Review On Kesha’s New Video – “Your Love Is My Drug”

Posted in billboard, charts, movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2010 by KammusiK

The new Kesha’s video “Your Love Is My Drug”, well, I think we waited for something better, but what I have to recognize is Kesha’s original creativity and finally not trying to copy to other female artists in the industry right now. The video is very psychodelic just a Kesha said it would be, but the best part of the video is the body-painting part, looks very interesting, is the video great? No, but it’s different, and very simple, but sometimes simple is better.

Review On Eminem’s New Single – “Not Afraid”

Posted in billboard, charts, movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2010 by KammusiK

“Not Afraid” is Eminem’s new and lead single from his up-coming album “Recovery”. After dissapearing a while from important radio airplay and charts with his previous album “Relapse” Eminem has finally come back with “Not Afraid”, and I don’t use to say this to Eminem, but with this single, it’s nice to have him back. “Not Afraid” has debut at #1 on the Billboard Hot 1oo because of strong downloads and maybe will start to falling down the charts with time cause this song is not as versatil as previous humoristic Marshal singles, and thank God, this is bigger. “Not Afraid” has shown a growth on Eminem’s music, he’s making deeper lyrics dealing with his own problems like his addiction to drugs. With a very catchy and interesting chorus and dark tone this is ready to stay in your head for several weeks. Although the single is well done, it is very similar to two of his previous singles, like a “Toy Soldiers” meets “Cleaning Out My Closet”,  but the combination is interesting enough, enough to come back to his historic rap career, one that he left for a while.

Review On Katy Perry’s New Single – “California Gurls”

Posted in billboard, charts, movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2010 by KammusiK

“California Gurls” is the new and lead single from Katy Perry’s up-coming album yet to be titled. This song features Snoop Dogg’s rap and to be honest, he does it pretty good here. “California Gurls” seems to be the response of Jay-Z’s “Empire State Of Mind” as Katy stated, but, is this as good as Jay-Z’s? It is. Her new single is joyful and it’s very light, totally a summer hit about L.A’s best part, the girls. Even though this ain’t too different from what Katy has done this is pretty interesting, it’s like “Hot N Cold” meets “Waking Up In Vegas” and the comparission with the last one is heavy. Finally, we don’t have here another sex anthem in ways like Kesha, GaGa, Aguilera or Cyrus, this has Perry’s label, and yes, it worths…

Recommendation Of The Week: Mika’s – “Blame It On The Girls”

Posted in Uncategorized on May 10, 2010 by KammusiK

In an interview with Q magazine, Mika says:

[“Blame It on the Girls”] sounds like No Doubt. It’s about a wealthy, handsome boy who has everything, yet pretends to be miserable.
—Mika, Q Magazine[4]

The song was inspired by a well-dressed, good-looking man Mika and his sister saw walking down a street in London shouting down his phone. The song uses a musical technique called musique concrète in which the music is devised by using every day objects to make sound. In this particular song, the beat is created by Mika hitting his desk, clapping his hands and stamping his feet.

Review On Miley Cyrus New Video & Song – “Can’t Be Tamed”

Posted in billboard, charts, movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2010 by KammusiK

“Can’t Be Tamed” is the new single from Miley’s new album with same title “Can’t Be Tamed”, but, honestly, this is too different from what Cyrus has done before, I mean, she’s not the “See You Again”, “7 things” or Hanna anymore, she’s reflecting a more adult image this time, but to be this the step one for her new era, well, it’s very weak. “Can’t Be Tamed” has a little bit of various nowdays female artists, so it’s not something fresh, it’s kind of Shakira’s “She Wolf” and Aguilera’s “Not Myself Tonight”, but worse. The electronic music used on the track is not excelent at all, and the lyrics and vocals at this point you have to wonder, does Miley really has a good voice for this? She tries hard to sound sexy, but is more like teen-desperate 17 years old girl who’s trying to seem like a grown woman. Would it be a hit? No, of course it won’t.

Now let’s the see the video, it starts with a nature freak represented by Cyrus, but is in that part when it seems like GaGa, and the cage tend to remain Shakira’s “She Wolf” video, but Miely doesn’t explode the Shakira’s sexiness (and thank God, she’s too young). Is in the second half of the video when it starts with a Beyoncé and Britney mood, but not at the same way, like I said, this first step is weak, very weak. But to be real, does Miley has to take it? Cause we liked more the old Miley, the next-door girl, and these days, we have now lots of fake GaGas.

#18  Adam Lambet – “Whataya Want From Me”

#19  Kesha – “TiK ToK”

#20  Trey Songz feat. Fabolous – “Say Aah”

Well, this the lastest update of the Billboard’s Hot 100, and what we can see here is Usher claiming the top spot for this week with Will.i.am after jumping from #6 to #1 (and damn! I know last week I said it was saying goodbye to the top!). Another high peak this week was Jay-Z finally making it into the top ten with “Young Forever” from his successful album “The Blueprint 3”. Like I said, Lady GaGa, Adam Lambert and Kesha are saying goodbye with “Telephone”, “TiK ToK” and “Whataya Want From Me”, but rising with “Alejandro” and “Your Love Is My Drug” (and still we’re waiting for the videos). But the most impressive thing here is Lady Antebellum’s single “Need You Now” staying for 11 months on the chart and currently peaking at #5. (And hell, I haven’t heard this song yet!)
