Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Gave Your Love Away by Majid Jordan. It's from their second album The Space Between which came out in October.

Gave Your Love Away was uploaded to YouTube on 11th January but I'm not sure if it's actually a single. Both song and video have a 90s vibe, which is especially nostalgic for those of us who grew up then!

Dance Videos

It's been a while since I've featured some dance videos, so here's a new post. :)

First up here is Rumer Noel and her students dancing to I Got You by American singer Bebe Rexha.  The video was uploaded to YouTube in November 2016.

Rumer has choreographed dances for the Dance Moms girls, that's where I first heard of her. Watch a couple of those videos at  the links below:

She also choreographed and danced in the music video for former Dance Moms star Mackenzie Ziegler's latest single Breathe, which was released in November. Check it out here:

Now here are some videos from 1MILLION Dance Studio. They are based  in Korea and their clients include K-pop record companies SM Entertainmen…

New Music for 2018- Part 1

Sorry the post is late this week, I started this one yesterday but it's not finished, so I'm  going to split it into 2 parts. )

Last year I did a new releases post for the beginning of 2017. Now here's new music for the start of 2018! These songs came out at the very end of last year. :)

African (Nigerian)

Tiwa Savage- Sugarcane

Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has a new single called Sugarcane. It's the second one off her latest EP of the same name  and was released at the end of Dec. She's singing in Yoruban (I think) and English.

For the first single from Sugarcane (Ma Lo) visit this post:


Meng Jia & Jackson Wang- MOOD

Meng Jia (former member of now disbanded Korean/Chinese girl group miss A) and Jackson Wang (member of k-pop band GOT7) have collaborated on the song MOOD. It' s a mixture of Chinese language (although I'm not sure which dialect) and English. The video was uploaded to YouTube …

Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year. (Depending what you celebrate). Here's the first post of 2018! :)

Today's video is Unconditional by British singer Sinead Harnett.  Her music style has been compared to Jhene Aiko and Jessie Ware's. She's collaborated with British rapper/grime artist Wiley and dance act Disclosure and released her debut single Got Me in 2013. This was followed by her debut EP N.O.W in summer 2014. Sinead has brought out another EP Sinead Harnett (2016) and a mixtape Chapter One (2017). Her other singles include Paradise, She Ain't me, Do It Anyway, Rather be With You and Still Miss You.

I was given some money to buy songs on iTunes as a Christmas present and since I'd already bought some songs from Chapter One, I bought the rest of the mixtape. Unconditional is one of the songs on there and is Sinead's latest single. It's about unconditional love.
