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 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…

Review On Justin Bieber’s New Album – “My World 2.0”

Posted in movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2010 by KammusiK

(ALLMUSIC.COM REVIEW)

Within two months of release, My World went platinum and two of its singles hit the Top 20, making Justin Bieber an almost inescapable teen pop phenomenon. This ten-song disc, which follows its seven-song predecessor by just over four months, is intended to be the second half of his debut rather than a true follow-up. It’s a shrewd ploy that benefits his insatiable following — much of which could be into something else by 2011-2012 — and, in turn, his sales. The two releases are certainly of a piece, filled with upbeat R&B-flavored pop songs with a few ballads that might be termed adult contemporary if the singer happened to be of age. Bieber makes all the right, charming moves for a teen, and he covers all the bases. The dance-pop songs are light on the ears yet memorable; the unrequited material sounds deeply felt; the ballads have all the necessary us-against-the-world teen-love dramatics (though the references in “Stuck in the Moment,” featuring Bonnie & Clyde and Sonny & Cher among other doomed couples, make zero sense on a song voiced by a peppy 16-year-old in 2010). As with My World, everything is age-appropriate. “She says she needs a little company,” sung with the slightest wink in the eye, is as racy as it gets, and even then, Bieber projects an image that is utterly harmless.

Stand-out Tracks: “Baby”, “Somebody To Love”, “Runaway Love”

Review On Shakira’s New Song & Official Anthem of FIFA World Cup 2010

Posted in movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2010 by KammusiK

“Waka Waka” is the name for the official anthem of FIFA’s World Cup 2010, the song written almost completely by Shakira has an obvious African-Contemporaty style, and it features Shakira’s & Freshlyground vocals, it counts with a spanish version that is a little bit better than English version, but they’re basically the same. The song has a very light, soft and pretty joyful sound, it’s a little similar to Shakira’s latest single “Gypsy”. In comparission to previous World Cup anthem provided by same artist, it doesn’t reach the perfection of  “Hips Don’t Lie”, that was way better, but in contrast, there’s nothing to hate in “Waka Waka”, it is just to happy to dislike it and the worldwide sound on it can make you wanna hold hands around the world and dance, it is a good anthem song, just forgettable with time, but it will be good enough for this summer.

Review On Rihanna’s New Song – “Rockstar 101” feat. Slash

Posted in movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2010 by KammusiK

First she did it with “Hard”, and now she’s doing it with the fourth U.S single from “Rated R”, and just when we thought “Hard” was like the worst song she ever released “Rockstar 101” comes out. But, how can I start to review this? What is actually passing through my mind right now is: “How can you treat this sh*t as a single??, no, wait, I have one better, HOW CAN YOU TREAT THIS AS AN ALBUM CUT??, HOW COULD SHE PUT THIS INTO THE FINAL TRACK-LIST??!! WHY DID SLASH PARTICIPATE WITH THIS??” Well, let’s recognized it, we shouldn’t be surprised of the poor material here after listening to the new album, that it’s not brilliant at all. “Rockstar 101” is the most boring song I have heard in about 5 months, the music is not gracious enough, the lyrics are dumb and pointless, saying a lot, but actually telling nothing, and it is too long, 4 minutes for the same annoying tune and boring chorus. But the most shocking part on this is the Slash colaboration, his guitar melody is almost in the whole song, but not as Slash use to play, and actually you won’t realize that he’s featured in this song if you don’t read on the track-list “feat. Slash”, believe me, you wouldn’t notice it, his participation here is empty and replaceable, and readers, I promise you, if this ever become a hit, I’ll cut my left testicle, I promise! She can have lots of money, but baby, you’ll never be a “Rockstar”.

Review On Rihanna’s New Song – “Rude Boy”

Posted in movies, music, video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2010 by KammusiK

“Rude Boy” is Rihanna’s third official U.S single from her new album “Rated R”, but it hasn’t been until now that she’s getting heavy attention from radio and listeners, and it’s not unusual that her record label wanted to release the best song on her new album after the lackluster  success of her lead single “Russian Roulette” and and fugacious second single “Hard”, but the record company did not err in deciding “Rude Boy” as third single, because of the nice reagge-pop sound with a very, very radio-friendly beat. The lyrics are catchy and a little too much naughty, maybe the naugthiest song since “Please Don’t Stop The Music”, and of course, the only song on “Rated R” that can go with those hits of previous album “Good Girl Gone Bad”. Rihanna’s new song will totally be a hit, but I have to say, there is no other song on the album that will make it, she has just played the best card she held in her hand and  maybe we won’t listen to another Rihanna’s smash hit until she releases a new album, we only hope that Rude Boy’s success would be enough to remember her until the next album, cause certainly, if she doesn’t go back to the “Umbrella” era, she can be sure that Lady GaGa and Kesha will lead the charts instead of her (as she used to). (And I keep wondering, why does she want a Rude Boy? Didn’t she understand what happened with Chris, and damn, he was rude… very rude)
