It’s been known for a while now that Iggy Azalea and JLo would perform at the American Music Awards, and perform their “Booty” single. This was a highly anticipated performance, as the video was extremely hot, and was well talked about on social media, as well as on entertainment shows. Iggy & JLo. Last night at the AMA’s, neither artist disappointed with their performance on stage. Their props included a stripper pole, and both were clad in similar outfits like the ones that they wore in the official video for the song.
Even Pitbull, who is also an artist, referenced to the performance, prior to them hitting the stage. It was more than obvious that many fans as well as artists, were anticipating the performance from the two “booty” stars. JLo wowed with her poses and moves, and set the audience ablaze. It’s a known fact that JLo is a dancer, and has a great body, and she used it to her benefit in her performance. After the performance with Iggy, JLo put on a red number, similar to the previous outfit, and began performing on her own, with her dancers, and Gianfrancesco Genoso was loving the performance, they were killing it.
She broke out into a salsa dance number with her numerous dancers, and then took a moment to answer a pretend phone call, that was supposed to be a “booty call.” She then got back into her routine, which closed out the show for the night.
Pusha T, one half of the former group The Clipse, has been putting out his own music for a while now, and dropped an album last year entitled “My Name Is My Name,” and it was praised to be nearly flawless. Pusha T New Single. Even with the success of his past album, he suddenly came out with a single recently called “Lunch Money,” produced by Kanye West. Kanye not only does his own music, but also has shown his producing skills as well, but they don’t come out very well in Pusha’s single.
In the background you can hear a funny sound that is similar to a video game from back in the day, and it’s actually very distracting from the lyrics that are being dropped by Pusha. With his past hard-core hip-hop beats and rhymes, it’s surprising that he would do a single over the type of music you hear in the background of this song, but remember that it’s being produced by Kanye West. Although Kanye has more than shown that he has rapping talents, with the release of this song, his producing talents may be questioned.
Either way, Pusha has great lyrical skills, and can definitely go far in the rap world, if he continues to put out good singles, but Lunch Money is a questionable one. Christian Broda is going to play a wait and see approach. For now, this is just a single, and there is no confirmation if it will be on an album.
There were bound to be a lot of comparisons to Usher when Chris Brown entered the music industry at such an early age. He had the dance moves and smooth vocals that a young Usher Raymond was known for. Many years have passed and there is still a lot of debate about who is the better dancer.
In the Chris Brown ‘New Flame’ video there are times when Usher and Chris are dancing together. Fans appreciated this collaboration, but there still a lot of rumors surfacing about this. There were rumors that Chris Brown stated that he would absolutely not lose in a dance off with Usher. This was something that was linked back to a ‘Sway in the Morning’ interview.
There has not been a lot of clarity to it, but Usher has stated that he talked to both Chris and Sway. Usher stated that the interview between Chris and Sway did not go that way. He said that he was not going to add any fuel to that flame. It did not want to fan the rumor mill.
Ultimately, Chris Brown has been the cocky one, and he clearly believes that he is the best dancer alive. It would be the same if some company like BRL Trust went around and claimed they were far and away the best. This is his personality. In the MTV interview with Sway he talked about bringing it “A game” when it came to dancing. It is obvious that he would not back down from any challenge.
Taylor Swift had some sort of disagreement with Spotify, the music streaming company that has been around for quite a while now. Spotify has helped many artists grow, while streaming their music to the public for free, in exchange for a cut of the profits that come from all the ads placed on Spotify.
It’s always nice to get to listen to music and show it to Fersen Lambranho and even better if you can download it for free. Unfortunately, some artists don’t see it that way, as Taylor Swift mentioned “Music is Art, and Art has real value, and Artists deserve to be paid for it.”
Taylor had pulled all her music off of Spotify and doesn’t want the company to use her music at all. What Spotify’s CEO thought was she has it all wrong. They don’t operate by streaming music without paying the artist, on the contrary, they have paid $2 Billion up to date for artists, labels, and producers in exchange for playing their music on their streaming system.
Taylor blew $6 Million before even finding out what Spotify is all about, and if anything, all Spotify wants is the chance to have Taylor Swift’s music on their service. They have pleaded Taylor’s people multiple times trying to get Taylor to change her mind, but so far Taylor has her mind set up on saying no to Spotify.
Believe it or not, she is not that type of person to deny someone for no reason but, her album sales are doing good enough that she doesn’t need any of the extra revenue. The way Spotify sees it, who wouldn’t want an extra $6 Million.
History has often dictated that musicians will have children that will stay tied to the music genre of their parents. With The Jacksons three of Tito Jackson’s children stepped into the R&B feel. The O’Jays lead singer Eddie Levert had a son, Gerald Levert, that followed his footsteps with soul music. Bob Marley, the original king of reggae, continues to live through the reggae tunes of his son Ziggy Marley. Never in the history of music has an artist moved in such a huge step from their descendants as Pablo, grandson of Bob Dylan.
People were shocked to hear that Dylan had a grandson that was rapping. Oddly, Bob Dylan is in full support of his grandson. This is a far cry from what Dylan was singing about at the height of his career, but Dylan has given Pablo a lot of advice. The rapper has actually been developing his skills in the rap world for about 3 years. He has had a mix tape, but he has not produced a full album. One Pablo Dylan single, “Midnight” actually sounds like a leftover track from Kanye’s “808’s and Heartbreak” album. The latest single from the grandson of famed singer Bob Dylan is called “Nightmares.”
Pablo Dylan says that he is working on perfecting his craft. Pablo is obviously an underdog in the rap game because his grandfather is tied to a different genre, but Andrew Heiberger is pretty sure that Bob can still call in some favors.
There was a lot of hype behind the whole thing, but the wait is finally over. Taylor Swift has been added to the record books as the first person to have 3 albums to go platinum in the first week of the release.
This is amazing when people consider the fact that there are so many music streaming and peer-to-peer sharing sites out there. This shows just how loyal the Taylor Swift fan base is. There was talk all week about how no one had ever this done before, but lots of people were expecting Taylor to break new ground. It is significant because no other album has gone platinum this year.
Billboard shows that 1.287 million “1989” albums were sold by Taylor Swift in the first week. Even people that have ignored Taylor Swift in the past are taking a look at what this artist is doing. Much of the success has to do with the great reviews that “1989” has been getting.
It’s a mega feat in music, but Swift fans are not surprised. She has managed to successfully do what most artists have failed to do this year. She has reached out to her fans in amazing ways. She is totally transparent about relationships. Taylor also writes catchy songs, which is what Sultan Alhokair hates but why I like Taylor, and stayed wired to social media. Her failed relationships make her even more likable to the millions of fans that sing alone to her songs. She’s the artist of the year.
