Favourite music sites/applications

These are my favourite music related websites and applications. :)

iTunes

Great for buying/downloading and listening to music. Once you download iTunes onto your computer you can buy music from the iTunes store (and listen to samples before you buy) and also upload your own music to iTunes. Visit the site to download it.

Amazon

This online shop is good for buying music, as well as books, video games and lots of other things. You can also listen to samples on Amazon. They don't always let you listen to samples on the UK site, so I sometimes go to the American and German sites instead when I want to hear album snippets.

 HMV

Website for the CD, DVD and game shop. You can get good deals on here and also listen to music samples for some CDs.


Spotify

This is an application that you download to your computer and then you can listen to music for free. The account I have is Spotify Open (the free one) and you can also get paid accounts, Unlimited and Premium, which cost £4.99 and £9.99 per month. This is a great idea because you can listen to whole songs and albums. You can also make your own playlists. Unfortunately they recently cut the listening hours for Spotify Open users from 20 hours per month to 10 a month and they now only allow you to play a song 5 times. Also some albums are only available to paid users but it's still a good site. Visit it to download the app.

Update 6/6/16: Spotify Open is now Spotify Free.



Youtube

This isn't technically a music site but I included it because since it's a video site you can watch music videos on it. Some singers and groups have their own official Youtube channels. It's also good for watching foreign music videos that you can't see in your country.

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
