Kanye West featuring Young Jeezy
808s & Heartbreak
On a Sunday morning, I was in my dad’s lorry when this came on.

He asked whether is this some sorta chant-like kinda song.

In embarrassment, I switched to another stereo channel.

Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)
Pixie Lott
Turn It Up

This is #1 on a music channel’s countdown? Seriously, nothing beats blind following of trends. As much as I don’t want the UK invasion to end, idiotic media following is another devastating situation.

And she is so filed under “Case Study: Holly Valance – The Rise & Fall Of A Pop Star”.

Sweet Dreams
I Am… Sasha Fierce

Pro: She is venturing into electropop, which is a good thing.

Con: As much as she tries, this isn’t as catchy as any released track off the previous album.

Pro: At least she is trying, re-inventing.

Con: Why is she wearing a similiar outfit with Gaga?

Before The Worst
The Script
The Script

When first single “We Cry” hit the airwaves, I thought that music is promised with some kinda pop/street hip-hop friendly outfit.

I was sooooo wrong.

They’re just a pop band full of ballads that Perez approves of! What can be worse than that?

Evacuate The Dancefloor
Cascada featuring Calprit
Evacuate The Dancefloor

Otherwise known as the trash that prevented Michael Jackson from having a posthumous UK #1. Also can be called MJ’s fans newfound enemy who tried to suck it up with the lead wearing a MJ band on the day it happened.

But it is strangely groovy. This can’t be happening! I can’t be like this!

Daniel Merriweather
Love & War

This is straight-up biaseness, so beware.

Admittedly, I had questions on the first listen on this single release. But the more plays, the more I fell in love with it. Merriweather seemed to be pouring all his heartfelt emotions into this heartbreaking track.

And doesn’t he look like a modern-day Elvis? I told you I was biased!

Flo Rida featuring Nelly Furtado

Someone please save Furtado from trashville soon enough. In the video, she is animated like a Sims character in a cheapskate manner.

Why do I get a vibe that Flo is releasing singles to get women in his pants?
