Even though our beloved Nicki Minaj is not promoting any album or new musical release of her property, there is a field in which the rapper never rest and it is the collaboration with other artist. Basically the war of featuring is fought between lady Nicki and Mr. Chris Brown who literally appears in every new R&B or Hip Hop songs. But despite the competition, Nicki keeps up the pace featuring mainly on Urban and Pop tracks.
This time Nicki decided to duet with Parker Ighile in the very fresh Remember Me. Even though the track is rhythmically simple, it is also catchy and does not stray too much from the R&B world (in its most commercial meanings), resulting soon in a mix of many tools and effects enriched with a tropical vein.
Parker shows a beautiful timbre, absolutely perfect for this kind of sound, and I really would like to listen soon to new material from him… I think this guy has what it takes to find a spot of his own in the industry. As for Nicki, here she actually acts more as a singer than a rapper, still offering a good performance. Ultimately Remember Me is the typical good song that could fly up high if well promoted, or could sink in the deepest ocean of unmarketed songs. For now enjoy the estival Remember Me.
The beginning of 2016 will be surely remembered as the Dangerous Woman era for Ariana Grande. However, despite the big anticipation, our Ari seems to struggle a bit since the sales of the singles she has released so far aren’t exactly matching the initial expectations. In fact, while the album decently sold 1,5mio copies so far, her second single Into You, (one of the best tracks on the disc) is hobbling a bit.
To prevent that the flop of the singles could drag down the whole album, Ariana seems to have already decided what will be her third official single. And the choice fell on Side To Side, a pop mid tempo with cool reggae influences. Plus our Ari decided to play her trump card by joining forces with her friend Nicki Minaj to boost her performance.
Even though Dangerous Woman truly contains so many tracks that would greatly work as singles, I have to admit Side To Side is maybe the most original and fresh of the album, and i.m.o. it could easily become a huge summer hit, especially in the US, where this reggae vein is very fashionable lately. There’s still no video for Side To Side, but I am sure it will be released very soon. Why? Ariana sent a tweet to Nicki implying that soon they will meet, maybe to shoot the video together!
While we wait for the official video, enjoy the hot Side To Side!
Everybody knows that Meek Mill is Nicki‘s new crush. But listening to the Philly rapper new song, I guess we can witness something more. Not more than one week ago, Meek announced the release of his second album Dreams Worth More Than Money anticipated by the single All Eyes On You. A club anthem, corroborated by Mr. Chris “Golden Hands” Brown vocals which turn every track he’s in into music gold.
The track tells about the classic hip-hop love story striking lightinings at the club, with Meek spotting “the realest” Nicki, knowing that he will not let her go away anymore. Nicki, meanwhile, will do the same, keeping for her “the realest” Meek at just one condition: to stop heartthrobbing around because now she has an “exclusive”.
Dream Worth More Than Money will definetely be a massive success. For this project, Meek Mill teams up with Drake, The Weeknd, Rick Ross, Future, Diddy, Swizz Beats and of course Chris Brown and queen Nicki Minaj.
While waiting for DWMTM release, enjoy All Eyes On You.
