Rihanna – “Hard” (feat. Young Jeezy)

leave a comment »

“I’m so hard!” What?! I’m just singing the chorus! So, Rihanna’s video for “Hard” has been released and its oozing Girl Power and sexiness. Now some of it seems to be forced, but there’s only so much forcing that can be done. The rest is all Rihanna. Whether she’s wearing porcupine shoulder pads, or black tape on her tatas, or channeling Minnie Mouse while straddling a canon, Rihanna does a good job personifying “Hard”ness.

By the way did I mention that Jeezy is in it too?

Check out the video and some stills.

Vampire Weekend- “White Sky” Listen to it here.

Contra, Vampire Weekend’s second album, will be released on January 12, 2010, but it seems like before it is even leaked the band will hand out all the songs. Personally, I’m not complaining because it fixes my two issues: one, my love for Vampire Weekend and two, my hate for waiting. The only issue is the newest track that they gave up isn’t really “new” at all. If you are a follower of Vampire Weekend you would know that “White Sky” has been played by VW through festivals and concerts, which is why it sounds more like their debut  album than “Cousins” or “Horchata.” With an arpeggiated piano chord and plinky guitar “White Sky” soars as the best “leak” from Contra yet.

Mary J Blige Ft. Jazmine Sullivan- “Gonna Make it” Listen to it here.

When I first heard this song, I immediately played 20 other times, which shows how quickly this song gets implanted into your membrane. The chorus is reminiscent to “this is the song that never ends”, but regardless I can see this being a number one for Mary J Blige. It was almost genius to have Jazmine Sullivan on this track; the passing of the torch from one “soul sista” to another. (By the way while typing this up, I’ve listened to it 3 times more).

Rihanna+GQ

leave a comment »

There’s not much to say about Rihanna. She seems to be getting more attractive (atleast to me) as time passes. 2009 has been Rihanna’s year. It didn’t start off as a good year, for obvious reasons, but by the end of 2009 she seems back to the old Rih Rih and on top of the world. Thankfully, she doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon, as she welcomes us to 2010 with the help of GQ.

La Blogotheque + Phoenix “1901”

leave a comment »

Take a look at this video and you’ll realize why Phoenix has one of the top albums of 2009 in Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. La Blogotheque teamed up the french group to record an impromptu performance in (where else?) France.

The acoustic “1901” sounds as good if not better than the heavier version, but what makes this video shine is the location. There is something eerily romantic about the gathering of the passing by locals trying to figure out what’s going on and why this French band is serenading these newlyweds.

“Where’s Wayne”- Young Money

leave a comment »

I had a previous post about Young Money’s “Bedrock” video. Now in that post I’m not quite sure if I was able to portray my love for that song. When I had first heard it, I was excited because it was everything I never thought it would be. It was fun, there wasn’t cussing every 2 seconds like there was in “Every Girl” and I liked the lyricism of most of the players (Sorry, Gudda Gudda).

But there is one problem. The radio. I decided to switch from the “All Christmas” radio station and try out our urban radio station (aka 107.9). Mistake. The played “Bedrock” after every other song. So to say the least, I”m not a fan of it anymore.lol.

That is why I was ecstatic when I found a new Young Money track out aka “Where’s Wayne”. The ringleader isn’t on the track but his subjects do a good job holding it down though.
