SOTD: No Diggity – Chet Faker

Image

Song: No Diggity
Artist: Chet Faker
Album: Thinking In Textures
Genre: Alternative
In short: Chet Faker’s cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” strips it of its Hip-Hop roots and dresses it up in a dreamy production. A pretty bold move for a new artist. Check it out below.

nuLike: Trouble Me – Diplomats of Solid Sound

Of all the summer shows, Weeds has the best soundtrack songs. The songs that play during the end credits on each episode are always something special, and they rarely fail in making me SoundHound the song and bookmark it for later use.
“Trouble Me” is truly something special, call it Jazz, call it Soul, or just call it pure good music.

nuLike: Yesterday – Toni Braxton

TBMs. Braxton is finally (and officially) back! After many leaked songs, a proper first single saw the light yesterday (no pun intended). The track sounds like a Ryan Tedder track (it could’ve easily been a Leona Lewis’ single). Her voice is stronger than the hard-hitting drums. This is definitely one of the best comeback singles this year (it and Whitney’s Million Dollar Bill).
PS: This post is dedicated to Abdullah at p0ach.

I Didn’t Know My Own Strength – Whitney Houston [New Single]

Whitney Houston - I Didnt Know My Own Strength (FanMade Single Cover) Made by MattI didn’t know what Whitney’s comeback single would exactly sound like, first I thought it will an epic ballad, then thought maybe she’s opting for something more uptempo, say.. a Darkchild track, and so on. When the song finally leaked, I listened to it thinking I’d hate it, but surprise, surprise, I don’t. It’s a ballad, but it’s a very light song, very easy on the ear, nothing too complicated, just her colossal voice accompanied by a piano. The song may not do as well as they’re hoping, but I know I like it, and that’s all the matters, right? yes? good.

Remixtation: Eh, Eh (Nothing Else I Can Say) – Lady GaGa

GaGaI love Bollywood remixes. I love anything indian that touches american music, it automatically upgrades it (Britney’s Me Against The Music, anyone?). This is keeping with the “status-quo”, take a listen and tell me what you think!

List: UK Girlbands Guide, vol.1

GBANDWhenever someone mentions the word girlband, the first thing that must come to your mind is.. well, Spice Girls. The UK have always been the place-to-be if you’re an aspiring girlband, after all, the UK spawned two of the most successful girlbands of our time, Sugababes and Girls Aloud. The success of those two caused the origination of many girlbands, some stayed, some dissolved. I consider UK’s girlbands a dominant players in Pop music, and as a pop lover, I can’t help but love them, maybe some more so than others. I’ve compiled some of my favorite songs of each of the two prominent girlbands, one song from each album. Don’t be fooled by the term “girlband”, they deliver the goods, trust.

nuLike: Bulletproof – La Roux

LaRouxLa Roux is new to the music scene, but not entirely, her first single Quicksand didn’t practically chart in the UK, but her second one “In For The Kill” which was a sleeper’s hit, reaching #2 on the chart. Now she’s ready to take the UK by storm with her new single “Bulletproof”, which I think is much better than the first two combined! Here is the album version and the Zinc remix of the song. I hope this becomes her first #1 hit, it’s very much worthy of being so.

Song Of The Day

krisSong: Heartless (Kanye West Cover)
Artist: Kris Allen
Album: American Idol 8: Kris Allen
In short: When I heard him say he’ll sing Heartless, I was wtf’d a bit, but I have to say he did a GREAT job, it’s even better than the original and any cover version, I didn’t know those were the lyrics of the song when Kanye sang it, so kudos Kris!
