Weekly Music Video

This week's video is for the single Frisky by British rapper Tinie Tempah featuring Labrinth. Tinie (real name Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu) started his career by releasing a free mixtape in 2005 and had some success with the songs Tears and Wifey. However it wasn't until 2010 that he became really successful with the release of his debut single Pass Out, which got to Number 1 in the UK Top 40 singles chart. Frisky was his second single and got to Number 2. Both songs were produced by Labrinth, who also sang on Pass Out (uncredited) and appears on Tinie's debut album Disc-overy. Tinie Tempah's latest single is called Trampoline and it's the first release from his upcoming second album Demonstration. Frisky is my favourite song of his.

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…

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.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
