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: 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.

VIDEO: Robyn performs live on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

I’m still wondering why Robyn is the biggest thing in pop music that never actually happened. I mean she’s putting off these amazing tracks and she always ends up unappreciated by the music buying public. But it’s actually nice to see her promote the last installment of the Body Talk series in this late night show. I think if she will be presented in a larger platform, a lot of people will actually appreciate the electropop goodness of this Swedish delight.

Check out her fantastic performance of ‘Dancing On My Own’ below and check out the long-haired guy in the background who seems to be enjoying the track himself along Robyn. Brilliant. Just brilliant.

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.
