New Track: Katy Perry – Rise

Katy Perry is back with new music and in charge now for the themesong of the Rio Olympics 2016. I am not sure if this is also the lead single of her untitled album but who cares, it is Katy! Haha.

“Rise” which is an uplifting power pop tune is a perfect fit for the Olympics especially with its theme. I just wish it is more hook-laiden track but I digress.

Check out the song below:

New Track: Britney Spears (ft. G-Eazy) – Make Me

Britney Spears has been performing on Vegas doing her sold out shows. After her let ys say not so successful collaboration with Iggy Azalea (“Pretty Girls” anyone?), Britney is making a comeback with a really better tune. “Make Me”, another collaboration, is an R&B, EDM infused single that celebrates Britney’s sweet voice. No, this isn’t extravagant or bubblegum pop tune like “Toxic” or “Sometimes” or “Circus” but I actually like this. The backtrack reminds me of Taylor Swift/B.O.B’s “Both of us” but I digress. The infusion of G-Eazy’s rap also added texture on this single.

Check out the song below:

New Track: Rihanna – Sledgehammer

Rihanna has released her newest music video and the music heavyweight has been having a fantastic year and this Star Trek motion picture soundtrack will for sure be part of her growing musical credentials. The single entitled “Sledgehammer” is a midtempo – ballad that allows Rihanna to be more vulnerable and vocally inspired.

Check out the video and single below:

Cover: Boyce Avenue – Cheap Thrills

Boyce Avenue is on a roll no? They have been uploading covers and covers and covers and covers on their youtube channel. This time, the band – mainly Alejandro – covered Sia’s current radio hit, “Cheap Thrills”. It is a typical stripped down cover from them but it is a lovely vocal one.
