Album Review: Katy Perry: Teenage Dream

 

This post was originally set to be posted on August 25, but I didn't do it, don't know why, so I'm posting it today! The album was released on August 24, 2010, being three singles released to date, "California Gurls", "Teenage Dream" and "Firewrok". Number one in many countries and achieving Gold and Platinum certifications this album won't dissapoint ...

Music Video: Katy Perry: Firework


"Firework" will serve as Katy's third single from her sophomore album, "Teenage Dream". "Firework" was released on October 26, 2010. The music video premiered on October 28. I really, really, really like this song. It's a simple but deep song! Crazy vocals and beautiful melody. The video is actually beautiful! I love the fireworks and the message of this song and video! And Katy is incredible cute!

Music Video: Shayne Ward: Gotta Be Somebody + Album Cover



Ward's lead single from his new album "Obsession", due out November 15, is a cover of Nickelback's orignal version from 2008.  It will be released on November 7, 2010, being performed on The X Factor on November 6 (looking forward to it!, maybe Alex and him will perform together ... ). Even tough many people are a bit pissed that the lead single isn't even his own song, this cover is really good! I consider his first two albums a big dissapointment, they were good to dance, but not to just listen them ... But this song is excellent, and I think the album will be excellent also! And Shayne looks hot in the video! I wonder why he was half naked nearly all of it? ...

Music Video: Alexandra Burke: The Silence



"The Silence" is stated to be Alexandra's fifth single, which will be released in December, from her debut album, "Overcome". The album will be re-released featuring this new version of "The Silence", with it's music video, which premiered on October 27, as well as three new songs. Alex will be performing on The X Factor also later in the competition!! Yes! I was going to say that this video needed more drama but it's as dramatic as it can get! Alex's faces and massive notes are incredible and her anger is really intense. I didn't even care that it is on black and white! The beggining might have been a little boring but the last part was the bomb! This song is even better than the orignial record, much more epic ... I'm anxious for her XF appearance ...

Music Video: Olly Murs: Thinking Of Me



Olly Murs might have lost to Joe McElderry on the XF S6, but hey, who said winning is all? Olly, who was signed by Syco/Epic, is about to release his debut album, on November 29 being the new single "Thinking of Me" released on November 21. It's not what you would expect for the former XF finalist. Olly is scrapping his Robbie William-ish sound and going for a more jazzy route. The songs feels old, like a 80s tune, but it's so good! I love the way his voice sounds and that video is amazing! The ice-cream truck is really kewl and those movements were awesome, although they looked totally fake ...

Todrick Hall is probably one of the most hated and controversial contestant on American Idol.

Now, Todrick is trying to revindicate himself by releasing songs against bullying and discrimination, and, as much as you hate him, you cannot say you hate this song! It's really beautiful and he sings it superbly! Why didn't you sing like this on Idol man?!

Catching Up With: Jaap: Debut Single, Walk To The Other Side



Since winning the latest season of the X Factor Netherlands, which I'll be covering, Jaap has been in the works to getting his first album out. Being signed by Sony BMG, Jaap has already released two singles, his winner's song, "Don't Stop Believing" and the brand new "Walk To The Other Side". The new single will be released on October 29, 2010. This song is actually really cool! His vocals are spot on and the song is instantely catchy. It feels like jazz at the beggining but then it feels like mainstream rock. He was the best vocalist on his XF season, so it wasn't surprise he won but this song is absolutely amazing! I can't be more anxious for his album now ...

Tove's been doing great since Idol. She signed with Epic, her first single, "Million Pieces" was a succes and now she's getting ready to release her debut album! The eponymous album will be realeased on November 12 and as we wait for it, we have this new song, titled "White Light Moment". Altough it's a clip of only less than 2 minutes, we can really aprreciate how Tove sounds! Her vocals are incredible and really quircky, and I'm really digging her sound ... Plus, that cover looks beautiful, this album will be EPIC!

Catching Up With: rebound!













Many of you may be thinking right now who the hell are they ... well, they are rebound! This guys are no stranger for swedishs, in fact, they were both contestants on the last Idol season, on 2009. Eddie Razaz and Rabih Jaber, who finished 6th and 7th respectively, you can check my last season recap HERE. Since then, both friends joined forces to create rebound!. And glad they did ... The guys were signed by Sony BMG and released their first single, Hurricane, on April 12, 2010, which charted #1 on the Swedish Charts.  "Not Helpless" is their second single, released on August 9, 2010. I really liked them on Idol but didn't think they will made it as solists, so this group thing is a great idea ... Their sound is really RnB with some rap and pop influences. Their debut album is set to be out late this year or early the next one. I'm really enjoying this peeps ...

Listen and buy "Hurricane" and "Not Helpless" after the JUMP ...

Music Video: Joe McElderry: Ambitions


Finally!! "Ambitions" is here! The current title-holder of the X Factor is getting ready to release his debut, "Wide Awake" on October 25, and in the meantime, he's just released a single! "Ambitions" was released on October 8 and it is a cover of Donkeyboy's original version. The music video, which was directed by Nigel Dick, premiered on September 23. The song was also featured on the first result show of this year's X Factor. The song is very Mika but I still can feel Joe's particular tone in this. It's not what I really expected but I like it. It's original and different and not boring as those classic pop tunes. The video is also good and pretty enjoyable, plus it has a really good director.  Let's hope the album is as fresh as this song is ....

Music Video: Shakira: Loca



"Loca" is Shakira's lead single of her upcoming album "Sale el Sol", stated for release on October 15. The song features Dizzee Rascal and was released on September 1. The music video, which premiered on September 29, was filmed in Barcelona, Spain and features a really sexy Shakira along with Dizzee. The song is very Shakira. It has that latin pop sound but nothing more. It's not really unique, a pretty cliche song I'll say. But it's a fun song and a fun video. I want to move and dance to this song and I guess that was the idea with this video ...

Catching Up With: Paige Cook


Paige Cook isn't a famous artist, yet. This sweet girl first catched my attention on YouTube, where she uploads her covers. I contacted her and I did an interview to her, which you can check HERE. Since then, Paige has released her first EP independently which is titled "Unplugged Heart". The EP was released on July 20, 2010 and features 6 original songs by her. The album has a really folky/acoustic vibe but it could be also considered a soft pop, maybe in the Sara Bareilles vibe. It's really catchy and I strongly recommend buying it. Apart from releasing her first EP, Paige has auditioned for this season of American Idol and she's got all my support! This talent shouldn't be wasted ...

Music Video: Brandon Flowers: Only the Young



Firstly I've to say that my opinions will be biased as Brandon is one of my top arists at the moment. "Only the Young" is his second solo single, which will be released on December 6, 2010. The music video premiered on October 5, 2010 and was directed by Sophie Muller. This is one of my favourites songs of his album, Flamingo, which was released on September 3 and will be reviewed later this week on the blog. The video is so amazing!!!! The fire circle, Brandon's slow dancing, the fog, the lights! Terrific! And the song is so good! Beautiful lyrics and rythm. The part with the dancers falling from the roof is kewl! My only bad comment will be that the video quality isn't that good, but, it's amazing! A magical journey I'll say .... I told you I was biased ...
