hit or miss?

ERYKAH BADU – WINDOW SEAT (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Check out the brilliant Erykah Badu’s new single and video Window Seat. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss? Check out Erykah’s tweet’s about the video below… Erm…there were children present….. hmmm okay…..  “Controversial exploits all done in the name of art”. But I have a feeling that Erykah is telling porkies about the making of this video…. I love the track though.  Via PunchBowlBlog

VIDEO: R-KELLY – ECHO

R.Kelly has released the video to his new single Echo via Twitter. You would have thought that after the trial and the “not guilty” verdict that Kelly would continue to enjoy hit after hit. But the hit records have dried up, interest has cooled to an icy chill, and now he’s resorted to releasing a low budget video on Twitter. I’m sure there’s a good explanation for this though…. Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

VIDEO: USHER FT NICKI MINAJ – LIL FREAK

Is this what it’s come to Usher??? I remember when this man used to be a class act. Now he’s singing about threesomes/group sex and working with the likes of the ATROCIOUS Nicki Minaj. The world really is coming to an end. Usher is struggling right now and doesn’t seem to know which direction to take career wise. This explains the ill-advised collaborations, the quality of the new music and his image at present. That terrible collaboration with Will.IAM and now this just saddens me. He is dumbing []

UK MUSIC: MIKEL AMEEN – TAG TAG 2 BANG BANG

Mikel Ameen is related to actor Aml Ameen, I think he might be his younger brother. Anyway Mikel, like so many others out there these days, is an aspiring rapper and recently dropped the track Tag Tag 2 Bang  Bang. Check out the video below. I thought we had moved on from the old tired council estate back drops in videos? And who is that guy standing next to him/trailing behind him? Why is he there? What is his purpose? The video gets a thumbs down from []

UK MUSIC: DIVAGEEK – ‘SUNDAY’

Talented songstress Vula and producer Ben Jones have come together to form DivaGeek and have released their first track, ‘Sunday’. As far as I am concerned Vula (who also sings for Basement Jaxx) should be enjoying the same solo success and support that Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone and Duffy (to name a few) have all enjoyed in this country and overseas. Industry executives should have embraced this woman years ago. Vula ain’t no joke! Vula can SING! But we all know how it works in this country…… Anyway check []

UK MUSIC: H-BOOGIE FT GET FAR – ‘THE RADIO’

Singer H-Boogie (rapper/singer Estelle’s younger sister) teams up with Italian DJ Get Far on her debut single The Radio. The Radio will be released on the 17th May via Island Records. H-Boogie recently collaborated with rapper Bashy on the single Your Wish Is My Command, and also appeared on T2’s Better Off As Friends. This track is suger sweet pop, mainstream and not my cup of tea. …… It will go a long way! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss???

UK MUSIC: SELAH FT SADIE AMA & MS BRATZ – WOMAN’S WORLD

‘Woman’s World’ is produced by British producer DaVinche, and I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard the track. I really like it. Selah and Sadie impress but the track could have done without Ms Bratz. I don’t think it needed the rap. When will people realise that not every song out their needs to have a guest rapper? All in all though I give ‘Woman’s World’ the thumbs up! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?

NEW MUSIC: DRAKE – ‘OVER’

Check out the over-rated Drake’s new single ‘Over’. I still fail to understand what all the fuss is about. What is so fantastic about this man? People seem to be wetting themselves over his latest musical effort, when in fact the track is mediocre at best! I’m sorry but everytime I see Drake’s face I remember what the great Public Enemy taught me all those years ago…. “DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE!”. Your thoughts please. Hit or miss?
