Music Tuesdays: Call Me A Traitor

Since I’ve completely abandoned US artists, I think it’s pretty fair to say that I am a Pop traitor. Fortunately, I don’t care – I will continue to be on the UK bandwagon until further notice.

Ryan O’Shaughnessy

Ryan O’Shaughnessy, a young Irish singer-songwriter, was a contestant on the latest season of Britain’s Got Talent. Now, he’s an up-and-coming teen heartthrob.ย Check out his BGT audition!

He’s so precious and talented! If you like “No Name,” I would suggest watching its official music video below.

Apparently Ryan’s girl has decided to remain friends. Poor guy… At least he will have plenty attention from the opposite sex from now on. ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

Aiden Grimshaw

Another young UK artist to watch is Aiden Grimshaw. Aiden was a contestant on the UK’s X Factor, and has been recording music ever since. His new video for “Curtain Call” is below.

It’s a different sound from the sweet melodies of Ryan, but I still like it. What do you think? Is it suitable for American radio?

p.s. Tickets for the One Direction 2013 Tour are already on sale. Hollers! hahah

Music Tuesdays: UK Artists Continue to Bring It

I’ve been rather bored at the office lately, which means I’ve been listening to a lot of music. My latest fave is Emeli Sande.

Emeli Sande

Emeli is a Scottish R&B singer, and she’s soooo good! Check out her “My Kind of Love” below.

I am absolutely IN LOVE with this song! I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve listened to it. It definitely needs to be on the radio here in the states. Sigh…

FUN FACT: Emeli’s first name is Adele – I wonder why she doesn’t go by that…lol

Rebecca Ferguson

Another UK artist that is catching my attention is Rebecca Ferguson. Rebecca appeared on the UK’s X Factor a couple of years ago, competing against famous youngsters One Direction and Cher Lloyd. Although I didn’t care for Rebecca on the show, she has started to grow on me. Watch her video for “Too Good To Lose” now!

So simple, yet so much fun!

If you like “Too Good To Lose,” then you should definitely check out Rebecca’s other single “Teach Me How To Be Loved.”

#Beautiful

I am just so thankful that the UK continues to promote its best talents. I’m still waiting for America to do the same. I guess I’ll just have to settle for Nicki Minaj…Side eye.

Music Tuesdays: The Brits Are Taking Over

Remember this girl???

Cher Lloyd

Cher didn’t win X Factor two years ago, but she’s still managed to be a successful artist in the UK. Now, it’s time for Ms. Lloyd to make her mark on American radio.ย Check out her latest single below!

“Want U Back” was actually released months ago overseas. Nonetheless, I’m so happy that it’s finally reached stateside. It looks like Ms. Lloyd will be joining One Direction and The Wanted in taking over the U.S. At least I hope so… ๐Ÿ˜‰

AND, just for kicks, here is one of my favorite Cher Lloyd performances on UK X Factor. Enjoy!

Why didn’t she win again? Side eye…

Music Tuesdays: Brandy And Monica Are Back!

I’m so happy to see these two collaborating again. Watch their new music video for “It All Belongs To Me” below!

For some reason, I just really like this song! It has a different sound to it.

What do you think?

Music Tuesdays: Nicki Minaj is NOT a Rapper. She’s a “Popstar.”

After hearing Nicki Minaj on David Guetta’s track, I started to like her again….UNTIL she released a music video for “Stupid Hoe” and performed “Roman” at the Grammys.

Fortunately, Minaj has decided to leave those tragedies behind (at least for now) and put out some more promising Pop music.

Honestly, I can no longer consider Nicki Minaj a rapper. She clearly wants to be Britney Spears and Lady Gaga with a Katy Perry wig. Sometimes I think the direction of her career is kind of sad. Instead of trying to be the best female rapper of all time, she’s turning into just another dance-track maker.

The song is cute though!

Moving on…

Another rapper releasing new music right now is B.o.B. I love B.o.B. He’s always had his own unique sound.

Listen to his new single “So Good” below!

I know that this song is about to have major airplay. People were already going crazy this morning.

p.s. Rihanna and Chris Brown’s “Birthday Cake” has hit the radio.

Music Tuesdays: To Hell With Love Songs

Personally, I heart the happier love songs. haha Nonetheless, a lot of people seem to be relating more to heartache, pain, and independence, than to love and happiness. I mean, just think about it.

Adele won 6 Grammys after releasing an album about her ex.

Rihanna hit numero uno once again with a melody about finding love in hopeless locations.

And now, Kelly Clarkson stands at the top of the charts with a song that lets everyone know that she’s better off alone.

ย 

BTWs, listen to Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” below!

I heart this song!

ANYWAYS…

I don’t know what it is, but these songs are definitely the types to reach number 1 nowadays. With that said, there’s still plenty of love to go around.

Tell’em Whitney!

This is my ish! Sang it all the way home today in the car. And, in case your wondering, I will be posting a Whitney song every day this week. ๐Ÿ˜‰

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!!!!

Music Tuesdays: Neon Hitch Anyone?

On my way to work, I heard one of the best club songs ever!…Okay, that might be somewhat of an exaggeration. Nonetheless, Neon Hitch’s “*^&% U Betta” is already on the top of my listening list for 2012.

Listen below!!

I know this song is beyond vulgar. I tried my best to find the radio edit version…With that said, this is the perfect song for any club/bar, especially for the ones in West Hollywood…;-)

Since “*&(^ ย U Betta” is doing the absolute most with its lyrics, here’s another song by Neon Hitch called “Get Over U.”

The video for “Get Over U” came out early last year.

Anyways, I really like the sound of her music, and her voice – Neon Hitch definitely makes Gym Class Heroes’ “*^$ Back Home” that much better.

p.s. I know that I keep using the most random symbols to express *&($ and *^&. I’m looking out for the kids! haha ๐Ÿ˜‰
