.B. "Price Tag"
Jessie J has a very unique style among her other pop/dance counterparts. Add this collaboration with B.O.B. and she's going to get some attention from the music world. I'm going to keep an eye on her career and see how it unfolds.
T.I. featuring Christina Aguilera "Castle Walls"
When I noticed this collaboration, I thought "this could be a great blend of voices and lyrics." It seems to work nicely. I like that Christina is exploring her career opportunities (which part of it is because of her recent developments in her personal life... hey it happens). I'm definitely interested in seeing how this music video is going to look.
Okay, now to share a couple new music videos!
Avril Lavigne "What the Hell"
The video is fun, flirty and chaotic... totally Avril Lavigne's style. Welcome back girlie!!!
Pink "Fucking Perfect"
Okay, this video got me close to teary by the end. It was a very heartfelt story. I loved that Tina Majorino was cast for this video... she's one of the few child stars that have reemerged as an adult to some really great roles.
Well, that's all for this week's edition of New Music Tuesday. I'm impatiently waiting for the 13th of this month, since that's when Lady Gaga FINALLY releases her first single from her new album, both titled "Born This Way." :-)
