Single Review: Miley Cyrus Returns With New Single ‘Malibu’

Miley Cyrus is one again changing her music identity. This time, returning to her rock and country roots with her first single “Malibu,” which will be featured in her untitled LP, expected to arrive later this year. The single is a huge departure from the extravagant person Cyrus previously portrayed. The single is stripped down, showing an emotionally vulnerable side from the singer. The focus is on Cyrus’ simple vocals, and lovestruck lyrics which are written about Cyrus longtime love, Liam Hemsworth.

Single Review: ‘Titus was Born’ by Young the Giant

It’s still a mystery if Young the Giant’s newest single is inspired by the hilariously flamboyant Titus Andromedon from the Netflix show Kimmy Schmidt. I wishfully hope so since the band announced their newest single “Titus was Born” on social media today with the photo of the character.

The newest single is a prime example of the bands indie roots.  “Titus was Born” is a powerful ballad filled with soothing melodies that feel like a sweet lullaby. Sameer Gadhia emotionally sings and tells story of a man named Titus. Check it out and let me know what you think of the new single in the comment section below.

Single Review: Young the Giant ‘Something to Believe in’

Second time’s the charm, Young the Giant has a future hit in their hands. The band has released the second single from their upcoming album Home Of The Strange – available August 12th . The single titled “Something to Believe In,” should have been released first, instead of “Amerika”.  The song is filled with a more alternative/contemporary feel. Emphasizing more on drums and guitars.  I love the complexity of the song, its filled with haunting lyrics and choruses that leave you feeling an emotional mess.The song shows how diverse Young the Giant is as a band. They are able to go from bumblegum sweet songs like “My Body ” to more dark and complex music. Overall, I am quite happy with the new single. Young the Giant is changing with time, they are exploring with their sounds. They are now producing more emotional heavy content and I love it.

Single Review: “Let Me Love You” by Ariana Grande ft. Lil Wayne

After releasing the track-listing for her anticipated third album titled Dangerous Women. Ariana Grande has released the sultry single, ‘Let Me Love You’ featuring Lil Wayne. This song has a more R&B feel than the singles ‘Be Alright’ and ‘Dangerous Women.’

The moody single begins with the words, ” I just broke up with my ex/ Now I’m out here single.”  This single is a more mature tone than her other singles. The song is filled with sexual tone that focuses on Grande’s seductively soft voice.  Even Lil Wayne raps about her more mature and sexy image, “Okay, Ariana my lil mama/ goodbye to the good girl.”

Overall, this song is a nice addition to her upcoming album. Although it is not the strongest single she has released. Its hard to compete with the phenomenal vocal range in the single ‘Dangerous Women.’ The single is a refreshing change from her typical pop sound.

With each release, Ariana is proving that she is one of the best pop artists in the world. Dangerous Women will be released on May 20th.
