Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Jealous by American singer and actor Nick Jonas. He started out by performing on Broadway as a child and in 2002 released a song that he wrote with his dad called Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer). In 2005 he formed the  group Jonas Brothers, along with his older brothers Kevin and Joe. (They also have a younger brother called Frankie). Jonas Brothers also starred in the Disney Channel series Jonas L.A. Apparently the original plan was for Nick to have a solo career but the brothers ended up all being signed to a record label. Nick is also in a band called Nick Jonas & the Administration. (Jonas Brothers split in 2013).

Nick has released 2 solo studio albums, Nicholas Jonas (2005) and Nick Jonas (2014), 1 EP, Songs from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (2012) and 4 solo singles, his older ones Dear God and Joy to the World and 2 from his latest album Nick Jonas, Chains and Jealous.

Nick has starred in quite a few musicals and films, besides releasing music. His other projects include musicals A Christmas Carol (2000), Beauty and the Beast (2002) and Hairspray (2011), the TV movie Camp Rock (2008) and its sequel Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam which was released in 2010 (both with his brothers),  the new version  of TV series Hawaii Five-O and film Careful What You Wish For, which is due out this year.

I've never been that into the Jonas Brothers' music or but Nick's older solo stuff but I like his new music. It's more R'n'B that previous releases. Jonas Brothers' music is pop rock.

Jealous is the second single from Nick Jonas. It was released in the US last September but they've only just started showing the video over here. It's due for release in the UK on 5th April.. Nick's real life girlfriend Miss Universe 2012 Olivia Culpo appears in the video There's also a remix featuring Tinashe, which is good as well.




Just saw that there's a Gospel version of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMb_cBv3iks

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.



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…
