The boys are back. Backstreet Boys have once again collaborated with Max Martin (‘I Want It That Way’, ‘Shape of My Heart’, and ‘The Call’) to come up with their up-tempo pop track ‘In A World Like This’. It’s amazing that twenty years later these guys are still at it. Will this be the song of the summer…most likely not but I can’t help but find myself humming along even after the song has ended. Well done boys!
As far as pop music goes, this slays. ‘Overdose’ is a top shelf tune that delivers on every level. If Ciara could only produce an entire album of this, than she might have a chance of dominating the charts again.
The girl group who defied the odds last season on America’s X-Factor by making it all the way to the final three, have just debuted their first single ‘Miss Movin’ On’. The female empowering electro pop jam is extremely promising for a first single. In a world of girl groups such as Little Mix and The Saturdays, one has to wonder if Fifth Harmony will be able to find their footing in the music industry. No matter where these girls land, I’m already impressed with the direction their sound is headed.
Wolf Alice, a four-piece rock band from North London, premiered their single ‘Bros’ awhile back, so this is a better late than never post. After one listen there’s no doubt that ‘Bros’ is some top shelf folk-pop.
