Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Where You At by Korean boyband NUE'ST W. The group was formed in 2012 as NU'EST (which stands for "New Establish Style Tempo)  and started out with 5 members- JR aka Junior Royal (real name Kim Jong Hyun), Baekho (Kang Dong-Ho), Hwang Minhyun, Aron (real name Kwak Young-Min) and Ren (Choi Min-Ki), but Minhyn has been working with fellow boyband Wanna One since last summer, so they are continuing to release music under the name NU'EST W. The W is short for "Wait" as in, waiting for Minhyun to come back. All the members are from Korea except for Aron who is from Los Angeles, USA.*

NUE'ST  released their first single Face in March 2012 and have brought out a further 10 Korean singles, including Sleep Talking, Overcome and Where You At. They also sing in Japanese and have released 3 Japanese singles, Shalala Ring, Na. Na. Na. Namida and Bridge the World. To date they have released two studio albums, Re-Birth in July 2014 (Korean) and Bridge the World in November 2015 (Japanese); 6 Korean EPs, Action (2012), Hello (2013), Sleep Talking (2013), Q Is (2016), Canvas (2016) and W, Here (2017); and a Japanese compilation album, NU'EST Best In Korea (2014).

There was also a Chinese sub unit called N'UEST M which consists of all the N'UEST members and Jason (Fu Long Fei) but I don't think they're active any longer. You can read about them here: https://alwaysdreaminghigh.com/2016/09/03/nuest-china-nuest-m-member-profiles/

WHERE YOU AT is from NU'EST's latest album W, Here and was released in October. I liked it at the time and then hard it again more recently and bought it with an iTunes voucher I got for my birthday last month. The background music is one of my favourite parts. :)

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.

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…
