New Dua Lipa Album

British Albanian singer Dua Lipa has just released her debut album self titled album. It feels like I've been waiting for this for ages! lol. It came out yesterday (2nd June) but I originally thought it was going be released in February.

Note: This post refers to the Deluxe edition.


I like the album but I think I was expecting to like it more, or rather like the new songs more (ones I haven't already heard). I've heard quite a few of them already and bought a couple on iTunes last year (Last Dance and Be The One). So those two are my favourites and also New Love and Blow Your Mind (Mwah). I also like Lost In Your Light featuring American singer Miguel. I don't like Hotter Than Hell or Room For 2 so much but Thinking Bout You has a nice, chilled out vibe. Out of the songs I'd never listened to until yesterday, I like New Rules, and Dreams best and Genesis and Begging are quite good as well. I may get the album in future since I only have 2 of the songs from it so far and I do like quite a few. If not, I'll just buy individual songs on iTunes. So now here are a few of my faves. :)

First of all here's Last Dance which was I featured as my Weekly Music Video in March 2016. It was the first song of Dua's I'd heard, although it was actually her third single: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/03/weekly-music-video_23.html


For New Love (her debut single) and Be the One check out this post: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/more-dua-lipa-videos.html

Be the One was re-released at the beginning of the year with a new video. You can watch it here:

Then here's Blow Your Mind (Mwah), the audio: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2016/09/weekly-music-video.html



Here's the official video for Lost In Your Light featuring Miguel. I first heard this in April and didn't like it so much, but I've found it's grown on me. :) The chorus is catchy and sticks in my head.




                              



This is New Rules. It's an "album visual" so there's a video to go with it.




And finally here is Dreams. The video for this is also an album visual.

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.
