After I got done writing my entry about the new Beyonce track, I realized I hadnt given props to the other member of Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland. Motivation is her new single and is supposed to be the lead single to her upcoming album which was technically due late last year. Unfortunately her David Guetta produced "Commander" didnt take off in the states so the album got pushed. Her new track is sexy, r&b pop and the perfect vehicle to get her new album to take off. I've been obsessed with this track for weeks. I can personally skip the Lil Wayne part but can see how the younger demographic would appreciate his feature. Check out the video then buy the track from amazon below and support our artists.
So I've been thinking for awhile about who Madonna (remember her) should be working with on her next album. One of my fantasy collaborations would be if Madge and Major Lazer (Switch and Diplo) coming together to create a sound similar to the Dancehall club vibe of their 2009 album "Guns don't Kill People..." Well god damnit! Sasha Fierce not only collaborates but instead, Beyonce actually lifts the entire instrumental from Major Lazer's huge club hit, Pon De Floor. Officially titled, Run the World (Girls) with production credits going to Switch, Beyonce nails it. Using an already successful formula, Beyonce throws out another girl power anthem with angry-aggro sounding verses mixed with a middle eastern style sounding bridge. Im thinking Beyonce runs the new r&b-pop dance world....just do us a favor and dont start taking some crazy soul numbing pills....we've already lost one female pop icon.
