Bonus!!! My Latest Music Review for Lady Gaga’s Lush new single:
See more reviews by @Jacquelinejax on Youtube
“Hold My Hand” by Lady Gaga is a spacious reverb-soaked midtempo ballad with string vocals, booming drums, and of course, an electric guitar solo. The track also recalls ‘80s-era arena-pop and Gaga’s 2011 hit “The Edge of Glory” but certainly benefits from her aged and more controlled vocal skills that seemed to develop from the 2018 vocals of ‘Shallow’ and “Always remember us this way”.
Kendrick Lamar — N95
At a time when we are all just coming out of a pandemic that kept us apart for so many years, Kendrick Lamar Digs deep on the issues we have all had to face in his latest music video N95. The video for the track “N95,” which dropped over the weekend with the release of Lamar’s latest studio album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers is an effective and passionate reaction on Hot topics from politics to social culture. Lamar tapped into so many cultural references and hot buttons that make this song one of the most relevant that I’ve heard in 2022.
Kendrick Lamar — The Heart Part 5
The latest installment in his long-running song series Heart comes with a jarring video just ahead of his forthcoming album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers. Kendrick Lamar The heart Part 5 REACTION is POWERFUL and Honest.
BONUS : Quavo and Takeoff Hotel Lobby Unc and Phew
“Hotel Lobby Unc”, the intro to Migos member Takeoff’s debut album is reminiscent of one of their first hits, “Versace”. It is an autotune based slow jam with rapid adlibs and a relative slower tempo than most of Migos’s tunes, which creates a dreamlike vibe. It is produced by Buddah Bless.
PSY — ‘That That (prod. & feat. SUGA of BTS)’ MV
It wouldn’t be summer without a fun and catchy pop song and who better than PSY to bring it. This collab with BTS star SUGA is one you can’t miss. It’s a must watch.
Greg Hoy & The Boys — Jet Black, Get Back
Great song and fun band if you love that rock n bluesy vibe. This song will no doubt be around all Summer. It’s super fun DIY video from a Top Indie band out of California.
Tate McRae — what would you do?
This song make you feel like you are the main character. It’s clearly Tate’s moment as she releases back to back videos and hits us hard with catchy in your face moments of a girl gone bad. She has the brightest future ahead of her and a cult following already in check.
Post Malone — Cooped Up with Roddy Ricch
A fun song that doesn’t stray too much from the original Post Malone sound but fills the room with summer vibes while it tells the story of a man feeling ‘Cooped up’ by his own career.
Harry Styles — As It Was
Fans are so excited for this video and album. Harry Styles inspires so many people to follow there heart and he gets them through hard times with his words. A truely brilliant artist.
Ed Sheeran — 2step (feat. Lil Baby)
It’s good to see two people from different backgrounds come together and make great music. The visual effects in this video were so cool! Amazing job to everyone that worked on this song! I’m glad Ed filmed this in Ukraine so we have an idea about what a great country it is. It’s horrible what’s happening to the country and the people. Thank you for caring and giving. You have a good heart.
OneRepublic — I Ain’t Worried (From “Top Gun: Maverick”)
OneRepublic is like the smell of grandma’s food cooking in the kitchen. You wait a long time but the wait was definitely worth it. Got see “top gun 2” in a early release and this song is so catchy and fit well in the movie! It was honestly so well done everyone was clapping at the end for minutes!
BoyWithUke — Understand
This man has made it, he went from being a very small musician on tiktok to being big and coming onto genius for a open mic. Just when you think you may have lost interest in new era music this guy will pull you back in.
