Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Running by British singer Jessie Ware.

Jessie (real name Jessica Lola Ware) started singing at school but after she left she worked as a journalist until she was asked to do backing vocals for her friend singer Jack Penate. She became his backing singer and made contacts which led to her being signed by record label PMR. Jessie released her debut solo single Strangest Feeling on vinyl in 2011 and  the following year she released Running, which was the first single from Devotion (the first release in 2012). Wildest Moments (the third single from Devotion) has been Jessie's most successful single to date. Devotion was re-released as Devotion- The Gold Edition in April last year.

I first heard of Jessie when I saw the video for If You're Never Gonna Move (the album's second single) on one of the music channels last year. Apparently it was originally called 110% but had to be changed due to legal issues. She doesn't seem to have too much promotion on TV but you can find her videos on YouTube. :)

I got Devotion: The Gold Edition for Christmas and really like it. Running is one of my favourite songs on the album. :)

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…
