Ed Sheeran as a puppet you say?! That’s exactly what you will see in his new music video for the amazingly awesome single, “SING“. I just can’t get enough of this song and he just made it better with this super clever and funny video. The karaoke bar theme fits really well with the song lyrics and those Asian businessman were incredible. Pharrell also makes a cameo in the video since he contributed vocals and produced the track. The ending of the music video is classic. It is hands down one of my favorite videos this year. Watch the goodness above!
Oh man, am I loving Scarlett Rabe‘s single, “Battle Cry“. It’s intense, with a head bopping melody and incredibly catchy lyrics. I’m always happy when I find a song that I can play repeatedly without getting tired of it and “Battle Cry” is definitely one of them. The piano is awesome and so I’m not surprised to find out that she’s classically trained and has been deemed a “classical piano prodigy”. Scarlett may be a newcomer, but with soul like her’s, I think we’ll be hearing a lot from her. Personally, I can’t wait for more. Have a listen to “Battle Cry” above.
I find myself always looking forward to the next track that Meg Myers releases. She just knows how to make a song truly artistic. Meg teamed up again with producer Dr. Rosen Rosen (power duo!) for “Heart Heart Head” and unsurprisingly it is fantastic. Her songs generally have that edgy sound to them, but yet she manages to add a new spin to each one that makes them entirely different. That’s talent for you. The music video is pretty cool as well and the craziness in the end is just awesome. Check it out above and share it…it’s too good not to.
