Weekly Music Video

Today's video is Pillowtalk by Zayn (or ZAYN). His full name is Zain Javvad Malik and he is of course a former member of British boyband One Direction (who are currently on hiatus).

Zayn auditioned for British reality show The X Factor in 2010. He didn't get through as a solo singer but was put together with Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne to form the boyband One Direction. They came 3rd on The X Factor and went on to become one of the most successful acts from the show.

Zayn left the group in March 2015. He worked with British producer Naughty Boy and then signed a record deal with RCA Records in July. His debut album Mind of Mine is set to be released on 25th March.

Pillowtalk is the first single from the album and is out now. Zayn's girlfriend model Gigi Hadid features in the video. Please note that the song is explicit. :)

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. :)
