“Me, Myself & I” by G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha

Star complex has perplexed me until this time. Having achieved  fame at the height of their career, celebrities tend to break away from the limelight and cry out privacy. Seriously?! The price of fame is so high that anyone who yearns for it should be all up for it whether or not he only wants…

“No” by Meghan Trainor

She was all about the bass, now Meghan is refusing to say yes. It is amazing to see plus size ladies who are oozing with confidence yet completely oblivious to what other people might think. Meghan Trainor pushes her limit a little bit far this time with her latest single “No” from her second album….

“Panda” by Desiigner

If imitation is the greatest form of flattery, then 18-year old MC Desiigner just bloated rapper superstar Future’s heart. Rapper rookie Desiigner gains followers and streaming downloads with his breakout hip-hop “Panda” which sounds and rolls like Future’s songs though it heavily borrows from Kanye’s song “Pt. 2”. While people think that imitating the glib…

“Don’t Let me Down” by The Chainsmokers feat. Daya

The Chainsmokers have rolled out their gravity-defying official video on YouTube for their chart-climbing electro-pop “Don’t Let Me Down” featuring breakout artist Daya. The duo who brought us “Roses” and “Selfie” are enjoying the 14th spot on Billboard’s roster of hottest 100 and dominated its hot dance list, thanks to the concurrent rise of Daya…

“Dangerous Woman” by Ariana Grande

She’s a sweet girl no more. And she needs no permission. Ariana Grande gets riskier with every move she makes. In her latest stint, she trades her peri-Nickelodeon pony-tailed school girl image for a sexy soul siren persona all set to play some dangerous roulettes. She first  upped the ante when she completed the triumvirate…

“Hide Away” by Daya

Daya’s debut hit song, Hide Away,  is  a good testament that there are still girls who like the old school romantic love no matter how elusive that may be nowadays. The song which peaked no. 23 in the Billboard hit chart is a breath of fresh air considering that  we are constantly flooded with songs…

“Lush Life” by Zara Larsson

Electropop seems to be Swedish’s specialty as this beautiful country dishes out another phenomenal gem via 18-year old  Zara Larsson. Zara’s hit song “Lush Life”  is a pop song peppered with youthful tempo one could not resist. The remixed version with Tinie Tempah added lushness to the Shakira-influenced (sorry to compare, ladies) chart-topper which has…

“Youth” by Troye Sivan

After enjoying success of his norm-defying Blue Neighborhood trilogy on YouTube, fast-rising Aussie pop singer-songwriter Troye Sivan is gaining his way through the hot 100 Billboard chart for the first time with his latest release, “Youth”. I completely understand how Troye wanted to assert himself not just with his personal conviction but also in his…

“I Took a Pill in Ibiza” by Mike Posner

Infected 5/21/2016 AT NIGHT, ALONE Mike Posner’s new album is not a hard pill to swallow. The album kicks off with aw-shucks ballads of heart-wrenching lyrical depth that progresses into EDM-charged commercial hits like a SeeB’s remix on “I Took a Pill in Ibiza”. Posner showcases reminiscence of his “Cooler Than Me” with distinct musical…

“Say You Do” by Sigala feat. Imani and DJ Fresh

British DJ Bruce Fielder who is also professionally known as Sigala is quite making waves these days with songs which interpolate tracks from hit songs in the past. Now I sound like I’m giving the 6 o’clock news. Sorry, force of habit! Here we go, du du du dum du du du dum…sorry I was…

“Roses” by The Chainsmokers feat. Rozes

I got introduced to Electronic Dance Music late last year when a couple of teenagers recommended that I should play the song “#Selfie” during one get-together. Well, it was okay but not my kind of music, I would say. But somehow you gotta make these young people happy by giving them a nod of “yeah-I-feel-ya” even…

“Work” by Rihanna feat. Drake

I find Rihanna’s musical style too unique not to get noticed even if the lyrics are just regurgitating words like “Work”. I thought it’s going to be an anthem for laborers to get to work without pay. Damn! I was wrong again. Temperature’s rising as the song debuted no. 1 on Billboard’s hottest 100 and…
