New Music for 2018- Part 1

Sorry the post is late this week, I started this one yesterday but it's not finished, so I'm  going to split it into 2 parts. )


Last year I did a new releases post for the beginning of 2017. Now here's new music for the start of 2018! These songs came out at the very end of last year. :)



African (Nigerian)


Tiwa Savage- Sugarcane

Nigerian singer Tiwa Savage has a new single called Sugarcane. It's the second one off her latest EP of the same name  and was released at the end of Dec. She's singing in Yoruban (I think) and English.




For the first single from Sugarcane (Ma Lo) visit this post: http://starsparklex.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/african-music.html



C-pop


Meng Jia & Jackson Wang- MOOD

Meng Jia (former member of now disbanded Korean/Chinese girl group miss A) and Jackson Wang (member of k-pop band GOT7) have collaborated on the song MOOD. It' s a mixture of Chinese language (although I'm not sure which dialect) and English. The video was uploaded to YouTube on 27th December.





Jolin Tsai- Stand Up

Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai's latest single is Stand Up. It was released just before New Year and is the them song for the Chinese/Hong Kong fantasy film Zhuo yao ji  2 (Monster Hunt 2), which is set to be released on 16th Febrary (Chinese New Year).  I believe she's singing in Mandarin.





J-pop

BoA- Jazzclub

Korean singer BoA has a new Japanese single called Jazzclub. It's from her forthcoming album which is set to be released in Japan on Valentine's Day (14th February).





That's it for now! Stay tuned for Part 2, where I'm planning to feature new releases in the Bollywood, K-pop, Turkish and Western (American and British etc.) music worlds. :)

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

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…
