Danish DJ Kato teams up with Bajan singer Shontelle to rock the clubs. While it's an ok song, I think Shontelle should've put a little more fire into her lyrics to up this song from mediocre to spectacular. And while her compatriot superstar Rihanna blows us away with fashion, Shontelle looks a little old-fashioned. I could suggest some shops in Copenhagen which would up your game, if you need me, just call...
So here's my two euro-cents on the 2013 ESC: I think Denmark is going to win this thing, Emmelie De Forest has all the ingredients: catchy chorus, irish wistles and enough repetition to get this song firmly stuck in your mind so you can't but vote for it. The other advantage is that the overall quality is appalling that it's easy to stick out with an even remotely palatable song. The other two songs that I could actually find the courage to listen again are the Irish and Slovenian entries by Ryan Dolan and Hannah respectively. They're actually quite well put together. Ireland's song could easily be in last year's charts and it's kind of a "Save The World" clone. Hannah's song does sound too much like "Running Up That Hill" by Kate Bush, and she will probably end low, since Slovenia has no allies. That was my prediction and we'll see what happens in may!
18 years ago Ms. Sannie Carlson released the song "Saturday Night", and this is the first time since that day she has ever done anything different than Eurodance. I'm happy Whigfield has finally moved on from her early career and shows us a new side. I'm not sure about the video though, 3 minutes of driving backwards reading letters gave me acute nausea...
While I don't think either song is her best work, it's always nice to see some new Medina songs on the scene. The foulmouthed "Boring" has been out for a whie but has been available only in Germany, and the new Danish "Har Du Glemt" track has just been released. It's clear to see a lot of investment is going into this Danish belle, and it's eye-candy for us!
All i can say is WOW. Medina's new single for the German market is "Happening" aka "Kl. 10", and the video is STUNNING. Much better than the original Danish. Even the english translation is very convincing, and I believe this song is going to be BIG. And did I mention her love interest is H-O-T? Watch it now!
For those lucky enough to live in the regions allowed to watch this video: ENJOY IT! I'll include one available universally ASAP. Right now I'm unable to judge this video because they don't let me see it!!!
Post ed. While the English version of the song lost in strength with respect to the Danish version. The video is a lot more relatable. Even though it's kinda wierd how the video ends, there's no real explanation for the chain of events...
Medina made one of the best albums of 2011, and she continues to celebrate it into 2012. Looking at this video I'd gladly spend "12 days" with Medina. Thinking it's the 4th single off the album "For Altid" the visuals are STUNNING. I did hope for new material, but this song is worth releasing as a single.
I'm kinda surprised to see this new video of Aura pop up so short after her previous "Geronimo" was released. Also her German label is always so jealous of her stuff and banning it from the public channels immediately. What did we learn from Aura after 3 videos? She just LOVES shoes and fashion.
I wish I loved this video as much as I like the song. Cus with this horrendous make-up they kinda look like transvestites in their Marlies Dekkers bras. And it's kind of a rip-off of Rihanna's "You Da One". The song on itself is very strong and reminds me of the Pussycat Dolls back in they heyday.
Talking about hot... Just kidding. This music is not exactly my cup of tea, but Danish language is just very entertaining to me (don't get me wrong, my aunt is Danish). It just makes me smile I guess... BTW These past 2 videos were both shot at Venice Beach LA, kinda coincidence right...
#5 Ajda Pekkan - Farkın Bu
She may be called the "Dinosaur" of Turkish pop music, but she sure isn't fossilized just yet! With this year's best selling album in Turkey (160 000 copies) she solidified her spot on the top. It's a very strong album both musically and vocally. A MUST have!
#4 Medina - For Altid
Before this album I thought Medina was sort of one-note, but she really grew and showed her versatility on this album. More than just dance, also soul.
#3 Lady GaGa - Born This Way
At first listen, I wasn't a fan of this album, but once you come to understand the meaning of it, it's really great. It's a collection of very powerful songs that tell a real story, and for me it's the proof that Lady GaGa is more than just a gimmick.
#2 September - Love CPR
This highly anticipated albums turned out as one of my most played albums EVER. Ofcourse my absolute favorites are "Mikrofonkåt" and "Kärlikens Tungen" but the other 15 songs are also worth listening hundreds of times.
#1 Kelly Rowland - Here I Am
This is THE most underrated album of 2011, but it's my favorite album of this year because it really shows how much Kelly Rowland has grown as a performer and as a woman. From club bangers to balads, Kelly can pull it off!
Rihanna - We Found Love
SEREBRO - Давай держаться за руки
Mylène Farmer - Lonely Lisa
Gülşen - Sözde Ayrılık
Medina - For Altid
Medina is back, and has the color hair that looks so good on her. This electro balad is very well done. Usually balads for dance artist tend to come out kinda sloppy (September's "Walk Away") but she really hit the mark!
Hello, I'm MIXKULA, and I'm sick and tired of hearing Pokerface rip-offs! PEOPLE it's mother-freaking 2011, not 2000-and fucking-8! RedOne made Gaga's song even way before it was released, so PLEASE come up with something NEW! Is it too much to ask for musical innovation after 4 years?
One remark must be made of the identical remake by the Danish girls, their "voices" are more present.
In her new song, very much similar to her previous songs, Medina gives us just a littlebit more passion. The video is very nice, but let's state it again, she's much better dark-haired.
I'm really starting to love scandinavian dance songs in the original language. After September's "Mikrofonkåt" and Medina's "Ensom" there's a new one by Nadia Malm, from Denmark. A fresh breeze for these hot summer days.
Danish Lady GaGa lookalike Medina released her new single "Gutter" a nice dance track with a serious undertone. Personally I'd like to see a Danish version of the song, because her voice comes out much better (plus she had great succes with her Danish-language singles in Denmark). Her latest make-over was not very complimenting and I would really like to see her go back to black. See the before and after:
