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.
Twitter blew up a storm yesterday when Taylor Swift revealed a new song Shake It Off, a single from her new album 1989 (which is due to be released on October 27th). Making the announcement at a Yahoo live stream event, the singer gave her fans the song through the music video that was released.
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!
With my previous music review being single ‘Bang Bang’ by female pop divas Nicki Minaj, Jessie J and Ariana Grande, I take a look at what could arguably be the best collaborations in the history of music or ones that will at least bring back great memories.
Bang bang! – look out, three of the biggest female names in popular music have joined forces!
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:
Abel Tesfaye has released a video to his new single Belong To The World! It’s been a year since the release of his album Trilogy, an album that helped to further spread Abel’s popularity and grow his fan base since the release of his 3 mixtapes. The song comes from The Weeknd’s new album Kiss Land, which will be released this summer on August 27th.
