A lot of his fans comment on his social media sights and call him “Our next generation Micheal Jackson“. Micheal Jackson was known for being the King of Pop. His touch in music was soulful and funky.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dqt8Z1k0oWQ&w=560&h=315]Can’t Feel My Face, is a very interesting song. Even though it is considered main stream and plays in the radio, he talks about being on drugs without even saying it. The song is simple, it pretty much repeats it self through the whole song but his words make a bold imprint to a memory through a certain phrase or word.
His other new single, The Hills, he talks about a girl his chasing that he only likes her when it is past five am and wants no one to know about. The reason the Weeknd is so successful is because his openly honest in a non-raunchy way. He talks about situations some people never dare to mention. His song continues to express how “his living for the moment” and “when I’m f**ked up is the real me”. He is expressing the feeling of only feeling alive when your mind is distorted from being intoxicated. A lot of people relate because after hours when one is feeling more then past a few drinks, sometimes an emotional side comes over one and has this urge to see that one person.

Galantisconsist of two members with names like Style of Eye (Linus Eklöw) andBloodshy ( Christian Karlsson) what kind of music can you expect with a song calledPeanut Butter and Jelly? Great sounds, thats what. They created a buzz when they were granted an uncommon opportunity to perform at Coachella. Coachella is a huge music festival that only the best of the best get to perform. A fact about this duo is Boodshy is a song writer and producer. He help reinvent Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Madonna.
Peanut Butter and Jelly is a fun upbeat song, doesn’t have to make sense. Does anything make sense anyways? There mascot doesn’t make sense either. They seem to be more then cat lovers. There taste is very majestic, with a cat’s body and a fish face. I don’t think they want us to think much and just let go. Perhaps his trying to help us reinvent ourselves also. Karlsson said “GALANTIS is about challenging, not following”.
A powerful voice that gives chills, expressive songs and a fashion beauty. Jessie Ware always appears on stage in a chic wardrobe ready to sing her heart out. Ware’s music videos are full of nature, people and visual images that usually illustrate the ballad that is being performed. This unique musician is from London, England. She debuted her album Devotion in 2012 and her latest album Tough Love in 2014.
“Say you Love” me was written by Ware and co-written with Ed Sheeran. This love song depicts that saying these four words mean more than just a hug, and time. Love is an highly dynamic word. When someone is in love, thinking about the other person and wanting to be with them all the time can be tough, because without them life would feel incomplete. Ware sings, ‘Cause I don’t wanna fall in love, If you don’t wanna try, and It sucks when a person falls in love with someone, and the other person is unsure about their feelings towards the whole relationship.
Jessie’s genres are Electronic, R&B and Tropical. Even though she is a fresh face to the music scene, she has caught the eye of many other artist, such as rap/hip-hop artist J. Cole who jumped on this track “Kind of…sometimes…maybe” with a remix. At the beginning it gets freaky 😝 with Cole’s lyrics then incorporates Jessie’s sensual soft voice for an even more seductive tone.

No this is not an ad from a popular fashion store in the mall, my friends this is a picture of Angus & Julia Stone. This brother and sister duo are from the land down under; Sydney, Australia. The sibling act formed in 2006 and their genres consist of Folk, Indie pop, acoustic music. They both are singer and songwriters that play the guitar and perform together on stage. Not only are they a well balanced team, they still have their own separate music projects going on as well. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV50lmpVk1E] What a cool party and video. Julia & Angus are performing at a house party with lights flickering, liquor, people making out and dancing. The normal. “A Heartbreak” a rock/folk song with a soft rhythm guitar and drums is easy to vibe too in a small intimate setting. It opens up about a young woman who went from a “good girl” to a “bad girl” when she starts to hang out with offbeat people in which she starts to see the world around her in a different aspect. “Big Jet Plane” has a chill tempo like riding in a car on a rainy day thinking about someone special. With violins and a soft beat this definitely is an unwind song with a message. As it is expressed in the opening lines “She said ‘hello mister, please to meet ya’; I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her; She smelled of daisies, she smelled of daisies; She drive me crazy, she drive me crazy” Meeting someone out the blue for the first time can be a tense. If the attraction is real it creates the feeling of infatuation so trust me for future advice take a chance don’t miss an opportunity talk to that person. Let this song give all people motivation.
