Yesterday, Justin Bieber released a music video for his new song, “Confident” featuring Chance The Rapper. Amidst all his legal troubles, Biebs is trudging through and working on what he does best–making the tweens swoon.
The song, as you can imagine, talks about him being into a girl who is confident. The video inserts dialogue between him and a chick whose number he wants. Not that you could call the worst pick up line ever as dialogue, but just go with it. At the end she agrees to give him her number, but the only exchange we see is a kiss. Because let’s be real, he probably doesn’t have to do much to pick up a girl.
I can’t say I’m a big fan of Chance The Rapper, in fact, I’d probably like the song a whole lot better without him. There’s also a few choreographed dance sequences in the video, but nothing over the top. See for yourself above.

The Ready Set and Outasight? I knew this was a show I would not want to miss and I was right. I missed most of the opening acts, but I was able to catch 2AM Club and they just got a new fan out of me. They are definitely an up and coming band you want to check out. However, it was The Ready Set that I was dying to see. Continue Reading
Although the video has been out for almost a month, it still deserves to get its own post. Here’s the latest music video from the UK-based boy band, The Wanted for their single, “Chasing The Sun“. It’s directed by Director X who has directed music videos for many top artists in the industry including Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend” music video. The cinematography and styling is very dark and edgy which fits with the band, but above all the song is the best part. Check it out for yourself up top.
I met a couple of British guys at a pub in Hollywood a couple of weeks ago and they introduced me to Rizzle Kicks and had me check out “Down With The Trumpets.” Their sound is British hip-hop fused with pop and it’s pretty sweet. This song was released in September of last year and man do I wish we would get some of these overseas artists played in the US. It’s catchy, danceable and definitely one of those songs that will get stuck in your head. Have a listen.
