nuLike: Fight For This Love – Cheryl Cole

CherylI’ve written about it here, but now the real thing has leaked, full HQ and all. To be honest I hated it at first, but it has tendency to stick in one’s mind, some 10 listens or so, I like it. Long story short, it’s a grower.
I hope she has better things up her sleeve. Get it girl.

NuLike: Bad Boys (Feat. Flo-Rida) – Alexandra Burke

VampyLess than a year after winning the fifth series of the hit UK show The X Factor, Alexandra Burke is back on the scene with a blazing new tune. I will not talk much about the song, but all you need to know is that the song is a hard hitting uptempo number that features A LOT of sirens (sometimes annoying), and a clap along breakdown towards the end. Is it good though? Yes. Is it that good? No.

SOTD: Untouchable – Girls Aloud

GA_UntouchableSong: Untouchable
Artist: Girls Aloud
Album: Out Of Control
Genre: Pop
In short: This song will need a whole week to digest. No 7 minutes have ever sounded this good. Girls Aloud are the supreme girl band on planet earth, having had 20 consecutive Top 10 hits, and surviving 6 years without a change of line-up.

Review: The Hardest Thing – Mica Paris

6450_102551322006_84073717006_2622971_6777678_nArtist: Mica Paris
Song: The Hardest Thing
Release date: August 17
Label: Rhythm Riders

Mica Paris, a name that has been circulating for a long while (22 years to be exact), her name has always come up whenever someone discusses the UK soul scene. I listened to many of her albums trying to understand what the fuss was all about, there were some few hits here and there, but I was still not fully drawn to her music, her voice however has always been exceptional. “The Hardest Thing” came out, and I had to listen to it and see how it fairs, to my surprise it blew me away. Paris channels her inner Chaka Khan on this retro-soul scorcher. The song has a sing-along chorus that’s bound to get stuck in your head for some time. After hearing this song I can honestly say that my appreciation for this UK gem has been fully actualized. Her latest album, the aptly titled Born Again sees her working with hit-maker Brian Rawling as well as having writing credits by UK crooner James Morrison.

nuLike: Never Leave You (Feat. Amelle) – Tinchy Stryder


Woah, woah, and I will never leave ya” is bound to get stuck in your head for the next few days after hearing the song, granted. Tinchy and Amelle are taking over the UK charts, currently at #1 in the midweeks and most likely still be #1 on Sunday when the chart gets published. This is Tinchy’s second #1 (I’m already assuming it is) from his debut album, which is no easy feat for a new artist. Amelle has always had a special place in my heart ever since she joined the Sugababes, and I’m very happy to see her first non-Sugababes project proven fruitful. I just hope this won’t boost her ego too much to leave the group, because frankly, I don’t think the group can survive a fourth line-up.

Remixtation: In For The Kill – La Roux

LaRouxSkream’s Let Get Ravey Remix takes the song to another level, on it’s own. It takes off the punchy beats, and replaces them with an eerie music that suprisingly work well for the song. If you loved the original one but got bored of it, this is for you.

SOTD: Tell Me The Worst – Will Young

WillYoungSong: Tell Me The Worst
Artist: Will Young
Album: Let It Go
In short: A spine tingling song from one of today’s prime Pop males. Lyrically, and vocally this song is spot on.

New Singles, vol.1

newsinglesThe first in the series, this will include a list of upcoming singles, ranging from Folk to Punk.

FineFrenzyBlow Away – A Fine Frenzy [Download]
Ditching the opaque somber sound of her debut album to a more upbeat, folksy  sound similar to that of Colbie Cailat. This is her lead single from her upcoming album titled Bomb in a Birdcage which follows her debut’s title trend (One Cell in the Sea). The album is set for a September release, so.. mark your calenders.

The single is already making big jumps on the charts, it’s very similar to Rihanna, Jordin Sparks, and the likes. There is no denying that the song is, ahem, catchy, very catchy actually.

SOTD: Earthquake – Little Boots

LittleBootsSong: Earthquake
Artist: Little Boots
Album: Hands
In short: First, I’ve decided to ditch the big “Song Of The Day” and opted  for the abbreviation along with the title and artist’s name. This is one of Little Boots finer tracks, and hopefully a future single. The synths are to die for.

Song Of The Day

LeonaLewisSong: Perfect Stranger
Artist: Leona Lewis
Album: Untitled yet.
In short: This is one of the three songs that leaked yesterday, and it is the best of the bunch. I like the idea behind the song (psychotherapy/hypnosis to erase him from her mind). The pre-chorus is “Doctor, doctor, please, are you sure that I won’t recognize him if we should walk right past each other?” one time, and “Doctor, doctor, please guarantee that I won’t fall again for the way he looks so deep into me” the other. I like it, and I really can’t wait for her new album, I’m sure as hell that Simon will not disappoint.
