Billboard: Katy Perry Scores

Katy Perry continues her winning streak as her single “E.T” advances to number 1 this week. The song is Katy’s fourth to land the top spot from her sophomore album Teenage Dream.

I still do not understand why Katy has found so much success. I will admit that she did shine with “Teenage Dream” and “E.T.” is pretty good as well. Aside from those two I do not understand her overall appeal. She’s average at best in my opinion, but the public seems to disagree with me.

Teenage Dream is now one of the 9 albums in history to produce 4 number 1 singles. The last album to do so was Confessions by Usher.

Single Cover: ‘Beautiful People’

With his Urban single ‘Look At Me Now’ being released to itunes this week, the song is currently at number 3 on itunes, Chris Brown has released the artwork for his next top 40 single ‘Beautiful People’.

If you read my review of the song you would know that I’m not a huge fan of it, and weeks later I feel the same way. It’s too boring and bland for my taste, but I love the album artwork.

Visually I Chris is usually compelling with his artwork. It always has some type of graffiti involved. I just like the Continue reading

‘Beautiful People’ – Chris Brown

Rating: C

This is a good season for Chris Brown fans, with two new songs debuting this month alone. The latest offering from Chris is the Benny Benassi produced ‘Beautiful People’, the next song to be lifted from his album F.A.M.E.

‘Beautiful People’ is clearly catered from top 40 radio and the clubs, which makes sense since ‘Look At Me Now’ boast a more Urban sound. With multiple singles prior to the albums release, it looks like Browns team is doing everything in their power to ensure that the albums a hit.

Reading that the song was produced Benassi intrigued me before I listened to the song. Teaming up with a well known dance produced like Benassi should’ve worked to Browns advantage, but sadly it does not.

‘Look At Me Now’ – Chris Brown feat. Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne

Rating: A

I’ve been meaning to post this song, but time has gotten the best of me. Even after the success of ‘Deuces’, Chris Brown is still left with the task of fixing her career. Thankfully he has decided to put all focus in the music, which is inevitably the only way for him to regain his popularity.

iTunes Madness

Today has been a pretty interesting day on itunes since I did my Release Me Tuesday article this morning, and I’m honestly shocked by the current standings on itunes right now.

First off, I said that I was surprised that Willow wasn’t in the top 10 this morning, and then said that I didn’t think she could pull it off due to the new Taylor Swift songs that were debuting. It looks like I’m going to have to eat my words because ‘Whip My Hair’ is currently number 10 on itunes. This should result in a lofty Billboard debut next week, especially if the track rises.

Chris Brown should also have a healthy debut, with ‘Yeah x3’ currently sitting at 17. I really am surprised at this, Continue reading

Release Me Tuesday

Another week full of new releases on itunes. Even though I literally can’t listen to her without cringing, its completely unavoidable to mention that Taylor Swift is releasing her third album ‘Speak Now’ this week. Its the follow up to 2008’s ‘Fearless’, which went on to win the Grammy for Album Of The Year. Regardless of my ill feeling towards her, this is expected to be one of the years biggest albums.

After the success Eminem saw with ‘Reecovery’, I doubt that Taylor could sell more this year. Then again, no one thought that Susan Boyle would end up on top last year, so anything can happen. Continue reading

Remix: ‘Deuces’- Chris Brown feat. Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabulous, and Andre 3000 (Poll Included Below)

Rating: B

Its clearly evident that Chris Brown is trying to come back harder than ever before. This remix is going to help him out a lot since R&B radio has been the first to welcome him back to the airwaves. While ‘Yeah x3’ begins to spin on pop stations Chris is aiming to milk the ‘Deuces’ cow for all its worth. The line-up alone on this remix is highly impressive, and one would think that that it would be a mind blowing remix, but it fails to impress.

Each rapper does their own thing, but Drake has the best verse. I was excited to see Andre 3000 on the track because he always delivers, but he missed this one. His voice sounds too distorted and I’m not really favoring his flow on this track. Continue reading
