DAILY BEAT: Nicki Minaj – Save Me

Even though technically Nicki Minaj came into the music scene back in 2007, she certainly is one of the best new acts to actually emerge and give us fire hits and pure talent this year. From being a featured artist in monster tracks, Nicki is finally having her fair share of the limelight. With her impenetrable rapping skills, she pulls off her debut album jam-packed with potential hits. One track that particularly stood out from the bunch is ‘Save Me’ which shows Nicki’s vulnerable side amidst all those hip-hop angst she’s been showing us all along.

‘Save Me’ basically, is the best track from her album as she escorts us to the next level with the track’s electropop smoothness. Not to mention she has an amazing singing voice, she really is the one to be watched for the coming years.

Buy ‘Save Me’ along with the other 12 stunning tracks on Nicki’s debut album, ‘Pink Friday’ released November 22nd.

FIRST LISTEN: P!nk – Whataya Want From Me

From the moment I knew P!nk co-wrote this track from Adam Lambert’s debut CD , I kind of thought she’d really sing it well. Until recently, she started to perform the track in her Funhouse European tour. I’m not surprised about how she sang it well but I think it perfectly suited both artists’ vocals except that P!nk slightly have an advantage because this is more likely a girls’ song. Nonetheless, it’s not worth comparing P!nk and Adam’s versions because they’re both exceptional. Well done.

‘Whataya Want From Me’ will be made available on P!nk’s new compilation album, ‘Greatest Hits…So Far’ to be released November 15th.

DAILY BEAT: Ke$ha – Cannibal

I ended the ‘Animal’ era on a negative note when I told myself Ke$ha’s just a party animal who decided to get drunk and make such catchy, record-breaking music. Unfortunately, with the string array of singles she has released – I’m forced to eat those words. From the quirky ‘Tik Tok’ rip-off ‘We R Who We R’, to the  sounds of  ‘Sleazy’ I’m convinced her new EP, ‘Cannibal’ might sound actually a lot better than what I am expecting.

This new track, released to the Australian iTunes (it’s like they’re always getting the new Ke$ha singles) ‘Cannibal’ is ferociously brilliant. With explicitly clever lyrics, ‘Use your finger to stir my tea, And for dessert I’ll suck your teeth, Be too sweet, and you’ll be a goner. Yep, I’ll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer’. and an interesting party beat – you’ll love this the more you spin it. Well, it’s one thing Ke$ha’s music have been proved of.
