Camila Cabello, debut solo album | Something “big” arrives this week!


camila-cabello-promo

Following the release of Fifth Harmony’s recent album “7/27“, one of the members of the band Camila Cabello is working in another and quite undetermined music project, maybe her solo debut? (For sure)

The 19-year-old pop scarlet has been working in the studio with American producers and hitmakers Benny Blanco, Diplo and Cashmere Cat. Is she the first to leave 5H ship? Yes, SHE IS!

Camila has announced that she leaves the group on December 18th and the news has come through an official statement via Fifth Harmony’s social media pages. It was the first day the singer finished her record deal with Syco / Epic Records.

For now, Cabello has released three solo singles. In 2015, she collaborated on Shawn Mendes’ track “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, and this year she released the charity song “Power In Me” along the aforementioned Benny Blanco, and the current smash Top 10 hit “Bad Things”, a collaboration with Machine Gun Kelly.

The good news for the Harmonizers are that the four remaining members continue as a quartet and they will release a third studio album sometime next year. Fifth Fourth Harmony are strong!

On the other hand, Cabello also plans to release her first solo project next year. Are we sad, happy, surprised, excited? A cocktail of emotions, but, one thing was clear. We could see this coming.

A solo version of “Bad Things” has been registered on ASCAP. Besides, Billboard confirmed that Camila’s proper debut solo single will be released around April or May this year.

Registered/Recorded/Leaked tracks:

 

  • Bad Things (Machine Gun Kelly & Camila Cabello) | Colson Baker, Camila Cabello, Madison Love, Tony Scalzo, Joe Khajadourian & Alex Schwartz
  • Love Incredible (Cashmere Cat, SOPHIE & Camila Cabello) | Camila Cabello, Magnus Hoiberg, Benjamin Levin, Samuel Long, Theron Thomas & Timothy Thomas LEAKED
  • Only Told the Moon

 

Vanessa White “Good Good” (Single Premiere)


vanessa-white-good-good-2017-2480x2480

English singer-songwriter Vanessa White has started the promotion of her next EP “Chapter Two“, which is expected to be released sometime this Spring via Salute The Sun Records.

The first official single is called “Good Good“, and it’s a sensual R&B-flavoured track produced by London newcomer Mkulu, about the song, she told The FADER:

It’s a song about being honest with your sexuality and going for what you want without holding back. I’m not afraid to be sexual. I think that’s the Scorpio in me. In the past I’ve been worried about showing this side of me in my music, and have even been scared to be this free in the studio, but I’ve learned the less you care and the more open you are, the more real and relatable the end product is. So no more sugar-coating!

“Good Good” was launched on digital retailers and streaming services on Valentine’s Day.

Katy Perry – Chained to the Rhythm (Lyrics)


katy-perry-chained-to-the-rhythm-2017-2480x2480

[Verse 1: Katy Perry]
Are we crazy?
Living our lives through a lens
Trapped in our white picket fence
Like ornaments
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
Aren’t you lonely
Up there in utopia
Where nothing will ever be enough?
Happily numb
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Verse 2: Katy Perry]
Are we tone deaf?
Keep sweeping it under the mat
Thought we could do better than that
I hope we can
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Bridge: Skip Marley]
It is my desire
Break down the walls to connect, inspire
Ay, up in your high place, liars
Time is ticking for the empire
The truth they feed is feeble
As so many times before
They greed over the people
They stumbling and fumbling
And we’re about to riot
They woke up, they woke up the lions
(Woo!)

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Outro: Katy Perry]
Turn it up
Turn it up
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
‘Cause we’re all chained to the rhythm

Aoyama Thelma – My Only Lover (Digital Single)


news_xlarge_aoyamathelma_jkt201701

It’s been rocky 10 years for Thelma Aoyama. She debuted in September 2007 with “One Day” that barely charted at #98. A year later, together with SoulJa, she landed a monster hit, the song that defined the year of 2008, “Soba ni Iru”. The song’s success won her a Kohaku performance and kept her afloat for a couple of years until she completely fell into oblivion with the rest of the urban wave. Her intensive studies at Sophia University did not help the case either. The last that was seen of Thelma was her “no entrance fee” Christmas performance at Sunshine City in Ikebukoro which gathered so many people for her standards that she allegedly said that “she had expected only two people to come”.

Despite Thelma’s lack of selling power and the fact that most of her releases went unnoticed by general audience, she is still willing to commemorate her years of endeavors as an rnb diva by releasing a series of singles in 2017, starting with “My Only Lover”. In order to promote it she teamed up with the French company “Guerlain” that happens to celebrate the 30th year of its renowned powder, “Meteorites”. The single is released though LINE and Recochoku on January 18 and it become available on other platforms on February 2.

katy-perry-album

Katy Perry finished the relentless promotion of her latest and third major studio album “PRISM“, released on October 18, 2013 via Capitol Records and also ended the Prismatic World Tour which it has garnered nearly 200 million dollars.

After the huge numbers achieved with her Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, and released “By the Grace of God” as final promotional single from the album, the singer started to work on more new music to delight all her fans in late 2015. Her next and fourth studio album is expected to be released early 2017 via Capitol Records.

According Advance Alternative Media site, Perry registered three new tracks called “She’s So Creepy“, “In Flames” and “Heartache Crusade” early this year. Another track called “Legacy” (alternate title “I’m Threw“) was registered in early May 2015. The song was written by Leon Gober Dorthars.

According to RadioAnMusic, Perry’s manager Steven Jensen gave a brief but exciting update while speaking at the All That Matters music and entertainment conference in Singapore this week. When talking about Perry, Jensen reportedly said, “She plans to release her next album by 2016.”

Perry registered a new track called “Cocodrile Tears” as reponse on her current battle with Taylor Swift. This info was released on Mirror on August 21st last year.

The pop star has recorded a Christmas song called “Everyday Is a Holiday”, which was included as part of H&M Christmas campaign where Katy Perry is the protagonist.

Australian hitmaker confirmed on Twitter that she has worked on a record with Katy Perry on December 8th. Apparently in May 30th, Katy’s Twitter account was hacked an a previously unreleased demo callled “Witness” surfaced online.

In December, she worked in the studio with DJ Locksmith and part of the band Rudimental. The previously confirmed song “Rise” a special song for NBC Olympics was released unexpectedly and exclusively on Apple Music on July 15th.

Rae Sremmurd’s Swae Lee has confirmed on Complex that he has been working with Katy Perry on her upcoming album. He said:

I wrote this track and she laid it and it’s pretty dope. It sounded pretty dope. She got a lot of style

During a recent interview with ET Canada, Perry has confirmed she has been working with some unexpected producers. She said:

I’m working with a lot of unexpected writers and producers and … that’s bringing out a lot of different things sonically. Even when I was working with my go-to producers, I’d always push them to play me a beat that was reserved for Three 6 Mafia or something like that

During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Jonas Blue has confirmed that he met Katy in LA and a collaboration could be on its way. He said:

I met Katy Perry in LA a few weeks ago, was literally so star struck. I went up to her and I was so star struck, but then she turned round and said she was a massive of my music and would love to work with me. It was a bit weird

The first single from the project is called “Chained to the Rhythm” and it was released on February 10th. During The GRAMMYs red carpet, Katy confirmed new track from the upcoming album called “Bon Appétit“and also said we were gonna get a lot of the “old” Katy on this album.
