Weekly Music Video

Hope everybody had a good Christmas! (Or if you celebrated something else I hope you had a good festival and/or weekend)! :)

Today's video is One Song Away by Pia Mia. it's from her 2nd EP/mixtape The Gift 2 which was released on 15th December. The first single from it is Off My Feet which came out on 1st December. I have The Gift (Pia released it online for free  as well as on iTunes) and I bought this song and a couple of others just before Christmas. You can buy The Gift 2 on iTunes and Amazon.

One Song Away is actually an audio but if there's a video in future I'll update this post. :)

It's Christmas next week so today's video is another festive themed one! Here's Wit It This Christmas by Ariana Grande. It wasn't released as a single, so this is an audio, not an actual music video. You can find it on Ariana's 2015 EP Christmas & Chill. I got it for Christmas last year.

Weekly Music Video

It's less than 2 weeks till Christmas! It always seem far away and then it comes round quickly. (At least for me, lol). Here's a Christmas themed video- Carol of the Bells by Lindsey Stirling. It's from her new Christmas album Winter Warmer which is out now. Some nice dancing in the video as well. :)

New Delilah Song

British singer Delilah is back! (I was just wondering recently if she'd have anything out soon). She has a new song called Touch Me which is available for free download from her website.  Visit her Instagram page for download info: https://www.instagram.com/delilahofficial/

It's been ages since Delilah released new music, in fact her debut album From The Roots Up came out in 2012!  She featured on R I T U A L's Too Deep song in October 2015 but I'm not sure if there's been much since then. She's currently working on a new album, so I'm looking forward to hearing that when it's ready. :)

Top 10 Britney Spears Songs

Last year I did a post on my Top 10 Christina Aguilera songs. She's one of my favourite singers along with Britney Spears. Now here are my Top 10 Britney songs. :)

I've also just realised it's her birthday today, so Happy Birthday Britney! :)



1. ...Baby One More Time

Classic Britney! ...Baby One More Time was her debut single which was released in 1998 in the US and early 1999 in the UK (I got it for a birthday present in March). It's one of her most well known and successful singles and is from the debut album of the same name (released in 1999).
