New Ariana Grande Videos

American singer Ariana Grande has a couple of new singles out from her upcoming album Sweetener.

First up here is the light is coming (written all in lowercase) which features  Trinidadian American rapper Nicki Minaj. It's a promotional single which was released on 20th June.





And then here is God is a woman, which I think is the 2nd official single from Sweetener. (The first was No Tears Left to Cry). It came out on 13th July. This is my favourite of the two songs. :)





Sweetener, which will be Ariana's 4th studio album, is due for release on 17th August. I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of the album. :)

Dance Moms Girls Updates- Part 3

Earlier this year I started a series of posts about what the girls from reality show Dance Moms have been up to since the show ended last year. Now it's time for the third instalment. Didn't plan to take this long, but never mind! This time I'm focusing in JoJo, Brynn and Camryn. :)

JoJo Siwa

JoJo (full name Joelle) and her mum Jessalyn joined Dance Moms in Series/Season 5 . She was originally a finalist on S2 on Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition (the youngest contestant at 9), then went on to join Dance Moms in  2015. Nicknamed "JoJo with the BowBow" due to her habit of wearing a bow in  her hair,she later released her only selection of hair bows with Claire';s (formerly Claire's Accessories, that's how I still think of it!). Her strongest dance styles are …

Today's music video (or rather audio) is Body by Sinead Harnett. It was released as a single in April and has a nice, chilled out vibe. :) I first heard the song in June and included it in last month's New Music/Videos post.





There's also an acoustic version of Body which you can listen to here: https://sineadharnett.lnk.to/bodyacoustic


Update 16/7/18: Sinead now has a music video for Body (uploaded a day after I did this post!), so I'm including it here as well:


More Summer Songs

Back in August 2016 I did a post of my Top 10 Summer Songs. You can check it out here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2016/08/top-10-summer-songs.html


Now since it's summer again and we're having what it one of the hottest days so far (31/32 Celsius in some places, which is hot for the UK!), I'm sharing some more summer songs. :)


Robin Thicke feat. Pharrell Williams

American/Canadian singer Robin Thicke's single Wanna You Girl has a great exotic beach vibe and was released in August 2005. It was a Weekly Music Video back in May 2012: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2012/05/weekly-music-video_30.html


Hadise- Yaz Günu

Turkish Belgian singer Hadise's 2015 single Yaz Günu translates as "Summer Day" in English and has a suitable video to accompany it! It was released in May 2015 and I featured it as a Weekly Music Video in July that year: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2015/07/weekly-music-video.html

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Lucky Rain by Chinese singer Tia Ray featuring Hong Kong singer Jackson Wang. Tia (real name Yuan Yawei)  was inspired by R'n'B and soul music when she was young and studied performing arts in Beijing. She appeared on The Voice of China and released her debut album T.I.A in November 2014. Her singles include Dear Friend, Ask Love. Girl A-Chu and Lucky Rain. She has also collaborated with Hong Kong based American singer Khalil Fong in 2014 on the song Peace, and more recently with American singer Kehlani on the single Just My Luck (there are Chinese and an English versions). Tia brought out her second album TIARA earlier this year.

Lucky Rain was released in April but I think the video has only just come out. Jackson of Korean boyband GOT7 features on the track. The song is in English.

Race 3 Videos

The Bollywood film Race 3 has just been released. It came out on 15th June It's a sequel to the previous two movies, Race (2008) and Race 2 (2013), and is about criminal family the Singhs, which consists of dad Shamsher (played by Anil Kapoor), twin children Sanjana (Daisy Shah) and Suraj (Saqib Saleem), and stepson Sikander (Salman Khan). they run an illegal arms business are planning a high stakes heist, but things get complicated  when Sikander meets Jessica (Jacqueline Fernandez). Rana Vijay (played by Freddy Daruwala) is Shamser's business rival. Bobby Deol also stars as Yash, a family friend and business partner.

I've seen the first two Race films and they have a lot of twists and turns, so I expect this one is similar! I haven't seen it yet but plan to, although when it comes on TV. Here are some music videos from Race 3. They aren't the full songs. :)


First of all this is Allah Duhai Hai  which is similar to the theme songs from the previous Race instalmen…
