Brace yourselves lovies, here’s one playlist you’d put on repeat for months! xx
1. Katy Perry – Firework
Probably one of the best songs in Katy’s LP, this track has everything going on – outstanding lyrics, a massive dosage of club beats – what’s more enticing than this? ‘Make ‘em go up, as you shoot across the sky’ – kinda cheesy but who cares? This is a real feel-good track.
2. Far East Movement – Girls On The Dancefloor
They may be known for their bad arse party animal lifestyle but these Asian-American lads know how to deliver brilliant, massive hip-hop beats. You can give ‘em your hate but there’s not stopping these lads from taking over the world and what an awesome way to start cracking the charts by conquering the country with the largest music industry. Cherrytree – you’ve just put your money into some worth here.
3. Rihanna – Only Girl (In The World)
I was petrified when Rihanna suddenly evolved into this monster, blood craving, psycho-looking person last year after her reported beating up from former beau Chris Brown. It’s good she’s back with a bit of a more wholesome image and a banging single to match that up.
4. Ke$ha – We R Who We R
Sometimes you have to admit that you have a guilty pleasure you’ve been indulging secretly and Ke$ha’s is just one of ‘em. Her new single, ‘We R Who We R’ doesn’t veer much away from the sound of ‘Tik Tok’ but at least she’s giving us undoubtly likable tracks suited for everybody’s consumption nowadays.
5. Lights – My Boots
You’ll just never know what she’ll offer next. ‘My Boots’ is still synthy, but its electro-pop influence surely overpowers her former sound. Brilliant change of style and yet she retains her identity. You just gotta love this girl.
6. Brandon Flowers – Only The Young
At first, we were all pretty much scared that The Killers might have split up but then we see the bright side of it, that is Brandon Flowers is releasing music as a solo artist. ‘Crossfire’ was incredible and this brand new track isn’t bad either. Doesn’t look like that it is going to be a world smash but this track has something that’s quite listenable to all folks.
7. Cee Lo Green – Forget You
Known to many as ‘Fuck You’ – this track puts a smile on your face whenever you hear it. Ironically, it’s a screw you song but it grows to us like a pocketful of sunshine in every play.
8. Pixie Lott – Broken Arrow
Hearing Pixie’s re-released LP, ‘Broken Arrow’ isn’t my initial choice as a single to an album titled ‘Turn It Up Louder’ – but ‘Broken Arrow’ just made the cut as this track shows Pixie’s amazing vocals and an irresistible chorus which at the same time makes you sob.
9. The Ting Tings – Hands
Didn’t really want to comment about this but yeah, The Ting Tings are back and we all can’t wait for their new LP.
10. Sky Ferreira – Obsession
I guess I have to admit I have an obsession for this 17 year-old’s music. She’s just likable in myriad ways and as I have said before think of Miley but shave off her irritating tween image. Pure brilliance.
11. Tinie Tempah – Wonderman (feat. Ellie Goulding)
Ellie + Tinie Tempah = odd but Brilliant pairing.
12. Kelly Rowland – Forever and A Day
Let’s just say I’d wait forever and a day just to hear Miss Kelendria’s new record based on this one eh?
13. Nuhdeen Coyle – Insatiable
Look what we’ve got here then? The Irish songstress waiting for her shot of spotlight in the music business – definitely away from Girls Aloud. ‘Insatiable’ isn’t exactly what you’d expect as a debut effort from Nadine but it’s very convincing and more worthy of emulation to say the least.
14. Maroon 5 – Give A Little More
15. The Wanted – Heart Vacancy
It saddens me why these lads had to pose naked in every gay magazine in the UK to get attention. At least they give good music – that’s what’s more important to me then.
16. Kings of Leon – Radioactive
This track sparks the long-awaited comeback from an American band who’s as big as f*ck in every part of the world except their home country. ‘Radioactive’ is a smart single choice but isn’t particularly the first one you’d patronise from their new bad-ass LP, ‘Come Around Sundown’. Hear the LP for yourselves mates.
17. Cheryl Cole – Promise This
I still don’t get why I’m a sucker for Cheryl Cole. I mean, this song isn’t top notch but I think most us like it right? Even though the new album sports a lot of massive potential, I still don’t get Cheryl’s image as an artist. She’s already been just the cutesy little pop star slash judge slash ex-wife of a footballer slash prettiest face on earth thing right?
18. Shontelle – Perfect Nightmare
I think I’m quite surprised to see a Shontelle track inside this month’s playlist. After frustrating me with the super late success of ‘Impossible’, Her new album sports some awesome tracks that definitely needs some recognition. One of them is ‘Perfect Nightmare’ as the track caresses us with an R&B piano-inflicted verse then evolves into something fiery, feisty and dancy that sulks in every bit of pop greatness as it emerges into the chorus. Pretty good one, I must say.
19. Enrique Iglesias feat. Nicole Scherzinger – Heartbeat
Well, this track from Scherzy and Enrique is prolly the best from his new album, Euphoria. And have you seen that video? Oh God – that’s what I call chemistry.
20. P!nk – Raise Your Glass
Oh. Don’t be surprised this made the cut. She’s just bad-ass as always and we love it.
