Ariana Grande‘s song, “Problem” is currently #1 on the UK charts and #3 on the US Charts and in appreciation of their friend’s song Rixton decided to cover it. I am not as crazy about the original as the rest of the world, but Rixton has made me love their version. They ommitted Iggy Azalea‘s rap and gave the song their own little twist. Do yourself a favor and listen to it now.
Pentatonix and Lindsey Stirling on a cover of “Radioactive” from Imagine Dragons has to be one of the coolest collabs in the young music scene yet. Both acts have been causing a stir in their respective areas of music and putting them together was a genius move. Lindsey is an incredibly talented violinist and Pentatonix has brought a capella groups into the limelight.
“Radioactive” is my current favorite song from Imagine Dragons (that entire album has been on repeat for me) and these guys put a cool new twist on it. It’s also nice to see Kevin go at it on the cello again (check out those YouTube videos!). The music video has a cool feel to it and seeing what each act has done on their own, this was a nice venture for them to try out.
Midnight Red, the newest boy band to hit the scene, are winning fan girls all over with their cover of Taylor Swift’s, “I Knew You Were Trouble“. I’m not a HUGE Swifty fan, but I do like this song and with these guys singing it, I love it. We’ve posted about Midnight Red in the past and have even interviewed them. Needless to say, we want to see more of them. Listen to their cover and you’ll know what I mean.
