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 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.

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 – “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)

Review On Adam Lambert’s Song – “Whataya Want From Me”

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , on May 1, 2010 by KammusiK

This is the new and second single released from his debut album “For Your Entretainment”, wich his first single from it failed to become a succes, but hit or not hit, “Whataya Want From Me” prooves that he can do better than his annoying first single. “WTFM” is a phenomenal pop-rock song that shows a vocal growth and control, is not Lambert’s typical rough voice, he is keeping it away for this time, and the tone he uses in “Whataya Want From Me” is excepcional, making this a wonderful, wonderful song. It is clear that Lambert is not that interested in making tpyical radio songs, he tries to make it a little less commercial, but that does not mean the track is bad, if this doesn’t get any airplay, I won’t be upset, it is the kind of those personal pieces, and not for anyone to sing it. If we didn’t know a little too much this American Idol runner up, and we only listen to this, we wouldn’t realize that he’s actually gay.
