‘Price Tag’ – Jessie J feat. BoB

Rating: A-

After doing my artist watch on Jessie J last week I thought it would be appropriate to review her first US single ‘Price Tag’. The songs video also premiered last week, so it looks like Jessie is beginning her crack of the market.

‘Price Tag’ sounds radically different than her debut single ‘Do It Like A Dude’. There a smooth guitar line, which boast a more poppy feel. Jessie has left all the dark and grimy tones and opted for something more uplifting.

Single Cover: ‘I Need A Doctor’

Here is the official cover to the new Dr. Dre single ‘I Need A Doctor’ featuring. Skylar Grey and Eminem.

The track is set to be the 2nd official single to Dre’s new album Detox, which once again does not have an official release date. There is a rumor that this could be for a re-release for Recovery, but I’d only count that as gossip considering there has been no official word about a re-release.

An unfinished version of the track did leak last week, but Continue reading

Nicki Does SNL

Nicki Minaj made her SNL debut last night, performing two songs, rapping in the digital short and showing off her acting chops along the way.

It was quite an impressive set for Nicki, but I was beyond disappointed to see that she was performing “Right Thru Me”. I was hoping for literally any other song, but she did redeem herself with “Moment 4 Life”, which only seems to get better and better.

I honestly Continue reading

Lauryn Hill Performs Live

Lauryn Hill is currently making her rounds by dusting off her mic and performing again. While many speculate that this could lead to another album, most joy in the fact that she’s out performing again.

While their have been many female rappers, there was always something different about Lauryn Hill. It might be the fact that her album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, received five Grammy awards including album of the year, or the fact that it holds the record for biggest debut for female rap. Whatever the reason is, Lauryn seems to be in a league of her own.

The video below was taken from her Continue reading

Video: ‘Who’s That Chick’ Take 3

And why not add to the current music video theme with the third and “official” version of the Rihanna/David Guetta song ‘Who’s That Chick’. Honestly this is a final attempt to make the song a hit in the US. Thus far it has peaked at 51 on the Hot 100, and actually dropped a few spots on this weeks chart.

Last october the song and video were leaked months before the official release date, and then a night version of the video was released soon after. The song didn’t even receive an official radio release date until December, so for some people the track is actually quite old.

I have Continue reading

Video: ‘Moment 4 Life’

It only seems appropriate to post a music video after my earlier story. Nicki Minaj and Drake premiered the highly anticipated video to their song ‘Moment 4 Life’ tonight on MTV. The song is the fourth official single from Nicki’s debut album Pink Friday.

The clip follows Nicki in a fairy tale world, with her own Fairy Godmother and Prince. The video Nicki’s best to date, and the arrival of her alter-ego Martha as the Fairy Godmother was Continue reading

The Power of the Music Video

This past week P!nk released the video for her new single ‘F***ing Perfect’ (or ‘Perfect’ for radio purposes). The video was a shocker to say the least, with graphic depiction’s of attempted suicide, followed by a victorious recovery. Needless to say the video got people talking.

More importantly though it also got people buying, which is why the song has been number 1 on itunes for few days. The song Continue reading

Poll: Diggy Simmons

Descending from hip-hop royalty, Diggy Simmons is currently holding it down for the genre that many would say is dead.

He may be young, but his families talent is clearly running through his veins. I’m really loving the fact that he hasn’t blown up yet because it’s Continue reading
