There has been A LOT of new music and music videos released in the past week but I wanted to highlight Justin Bieber’s music specifically. His new album Purpose will be released next week and so far, it looks EXTREMELY promising. Justin Bieber’s songs are always catchy but I like when we puts depth into his lyrics that enable you to actually feel an emotion (rather than just wanting to dance your butt off).
Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the release of Taylor’s 1989 and the record is still KILLING it. 1989 is the fifth album EVER to spend the entire year in the Billboard 200’s Top 10. This album was a major turning point for Taylor musically as it marked her first FULL album in pop music and it certified and solidified her as a major pop-star. 1989 was everything that her fans were expecting and more. She took her songwriting abilities and her musicality and her vocals to an entirely different level and I think she was able to reach out to a larger audience through this record.
So, a couple weeks ago I featured JoJo’s new set of singles and I was completely obsessed. So she has just recently released a music video for When Love Hurts as well as an acoustic version of the song. The music video is stunning and features a LOT of hand-tutting and vogueing. Her outfits are amazing and JoJo is unreal as usual.
Ok so I’m just going to come out and say it – I LOVE J. Biebs. Honestly, you can hate on him all you want, but kid can SING. His songs are always catchy and they always seem to have a deeper meaning. He went through a lot of stuff in the spotlight, but come on, as if we didn’t do half the things he has done.
OK GUYS. Please please please if you are to do anything or listen to anything this Music Monday, it should most definitely be to Ryan Adams’ cover of Taylor Swift’s ENTIRE 1989 album. Every single song. I. Am. Dying. His voice is so soothing and it takes Taylor’s already amazing songs and puts them in a whole different level and genre. There is a haunting indie vibe in all of the songs and they resonate so nicely in my soul that I can’t express enough my desire for you guys to all listen to the songs.
