Just thought I’d share some tunes that have been on my recent playlists. A little bit of Big Bang and Epik High satisfy my Asian music palate, but other than that, it’s been mostly Western. In no particular order:
T.I. ft. Young Dro – King On Set
Totally awesome beat. Random: Is T.I. out of prison yet?
Little Boots – Remedy
Little Boots is this adorable, instrumentally-gifted British newcomer to the mainstream scene. This one’s a pretty dance-y track. Her style reminds me of Lady GaGa, except with sufficiently less crack. Also check out New In Town, which I believe was her breakthrough single.
Jay-Z ft. Young Jeezy – Real As It Gets
Really liking Jazzy’s latest album, The Blueprint 3. My other two favourites are Empire State of Mind and D.O.A (Death of Auto-Tune). I think this track should actually be the intro on his album.
Boys Like Girls ft. Taylor Swift – Two Is Better Than One
Boys Like Girls is reminiscent of Good Charlotte and Sum41, so when I first heard their single Love Drunk (also the name of their latest album), it didn’t really appeal to me. But I am a sucker for this track. It’s like one of those slow dance songs they play in chick flicks.
Ashanti ft. Flo Rida – Let’s Do Something Crazy
This has actually been on my playlist since July, and I don’t know why it’s not more popular – I find it totally addictive.
Mariah Carey – I Want To Know What Love Is
Good to hear MC can still belt it out. Kind of a homage to her ballad days.
James Kinney – Therapy
This James Kinney guy just sort of came out of nowhere, but I do like the piano part in this song. Somewhat infectious?
Ke$ha – TiK ToK (aka Dolla)
Just a fun track, with fun lyrics. Yea, Ke$ha is the girl who did Right Round with Flo Rida.
