When a country version of “Mr. Know It All” started circulating a few weeks ago, no one really knew what was going on. The sleeper hit, which eventually managed to reach top 10 in the Billboard charts, was already on its way down the charts when the countrified version appeared. Fans, myself included, really liked the new version though and wondered if it will ever be released on iTunes.
Until today, I thought Marina & The Diamonds was some sort of an indie goddess who might give Lana Del Rey a run for her money.
I’ve read about this girl for a while now but just haven’t had the chance to listen to her stuff. Until today.
After giving Rihanna the biggest hit of her career, Calvin Harris is now ready to take the spotlight. The 28-year old DJ just premiered his single “Let’s Go”, and it is a total club banger.
Featuring RnB artist Ne-Yo, this track is clearly meant for radio — the build up to the chorus, the faster pace in the chorus, and the slow down in the bridge are all things you’d expect from the biggest dance hits of today.
For a show that is watched yearly by millions, American Idol really hasn’t given way to that many superstars. I mean, sure, there’s Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Hudson, but for the most part, the show hasn’t given us superstars consistently year after year.
You know, I was never a big John Mayer fan until his last album. I’m usually not into acoustic stuff, but I thought Battle Studies was a fantastic album. It walked that fine line between country, pop, and rock. “Half of My Heart” is my fave from that album — the melodic chorus and Mayer’s harmonies with Taylor Swift in that song actually works.
“Shadow Days”, John Mayer’s newest single, is not quite what I expected, but I absolutely love it.
Earlier this week, the most commercially successful American Idol in the U.S., Carrie Underwood, released her newest single “Good Girl”. I absolutely love this song.
