New Tracks To Listen To:

March has been a busy month in terms of music releases – so which tracks should you be sure you’ve heard? Time to see if you can tick these off the list…

PartyNextDoor ft. Drake – Come and See Me

Jahron, better known as PartyNextDoor linked up with Drake again for track ‘Come and See Me’. They previously worked together on the song ‘Recognize’ from his album PartyNextDoor Two.

Nick Jonas ft. Tove Lo – Close

Nick released his video a few days ago for his latest song ‘Close’ featuring Tove Lo. The song itself is quite catchy and the video is pretty cool too, with an interesting yet simple concept.

Zayn’s debut album is set to be a hit…

From his debut single ‘Pillowtalk’, Zayn has shown his fans and those in the music world just what he’s been working on.

A few weeks ago, Zayn posted the audio to song ‘iT’s YoU‘, a slow relaxing tune with Zayn giving us a taste of his vocal range as he hits the high notes in the chorus. Zayn then surprised his Twitter followers with the link to the latest track ‘LIKE I WOULD’.

Fans instantly fell in love with the track, which is more likely to get you on a dancefloor unlike Zayn’s previously released songs.

Personally this is my favourite song that Zayn has released so far. It has a Can’t Feel My Face/The Weeknd kind of vibe, and it’s been on repeat and in my head all day.

It’s also been reported that Zayn was filming in Manchester, UK for his next music video, which apparently takes place in a housing estate.

The future with streaming music…

Kanye recently released his long-awaited album, The Life of Pablo for Tidal subscribers to get the first listen.

Most fans were waiting until a week had passed to purchase the album on iTunes, but Kanye made a shocking announcement that the album would not be on the store. In fact, he said that The Life of Pablo would NEVER be for sale.

Subscriptions to Tidal soon reached 2.5 million subscribers, which is more than double the amount before TLOP was added to the streaming service (according to Fader).

But with services like Tidal, how will this affect fans and the way that we get our music?

Dying to see Deadpool…?

I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to see a movie since Toy Story 2 came out when I was 7 years old.

The latest superhero movie to be released this year is Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds as the knife-wielding, kickass superhero dressed in his red bodysuit. And it’s in cinemas on FEBRUARY 10TH – that’s tomorrow!

Not only do fans of the comic seem excited due to the accuracy of the costume and Ryan’s promise of staying true to the comic’s character and story (unlike the Wolverine Origins film), but Deadpool also has a lot of other people eager to see the movie.

How?

Well that’s because of the film’s clever, and most likely very costly, advertising and marketing.

Spotlight: Christopher Nolan

This Spotlight post is for one of the most successful directors and one of my personal favourites: Christopher Nolan.

What films has he directed?

To name just a few: The Batman trilogy with Christian Bale starring as Batman, Inception, Shutter Island, Memento and Interstellar.

Working with big names and leading actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, and Joseph Gordon Levitt, Nolan’s films are not like most successful Blockbuster movies.

They don’t tap into your typical action films that use conventions like explosions and gunfights just to increase their ticket sales. Nolan’s films are thought-provoking, exciting and innovative. They’re filled with action but their explosions and fighting scenes are minor props when compared to Nolan’s storytelling skills and his vision.

Spotlight: Hannah Lux Davis

This is going to be the first of many Spotlight posts. In these kind of posts I’ll be shining the spotlight on to different talented creative people from music and film – from directors, to producers, to musicians, to stylists. To not only the people in front of the camera but those behind them, and to not only those on stage but those behind the scenes.

The person behind some of the most popular music videos on the web right now is a lady whose passion for directing and creating visuals that I envy is the talented Hannah Lux Davis.

Who has she worked with??

Time to drop some names: Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Tinashe, Jessie J, Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa, Mike.Will.Made.It, Paris Hilton, Jason Derulo, Fifth Harmony, David Guetta and Demi Lovato. And that’s not even all of them.

3 Things We Could All Learn From Potential President Kanye West

So a few days ago the world ended when Kanye West ended his VMA speech with the news that he would be running for US president in 2020 (no one saw it coming… but I did say his speech would be one to watch)

Kanye has come under fire before his campaign has even started, with many scrutinizing over the thought that he might end up in the White House.

And the Video Vanguard Award goes to…

It’s undeniable – Kanye West is a cultural icon.

Whether you love him or hate him, Kanye has made his mark. Whether it’s designing Yeezy’s, running fashion shows, producing tracks, performing or writing music, Ye’s impressive skillset means he can turn his hand to anything. He may have caused a stir at Glastonbury this year when he yelled on stage “I’m the greatest living rock star on the planet!!!”, but you have to admit… he does have a point.
