I love the hits Katy Perry keeps putting out , it seems that at the moment whatever she puts out is sounding quite brilliant! The video is just pure excellence. I wont give too much away about it , Just know you have to check it out! Its a complete contrast to the glamorous and over the top production of California Girls.

The single is released August 29th in the UK and the album of the same name will be available August 26th in the US and August 30th worldwide.

“So Big” is taken from from Iyaz’s debut album “Replay” which is due in United States this September. It is the third single from the J.R. Rotem-produced effort,

In the video Iyaz meets his love. The Beluga Heights artist bumps into the lady in an eaterie and comes to her rescue when she is bothered by a rude guy. She has been dreaming of having Iyaz showering her with gifts and surprises and their meeting seems to be the beginning of her dream coming true.

Nice enough video from Iyaz!

In the 90-second video, Kanye – who has recently set up his own twitter account – is depicted in an empire on the brink of collapse.

Directed by Canadian artist Marco Brambilla, the clip takes its inspiration from Michelangelo’s frescos in the Sistine Chapel.

Album Review : Drake – Thank Me Later…

It seems like Drake has been around for so long , a Grammy nominated mixtape and performing with some of music’s biggest names all before a first album , that sounds impossible but Drake has produced. Good news though however Drake is finally releasing his long awaited his debut album “Thank Me Later.”

Arguably one of the most anticipated albums of the year, the 14-track record is much of what we have come to expect from the Toronto native . Yes, there is a lot of singing, but you cant argue with the fact Drake certainly knows how to create a good beat for his songs. With production from the likes of Timbaland, Kanye West and Swizz Beatz, the 23-year-old pretty much cooked up a very impressive recipe for commercial success. Perhaps the most blatant introduction to his career altering year is the lead single “Over,” . The thoughtful club ready track has an intro that sounds as if it was in a different decade, but it adds a little bit of todays kinda style to make the appeal even stronger.


Drake whilst
proving that hip-hop can have a softer side eases on down the road of melodic “cushiness” by way of “The Resistance” . On the Alicia Keys assisted “Fireworks”calls out Rihanna for their very public yet very brief affair) but once he makes his way to “Find Your Love,” he is in full-fledged R&B mode. Its admirable the transition he makes from singing to rapping. Among the most daring songs on the album is “Karaoke” its so interesting because (besides Drake’s ability to tell a story so crystal clear that visualizing it is effortless), he displays a  skill for jumping in one lane then another without making us feel like he’s trying to be something he’s not.

As expected Kanye West earns every inch of his production credit on the medium-tempo “Show Me A Good Time,” a song complete with record scratches, middle register piano keys and Drake’s knack for a southern inspired lyrical delivery that comes together to form perfection. By the time his Young Money counterparts Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne lend their voices to two tracks, the album seems to push itself to a whole different level as bass beats and a hint of reverb collide with well earned conceit. Drake even goes so far as to pledge his love for Minaj on “Miss Me” featuring Lil Wayne but plays coy when he’s paired with her on “Up All Night.” Other ear catchers include the “Light Up” in which Drake understandably takes a backseat to Jay-Z’s appeal but the quality of collborations on the album has impressed me particularly.

Drake has his own very clear definition of Greatness , a style newbies would be scared to try and produce. Impressive!



UPDATE : Drake released his official debut album “Thank Me Later” in the States yesterday. According to Billboard, the album is poised to be one of 2010’s top-selling albums and is projected to sell in the range of 425,000 to 475,000, if not more, by the end of the week. If it moves as much as sources think, it’ll mark one of the biggest sales weeks of the year for a single album.
