"Brand New Flava In Your Ear"

Some new music coming at ya!

1) Musiq Soulchild- So Beautiful: The title describes the song perfectly; it is "So Beautiful!" His video is just as good! I wish a guy would romantically take pictures of me! Anyone? Anyways, this is another song to add to your list to slow dance to with your special one.

2) Lily Allen- The Fear: Yeah! Music that criticizes the whole celebrity and Hollywood system! The lyrics are done intelligently with a little humor in it. More artists should be like Lily and stand up and say how ridiculous it is and more of the public should realize how ridiculous it is. Two thumbs up for Lily!

3) Demi Lovato- Don't Forget: I know what your thinking-- another Disney star. But Demi is not your typical Disney star; she can really sing and is a very mature and deep songwriter (Just listen to "La La Land") On numerous occasions, she has even dissed Disney (She said in an interview that Disney "has no tears," as in it is Happy-land). I love the song and the video, especially because it is so emotional! By the end of the video, I wanted to cry along with Demi. Also proving that she is a really great actress!

4) Kid Cudi- Day and Night: The first time I heard this song, it had a faster beat and the video took place in a supermarket. Definitely wrong choices for this song. Fortunately, Cudi slowed down the beat and gave the video an urban cartoon vibe. Now, I love the laid-back, trip-hop style he has and I can see why Kanye signed him to his label!

5) P.O.S.- Optimist: I love the Alternative Hip-hop that is coming out. This song is like Stomp meets the Hood! Now there is some Hip-hop that actually says something, including positive lyrics, and Hip-hop that is innovative; I am loving it!

I agree. Demi isn't the typical Disney darling. and what's even better, she actually does have an amazing voice (and UNIQUE). you know the part in la la land when she says "who said i can't be single and have to go out and mingle, baby that's not me" the way she sang that "baby" in the line, no one has a voice like that. great singer. kind of reminds me of hayley from paramore.
