MUSIC VIDEO: Cheryl Cole – The Flood

I kinda predicted the video would actually look like this because I don’t want to see another crappy studio shot video. And this I must say is Cheryl’s best yet. Pure, emotional and beautiful as usual. But her voice is still crap compared to Nadine’s. Just sayin’.

MUSIC VIDEO: Aggro Santos & Kimberley Walsh – Like U Like

Britain’s version of Pitbull, Aggro Santos struts his new video and goes Speed dating with Girls Aloud babe Kimberly Walsh in his new single, ‘Like U Like’. The single which is out January 2011 isn’t that hard to like except you could just imagine Kimberly just singing the track solo and it would absolutely rock. I wasn’t too impressed with the song’s production but the addition of Kimberly makes it more appreciable than it is supposed to be. Let it have a few spins and you’re defo hooked to it in no time.

MUSIC VIDEO: Taio Cruz feat. Kylie Minogue – Higher

British R&B sensation Taio Cruz and Australian Goddess Kylie has just bought the house down with the music video to Taio’s smashing brand new single, ‘Higher’. The collaboration which will be made available for Europe and Australia is set for a late November release.

The video’s concept isn’t what I would have imagined for the video and it certainly lacked the hype the song’s all about. It could’ve been better and yet we’re disappointed. But the track’s still awesome though!

FIRST LISTEN: Adele – Rolling In The Deep (New Single)

British Grammy Award winner Adele premieres the much awaited first single off her sophomore album, 21. The track ‘Rolling In The Deep’ will be featured in her new LP set to be released early next year.

‘Rolling In The Deep’ is still pretty much in the same element as Adele’s other tracks from ’19’. You actually don’t expect so much difference from artists like her because the soul in each song is pretty much just the thing you’re looking for. The jazzy, soulful beats of this track isn’t striking at first listen but it’s getting more interesting as you hit the play for a few  more times. Compared to ‘Chasing Pavements’ and the entirety of ’19’, ‘Rolling In The Deep’ is a sign that ’21’ might produce a more adult, contemporary and jazz incorporated with enough soul for our earbuds. Let’s just hope this is true.

MUSIC VIDEO: Rihanna feat. Drake – What’s My Name?

OH NA NA, WHAT’S MY NAME? Red-headed Rihanna and Canadian hip-hop sensation Drake has hit it on with this brand new video for Rihanna’s next single, ‘What’s My Name’. I’m quite disappointed they didn’t have enough skin contact or much exposure as a couple in this video but I think it would be definitely lovely to see them going out together in real life.

LOUD is released November 12th in Australia, November 15th in the UK and 16th in the US.

Cover-Rage: Adele – 21 (Album Art + Single & Album Details)

British Grammy Award winning singer Adele has revealed the details for her new single and album!

Adele is set to return early 2011 with the release of her eagerly anticipated new single and album.

“Rolling In The Deep” will be the first single, released on Sunday January 16th (UK). Written and produced by Adele and award winning British producer Paul Epworth, it’s a “dark bluesy gospel disco tune” according to Adele herself.

Adele’s new album “21” is set to be released on Monday January 24th (UK) & Tuesday February 22nd (USA/CAN) About its release she says “I’m very excited, nervous, eager, anxious but chuffed to announce my new album! It’s taken a while and it knocked me for six when writing it. It’s different from “19”, it’s about the same things but in a different light. I deal with things differently now. I’m more patient, more honest, more forgiving and more aware of my own flaws, habits and principles. Something that comes with age I think. So fittingly this record is called “21”. The whole reason I called my first album “19” was about cataloging what happened to me then and who I was then, like a photo album you see the progression and changes in a person throughout the years”.

Most of the album was made in Malibu with the legendary Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Jay Z, Red Hot Chilli Peppers) and back in Kensal Rise in London with Paul Epworth (Plan B, Bloc Party, Florence). Adele cites Wanda Jackson, Yvonne Fair, Andrew Bird, Mary J Blige, Mos Def, Elbow, Tom Waits and Kanye West amongst others as key influences on “21”.

and we certainly can’t wait for it! Bring it on! :)

Single Review: McFly – Shine A Light (feat. Taio Cruz)

I don’t know what happened to McFly when all of a sudden they’re back with their fittest bods, oozing sex appeal and a more pop sounding music. Usually, the punk/rock band gives us those head banging rock tunes but with their new-found change of style, they’re becoming like the male counterpart of The Saturdays and a new rival for JLS, The Wanted and OneDirection except they play bloody good with their instruments. Adding to the surprise, their new single features UK R&B sensation Taio Cruz in this poppy, boy-band sounding ‘Shine A Light’.

To be roughly honest with you, I didn’t really pay attention to McFly’s music way back then when they started in 2004. I had a couple of tracks on my iPod which I liked before but they kind of veered away into my music circulation since then. ‘Shine A Light’ boosts a typical boyband chorus – a midtempo, electropop track that oozes with Cruz’s synths and a catchy ‘Eh Eh’ squirming around the background. At first, you may kind of think that this pair won’t work but the result is quite convincing and we’re loving every minute of it.

RELEASED: November 8, 2010 (UK)

LABEL: Island / Universal UK
