New Music Friday: March

March had its moments. Musically we saw so many different things. Maren Morris had a number one album on iTunes for about a week. Dido had a successful return (overseas). Somehow the Jonas Brothers delivered a chart-topping single. Ariana Grande continues to sell albums in mass quantities even though it’s an unoriginal batch of songs….

New Music Friday – January 2019

On the first single for her third album, La Bella Mafia, Lil’ Kim rapped “I’ve been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump-off”. It’s been a minute (or two) but I’m back. In between finishing grad-school, the holidaze, and a trip to Mexico to start the new year, I’ve been all over…

Ricki-Lee: Unbothered She’s back! I love Ricki-Lee.

After a few years off to…

Ella Mai – Sauce Her debut album is finally out. After the surprise success of her single Boo’d Up, Ella has finally delivered a full album which essentially states her purpose.

NMF! It’s Friday! A great day for multiple reasons and though the world is raining down with bad news, artists are releasing good tunes to keep us emotionally intact for another week. Let’s get to it. Mariah – With You No this isn’t a cover of Jessica Simpson’s biggest hit, With You (though that would…

It’s Friday all over again and I’ve been waiting for this Friday for quite some time. Let’s dive in: Cher – Dancing Queen (album) When I heard Cher was covering ABBA, I was overjoyed. I felt that she would do them justice, would make it fun, and bring these songs up to speed and to…
