CiCiSong: Work (Feat. Missy Elliott)
Artist: Ciara
Album: Fantasy Ride
In short: The new single from Ciara features Missy Elliott, and we all know they do great on songs together (1,2 Step, Lose Control..), this one is no different, it’s sure to set the clubs on fire, the chorus is very catchy and I can actually see Kuwaiti women dancing to it in weddings lol.

LOVELIFEUKULELEWho? Sophie Madeleine. Genre? Folk/Acoustic. About: Sophie hails from Brighton, and bright she is, her debut album LOVE.LIFE.UKULELE was released not so long ago, and it shows so much promise. Its strength is its simplicity and straight-forwardness.  I have picked 3 songs from the album to highlight, first of all, You’re My Favorite, which is the first song I heard and was the one that got me “hooked”, it’s a simple song with nothing but a tender voice, acoustic guitar, an accordion, and lush lyrics. I Just Can’t Stop Myself (From Writing Love Songs About You), if the title didn’t intrigue you, I don’t know what will. One Kiss Too Many is the one of the bet moments on the album, her voice’s tenderness will you have surrendered and all ears. Download the three songs below, like them, love them, buy the album, love it.

Sophie Madeleine:
You’re My Favorite
I Just Can’t Stop Myself (From Writing Love Songs About You)

MCSong: Circles
Artist: Mariah Carey
Album: The Emancipation Of Mimi
In short: One of the best moments on Mimi. I wish she’d do more of this, and less of the “whisper register” that she’s now working on. I still hate the new album’s title and think it’s beyond silly, even for Mariah.

Song Of The Day

krisSong: Heartless (Kanye West Cover)
Artist: Kris Allen
Album: American Idol 8: Kris Allen
In short: When I heard him say he’ll sing Heartless, I was wtf’d a bit, but I have to say he did a GREAT job, it’s even better than the original and any cover version, I didn’t know those were the lyrics of the song when Kanye sang it, so kudos Kris!

Lyrics: Earreading [13]

sandalsI’m being dragged down, down by the hand
The hand of a golden giant man
He’s crushing my knuckles and splitting my skin
He says he will let go if only I ask it of him
He says girl it’s your call, you wanna fly you wanna fall?
So I shout I wanna get away from you as fast as I can
I tell my feet to move it, I hope they have a plan
“-SiA’s “Little Black Sandals

kvI fell in love with Kate Voegele when I heard “No Good” from her previous album, eversince I listened to everything she released after that album, there have been some soundtrack songs, some random songs here and there, some are good, some aren’t. Here’s her first single from her upcoming album. It’s everything I wanted from her and more. I like me some nice pop/rock songs that aren’t by anything Disney (I see you Demi, Miley, and every new robot they produce).

bvBria Valente, Prince’s protégé released her debut album amongst his 3-Disc collection of Lotusflow3r, MPLSOUND, and her album of the set Elixer, this song stood out INSTANTLY, something about the clean production and her lovely voice pulled me by my ears and me LISTEN. If you liked Solange’s album, Cassie’s new single, Amy Winehouse’s production on Back to Black, then get this. If you were ever a fan of Prince, get this.
