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: 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.

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.

nuLike: Free – Gavin DeGraw

gavin1Those who’re not familiar with Gavin DeGraw, he posses one of the most emotion-filled voices I have ever heard, this song is everything I wanted him to do, stripped down to almost nothing, and him singing his heart out with lyrics so beautiful, it could make you cry, if you’re the crying type that is, hehe. My favorite bit:
I’m the fight and the dance
I am heartbreak and romance
The feather and the stone
I feel crowded and alone

And I wanna be free
Wind in my hair
Salt on my skin
Sun in the air
I have to feel love
Holding on me
I’ll give you everything that you would ever need
