UK MUSIC: TALEY RILEY – HUMANOID

First of all let me thank Social Writers Blog for bringing singer/songwriter Taley Riley to my attention, who apparently co-wrote Chipmunk’s number 1 classic Oopsy Daisy. Humanoid is Taley’s debut single and I’m sorry but Taley is just a Taio Cruz clone. His image.. his sound.. that’s Taio! But the track is kind of catchy. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

NEW MUSIC: KANYE WEST FT JAY-Z, RICK ROSS, BON IVER, CHARLIE WILSON AND NICKI MINAJ – MONSTER

First off I have no idea who Bon Iver is and secondly why does  Nicki insist on rapping with a ‘Jamaican’ accent? Just leave it alone Nicki.  Stop making a mockery out of the Jamaican accent. The delusional keep saying  “Nicki killed it” on Monster. Erm.. no she didn’t! She sounds like she should be locked up in a padded cell. The woman sounds demented. As for the track.. well its nothing to write home about. It’s just a bunch of artists []

UK MUSIC: SWAY FT AKON – JUST A MATTER OF TIME

UK rapper Sway is back with the single Just A Matter O f Time featuring Akon. Okay so I know Sway has never rapped in an American accent, but why does he sound a bit like Young Jeezy on this track?

WYCLEF JEAN RELEASES NEW TRACK IN PROTEST AGAINST HIS REJECTION TO RUN AS PRESIDENT OF HAITI

It seems that musician and wannabe politician Wyclef Jean is having a hard time accepting his rejection as a presidential candidate for Haiti’s November election. To cut a long story short Wyclef’s bid was rejected because the Haitian constitution requires candidates to have lived in the country for five years prior to an election. The former Fugees star hasn’t lived in the country for years and is therefore ineligible to run. Wyclef, however, isn’t taking the news lying down and according to Punchbowl Blog is blaming outgoing President Rene Preval of []
