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.

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.

Blood was definitely spilt thanks to Taylor Swift and Kendrick Lamar

So I’m not out to post anything fresh it seems, because right now I want to write about the latest release from Taylor Swift: the epic release of the Bad Blood video.

I know, I know. You’re all like “But that video came out days ago… we’ve all seen it. The novelty isn’t there anymore…”

Excuuuse me, but I’m still a little giddy over it.

New Music Releases: New videos from Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora, Ariana Grande and Ella Eyre

 

Nicki Minaj – Anaconda

It’s been a few weeks since Nicki Minaj posted the snap of her Anaconda single cover that caused a stir online, but Nicki has now released a lyric video for the song. Sampling Baby Got Back by Sir Mix-a-Lot, Anaconda isn’t one of Nicki’s best songs (I think I always think back to her verse in Kanye’s song ‘Monster’ when I think of her best) but it surely has enough to be stuck playing inside your head – just hope no one can read your mind!

If you follow the three ladies (Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj) on Instagram you’ll have noticed the images and snippets that the girls have been posting in the lead up to the trio’s new single ‘Bang Bang’.
 
Now before I sat down to listen to the song, I set up a blank document to jot down any thoughts I had whilst listening to it. Here’s what was written:
