Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Something About You by Majid Jordan. They are a music duo from Canada, most well known for producing and featuring on Canadian rapper/singer Drake's song Hold On, We're Going Home in 2013. (I really like that song; I should feature the video sometime!).

The duo consists of singer Majid Al Maskati and record producer Jordan Ullman. Jordan is from Toronto and Majid has lived in Bahrain in the Middle East and London but later moved to Canada. The pair met at the University of Toronto in 2011 and released their debut EP Afterhours on Soundcloud, using the name Good People. They went on to sign to OVO Sound, the record label co-owned by Drake and brought out their first official single and EP both called A Place Like This in July 2014.

Majid Jordan's other singles are Her, Forever, My Love featuring Drake and Something About You. They released their self titled debut album this February. Their latest song is Free (Us); I don't think it's actually a single though.

I think Something About You came out at the end of 2015. It's from Majid Jordan. I first saw the video a few months ago but couldn't remember the name, so just looked Majid Jordan up on YouTube. I originally thought it was just one man!

P.S. You'll notice that I changed the colours slightly on the blog. I felt like it could do with a change. :)

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 …

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…

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.
