I’m at home right now chilling and have 20 music channels to watch. Usually I’m glued to MTV base as it has old skool and new urban tunes for me to jiggy to on my sofa. You would think that with all this choice that there would be a mix of music to listen to but nope that ain’t happening. MTV and all the other music channels seem to have their music console stuck on certain artists especially Rhianna.
Rhianna has one those voices that either you love or hate. I’m at that point of hating. It’s jarring and she is looking incredibly daft in her new videos like “what’s my name”. What is with that red hair? Seriously who told her that it would be great idea with her green eyes?
The other overplayed song is Black Eyes Pea “this time” which has a chorus from that dirty dancer tune which I could never stand. The only good bit of that song is when they say “dirty bit”. Ok yeah the song is something you can dance to but man I’ve had enough.
Then there is tinie tempah. I am loving his album right now and cannot diss him too much but the new song with Kelly Rowland (Invincible) is just not one of the songs that should have been released. A better tune is Let Go with Emile Sande. I’m guessing that as Emile isn’t a big megastar as Kelly that this song has been passed for this crap. Even the record company don’t rate it that much as they couldn’t be bothered to create a proper video. It’s a yawn fest.
The girl who is going to be the big new artist according to MTV is Willow Smith. This girl is 10 years old! Shouldn’t she be in the playground rather than whipping her hair around and getting a sore neck. It’s crazy. It’s nearly as bad as Justin Bieber. And she has this funny crystal stuff on her lips. It looks uncomfortable.
I’m trying to not like that G6 song but it is catchy but Ke$ha is on every bloody song when Rhianna isn’t. And what is with that voice box voice with Ke$ha. I’m guessing she has a crap voice in real life.
Other songs touching my nerves in a bad way –
Nicole Scherzinger (or whateva her surname is) – Poison – sounds same as her other songs.
Taio Cruz and Kylie – Higher – the song got nothing. It just doesn’t sound good. Why are they driving around in a 7 series BMW in a car park. It’s weird. Kylie ain’t what she used to be. Time to give up me thinks.
Jay Sean – 2012 – has he forgotten we are only on 2011. Stop being American and come back to your roots boy!
N-Dubz – Girls – actually all of their songs suck. I heard a funny joke the other day – what do you call a girl with two twats?? N-Dubz (ROFL) (thanks to mclean007).
Nelly – Just a dream – zzzzzz
Will I am & Nicki Minaj – god her voice is nearly as bad as Rhianna. And what is with this voice box sound. Slightly redeems itself as it has that cool 80s tune (Video killed the radiostar by the Buggles you young folk! (and no I didn’t Google it)).
On a positive note I am liking Alexis Jordan’s “Happiness” which has been on my airwaves for a few months but seems to be blowing up now. Flor-ida’s “Turn Around” ain’t bad, though shame about the video and all the booty clad women.
Bruno Mars had that amazingly beautiful song last year and I will keep on wishing for someone to sing that to me (yeah i know i dont look like that hawtie in the video but whatever) but the next song aint as catchy and is a bit depressing but he does have a good voice.
There is one good song that is redeeming MTV Base right now which is Katy B and Ms Dynamite’s Lights out. Big up Ms Dynamite and her comeback which is mega news and Katy B has a good voice and that tune is one of those I can see playing loudly in my car or ipod.The video is at the top of this blog for you to listen to while reading this (you see how i care about you lot).
Here is some information on Katy B – I feel like educating you away from Rhianna et al
Finally, although it’s a few months old I’m still grooving to Fuck U and Pass Out. If only more songs were made like that for my ears. Let’s hope that 2011 improves with the music scene and we get new artists instead of the same ole same ole.
